I received a very warm welcome at Walthamstow CLP’s fundraising curry at Zaiqa Buffet Restaurant last night. I spoke alongside Matt Wrack and Arica Nadeem. Meeting and talking to members gave me a great sense of hope for the work we have to do over the next few years to bring about a Labour government. It was great to see some of my old friends again each of them committed to an anti-austerity movement as the way forward. But what really impressed me was the number of young people who came along and it is their enthusiasm and energy that will take Labour to victory.
