There are three updates:
Firstly, a reminder of next Saturday 2nd September Meeting at St Johns Hall Penzance 10.30
Please also see the updated version of the Common Platform 1 document which was circulated by Andrew George.
You may remember we discussed this at our first meeting in Penzance and we all agreed that it was a fair representation of the common ground that all the centre-left parties share.
It’s purpose, both then and now, is to find a form of words which ‘captures a perspective and a set of values that bind a broad group of people together’ and ‘raises the discourse above the process and personality laden obsession of routine tribal disputation’.
It is not a manifesto but it ought to be attractive to Liberal Democrat, Green, Labour and MK parties and to non-aligned floating centre-left voters.
Secondly, Make Votes Matter is holding a first local group meeting on Wednesday 20th September 7.30pm at the Old Bakery Studios in Truro click here for details>>>
Thirdly, Labour are also hosting a separate discussion on Proportional Representation on 4 September – see below. You can register here>> I have already had my wrists slapped on this one so I will go carefully:
This is not an ‘official’ Labour event – just an event put together by interested Labour members who want to see their party adopt PR as a Manifesto commitment.
It is not open to non-Labour members as I originally suggested. Common Platform 1
