This Saturday 3 November 2018 is a Labour Party “National Day of Action” and we would be delighted for you to join us.
We will be holding a street stall in Earl’s Court, our most marginal ward, from 10am until lunchtime where we will be talking to local residents and distributing leaflets.
We are meeting outside Earl’s Court tube station (Earl’s Court Road entrance) at 10am and erecting the stall nearby.
We were only 100 votes off winning Earl’s Court in the local elections this year so a continuous Labour presence is vital. We hope you can come and support our “shadow councillors” Bruno de Florence and Sam Batra in the ward.
The National Party Constitutional Committee is the The top body that deals with disciplinary cases involving Labour members. After Labour conference voted to increase the size of the NCC from 11 to 25 members last month, there are now six vacancies to fill. It’s an important race, both for those within Labour who feel strongly the party needs to get a grip on antisemitism, and for those who believe such accusations are often motivated by wanting to attack the leadership.
See attached PDF for details of the different slates of candidates.

Kensington & Chelsea is London’s smallest borough. But from the Canal to the Thames, the strength of our heritage, the warmth of our diverse communities and the extent of our potential are beyond measure.
We’re proud of our cutting-edge schools, museums and universities; our world-famous Carnival; our unique small shops and markets; and the ability of our communities from across the world to come together – whether in celebration or crisis.
We deserve a council that cherishes and preserves our borough for future generations. This has not been happening. The Conservatives’ rent rises and benefit cuts are forcing families out and breaking communities. Social housing is neglected and unsafe. Our schools, police, and care services are starved of funding. The concerns and complaints of residents fall on deaf ears. Within our borough, life expectancy varies by decades. The response to the Grenfell Tower tragedy continues to move painfully slowly, with a bereaved community fighting for justice.

After announcing our 2018 Local Elections Manifesto we’ve been inundated with praise for our forward thinking approach to how we plan to run the council.
We’ve now produced a handy pocket sized guide for you to easily share our plans for the borough with your friends and family. Read it here: Kensington and Chelsea Short Manifesto.
