Can ordinary Labour Party members reclaim the party?

Do ordinary Labour Party members have enough influence in the party they support? Michael Jacobs, the general secretary of the Fabian Society, will be addressing this question when he speaks on the topic: The Labour government and party activists: bridging the gap. This meeting is organised by a number of Labour Party members in Hornsey and Wood Green constituency who have adopted the slogan Reclaim the Party. Their objective is to work for change within the party so that ordinary members have more "bottom up" influence. For a start, they would like ordinary members to be able to use normal party communication channels to communicate with fellow members rather than have to place adverts such as this! The meeting is open to all party members and will take place at:

Wood Green Labour Club, Stuart Crescent, London N22 (Wood Green Tube) 7.30pm. For more information, telephone 020 8348 0143 or e-mail: reclaimtheparty@yahoo.com.au
