By membership, Lewes Labour is now the biggest political movement in the Lewes District with around 1500 members. Lewes is a relatively affluent area so why Labour?

The Lewes District is suffering from the politics of austerity that affect the rest of the country: Poor and unaffordable housing, insufficient social care, low wages, zero hours contracts and substandard public transport. These are just a few reasons why people in our urban and rural areas have had enough.

So what are Lewes Labour doing to change things for the better? Nationally The Labour Party has produced a  manifesto that has given voters a very clear choice for the first time in a generation. The end to austerity and the growth of social justice.

Locally we are a party for all members of the community, including the young and elderly in everything we do. We fight for justice together, help to feed each other and celebrate the good times together. We are a party of hope, and believe that together we can really make a change for the better in our communities.

European Election – Don’t forget to Vote!

This Thursday 23 May 2019, elections will be held for the European parliament across the U.K.  The Labour Party have 10 candidates standing in the South East region and votes will be calculated using the d’Hondt method, a form of proportional representation.

You do not need your polling card to vote.

Why Vote Labour in the European elections?

”Britain is divided as a nation, and some politicians view these elections as an opportunity to stoke those divisions. Labour is the only party trying to bring our country back together.

Whether you voted to Leave or to Remain, our politics needs to change because it is only working for a few at the top – whether in Westminster or in Brussels.

Labour has the policies that will deliver the change our country needs, and will work across Europe to take on the challenges facing our continent.”
