MayoraI Elections

have read the Tory and Labour documents on their candidates. Neither inform me of their action for positive action should they be elected. I have full information on why i should not vote for the other candidate, but little of their own Manifesto. Please advise me of those of Mr Simon

Thank you

Is Gisela supporting Marine Le Pen? They have the same views on the EU.

Remember BREXIT means BRE卐IT.

I am a third year student at the University of Bristol – I am from Birmingham and want to get involved with my local labour party.

My constituency is Ladywood and I would like to get in contact with representatives from the Labour party in that area to see how I can volunteer my time.

Ideally I would like to see Giesla Stuart de-selected as Labour party MP for Edgbaston.

Image of her and, lying boris, against the £350 million NHS false promise bus pre advisory referendum is still one that resonates with me , a lifelong Labour supporter .

I am a fierce remain voter and although not in her constituency her stance on brexit I find unacceptable. 52/48 % has narrowed and latest polls now indicate a likely closer 60/40 vote in a SECOND referendum which we vitally need.

how are the CLPs deciding which of the leadership candidates to back? while they have been banned from having meetings?

I wish to go to my clp and urge support for Mr Corbyn I have spoken amicably to My Mp about things and his opposing view which i am saddened by but all things being equal i hope he will come back into the fold once all this is over

I would like to know if the local party will continue to support Gisele Stewart as MP for Edgbaston given the chaos that has ensued as a result of Brexit. Have voted Labour all my life (aged 62) and strongly support Corbyn and socialism.

Today I requested a meeting with my MP Steve Mcabe the purpose was to understand why he voted for The Iraq War given the firings of the Chilcot Inquiry and how as members we are to have confidence in him as our representative. He constantly votes against the views of the people and is unwilling to meet people and listen to people’s views. This is fundamentally what’s wrong with the LP and why we also need to support Corybn. Please can you let me know the local structure and how Candiates are selected for the next election.

To inform you of my email to my MP, Ms Gisela Stuart, which was as follows:

Dear Ms Stuart

As your position on the fundamental constitutional issue of UK membership of the EU differs from the majority of your constituents I would be glad to know when you will be stepping down as Member of Parliament for Edgbaston.

Thank you

As a life long labour voter – through thick and thin – I have now decided that I cannot vote for Gisela Stuart in any further parliamentary elections – due to her stance on the Syria bombing issue and support for leaving the EU. I will still vote labour in local elections and will simply refrain from voting in parliamentary elections – rather than support another party. If Ms Stuart were to be de selected or choose to retire – I would support an alternative labour candidate.

Is it a silly question to want an MP who respects democracy; the will of the Labour members and the views of the CLP? Ashamed to have Jess Phillips as my MP. Please CLP consider her deselection.
commented 2016-06-27 11:37:45 +0100
I have just read that Jess Phillips has resigned. Will the constituency party, who nominated Corbyn, be deselecting her as their representative? She has said some really nasty and arrogant things and doesn’t seem to care for the views of YOUR CLP members. From an outsider looking in, I would say you HAVE to do this, or people like this will continue to ignore the democratic will of the membership. I genuinely hope you are successful in deselecting her. Good luck.
commented 2016-06-24 20:18:50 +0100
Gisella Stewart!!!

To complain about the above, a Labour member. A totally unbelievable desire to leave the EU alongside those “Charismatic” characters Johnson and Gove. Then the totally inadequate and ineffectual Corbyn who “argued” he wanted to stay. My natural instinct is to support Labour but after this never again. If she stands for the Mayor of Birmingham I will leave Birmingham!! Cameron did the right thing to resign on principal. As a Labour MP she ought to do the same. I used to trust her!!!

I am a Labour voter from outside Birmingham. This morning I have received through the post a communication from Vote Leave which includes a photo of and comment by Gisela Stuart. I have been following the referendum debate and even though I support ‘remain’ I had thought that Ms Stuart was from the more reasonable wing of the leave side. This morning’s leaflet shows I was mistaken.

On the back of the leaflet there is a photo of a smiling Ms Stuart who is known to be a white immigrant from Germany who has arrived legally. On the inside of the leaflet is a photo of migrants who are clearly Muslim crawling under barbed wire. The caption under this image of apparently illegal migrants is ‘Nearly 2 million people came to the UK from the EU over the last ten years’.

I find this ‘dog-whistle’ politics of the worst kind. The largest single group of EU migrants are from Germany. Yet the leaflet that Ms Stuart appears on, lends her name to and is from the organisation she chairs, tries to suggest our EU immigrants are Muslims creeping under barbed wire.

In the first instance I believe that you should speak to Ms Stuart and ask her to publically condemn the Vote Leave leaflets. If she will not do this then I believe she must be disciplined for bringing the Labour Party into disrepute. Labour MPs should be free to support ‘Leave’ if they wish but not to appear in leaflets such as the one that arrived this morning.
commented 2016-06-10 22:34:41 +0100
This is the email I have sent to my MP. I thought long and hard about it as in voting in the referendum is not on party lines, an MP has the right to make issue based decisions which might not reflect my views and so on, but seeing my MP so closely involved with a group of people she can have no other agreement with at any level has convinced me to have my little say. It makes no difference of course to her stance and she is unlikely to lose sleep over my vote but hey!

Dear Gisela Stuart,

I well remember that happy night in 1997 when we rejoiced in your success. I have always been proud to have a German MP and indeed have boasted about that when working in Germany – particularly Dresden – as an example of the possibility of Peace and Reconciliation. However, now I watch you smiling and laughing with Boris Johnson on the bus with the huge lie on the side, I lose all faith in you as my MP. Yes I know that your experience of EU committees and the like is far from positive but you represent part of a city that has benefitted hugely from being part of the EU. Would we have Symphony Hall – I very much doubt it? Students from institutions like Birmingham Conservatoire enjoy a rich exchange experience from such schemes as Erasmus. I could go on but I’m not telling you something you shouldn’t already know. You will say, no doubt, that such things will continue, but you can’t know that. You seem happy to contemplate a future for this country with a triumphant group, which includes Gove, Farage and so on, shaping the society we live in. Whatever the outcome I will not be voting for you again.

Yours sincerely,

Michael Barry

Anti Social trail bikes in Shard End an Hodge Hill. The summer is here but yet again being spoilt for the residents of Shard End an Hodge Hill who can’t enjoy a quite walk in the park or along the Kingfisher Trail or even a sit in their gardens without it being spoilt by gangs of kids/men on trail bikes. They will purposely rev their bikes while close to young children an people walking their dogs along the walk from Burney Lane to Packington Avenue an sometimes in groups of upto 10. They are also driving round the streets doing wheelies an at speeds well in excess of the limits with no helmets and probably no licence tax or insurance. Family time in the garden (ours backs onto the Kingfisher trail) is bombarded with the constant roar of bikes on the trail , fields or passing on the road . We have to shut windows of an evening as we can’t hear the TV. There are signs by Burney Lane an Packington Av warning that bikes are not permitted, however there are several other entrances to this part of the trail with no warnings. Then again as the warnings aren’t enforced i don’t suppose this would make any difference. I know police are thin on the ground but there will be an accident before long as they are getting more an more cocky an it will probably be an innocent person child or animal that gets hurt or worse.

I had a notice put through my letter box telling me that my local Labour councillors had tried to call today. They did not knock on my door or attempt to ring the door bell. How do the party expect to get more votes when some of their councillors do not take the time to knock on a door especially those doors who belong to students like myself when we are deciding who to vote for?
