The Young’uns folk group are putting on a show called “the Ballad of Johnny Longstaff” at the Arc Theatre in Stockton on the 7th April 2018. For tickets and a short description of the show please go to the ARC Website, where tickets can be obtained.

My father was born in Stockton in 1919 and left the North East on a hunger march in 1934 aged 15 this was the beginning of his interesting and committed life, he was a member of the Labour League of youth in the 30’s and the Middlesbrough Labour party in his later years.

Would you kindly let your members know of this event, and surrounding Labour Party Groups.

I am also trying to find the address of the Middlesbrough Trades Council, an organisation he was very active in, I have emailed a Professor of Teeside University to advise them of the event in Stockton, Dad was a governor of Teeside Polytechnic.

I am a member of the North Somerset Labour Party.

To whom it may concern,

My name is Paul Clarkson. I am a member of the Labour party and in the Newnham ward in Cambridge. I am writing to see if your CLP has made its nominations yet for the additional NEC candidates.

I am also writing to ask if your CLP would nominate me. I am Chair of my ward, a delegate at GC and the European member of the Executive Committee.

My platform is on economic recovery by diversifying the economy away from purely financial services and into a new industrial drive on science and engineering, particularly using universities as growth centres. I used to work for Rolls-Royce and I am just about to complete a PhD in physics, chemistry and electronic engineering.

I have spent time working with the Civil Service and the Royal Academy of Engineers and I am an advocate of policy development in these areas. I also champion education and health reform.

I am also a writer in the entertainment industry and currently working on the BBC/HBO adaptation of Phillip Pullman’s Dark Materials trilogy (Northern Lights, Subtle Knife and Amber Spyglass).

I will be completing supporting material this weekend (video and a side of A4) and I’m happy to take phone calls to discuss my platform if it pleases your CLP. I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,

Paul Clarkson

Historical information.


Is there anyway that you can get in touch regarding the membership numbers of the Labour Party in Middlesbrough in the period 1945-1974?

Any advice on how to find this would be extremely useful as I am conducting a research project for a first year presentation at Teeside University.

Vote on triggering article 50

Dear Andy,

I refer to the forthcoming vote in the House of Commons on the triggering of article 50. My supposition is that you are not, by conviction, in favour of Britain’s leaving the EU, and the appeal I wish to make to you is based on that preconception.

I am extremely alarmed by recent events, among them Theresa May’s announcement that Britain would not seek to remain in the single market, thus making explicit that the issue of immigration is the driver of government policy with regard to Brexit. Theresa May’s dash to Washington to shore up the ‘special relationship’ is equally concerning. I notice in today’s Guardian an article proposing that there was an air of desperation in her haste to start the ball rolling on trade negotiations there, as she shuts the door on Europe. I would suggest that this visit would have had the same air of desperation even had Trump not been the present incumbent of the White House. His presence there simply makes the outcome all the more menacing. The suspicion is that Mrs May is prepared to set all scruple aside while attempting to mitigate the economic damage that will inevitably result from Britain’s withdrawal from the single market.

I can’t help thinking that the forthcoming vote on the triggering of Article 50 has been arranged with indecent haste, in the wake of the judgement recently handed down by the supreme court. Or perhaps the haste has been a deliberate attempt to force through a vote with opposition parties getting as little time to prepare as possible. Either way, the response of Jeremy Corbyn, in setting up a three-line whip, is, in my view, cause for concern. Brexiteer arguments about regaining sovereignty and gaining freedom to trade with the rest of the world on our own terms, were always, at best, dubious, as I am sure will agree. But, when even those concerns are revealed to be subordinate to the desire to prevent immigration, Brexit is exposed not simply as ill-advised, it is immoral. It is immoral that immigrant populations should be blamed for overcrowding in parts of the south, when, in reality, a significant part of the population growth there is the result of depopulation in the north. It is immoral that the Good Friday Agreement could be destroyed on the whim of racists. It is immoral that the Prime Minister should curry favour with the demagogue in the White House, in an attempt to mitigate the economic disaster that is Brexit.

In the run-up to the vote on the triggering of Article 50, much is being made in the media of the dilemma of those Labour MPs who represent constituencies that supported remaining in the EU and who are now on account of the three-line whip, being forced to support this motion. By that reckoning, no Middlesbrough MP should have an issue with voting in favour. What I would suggest, on the contrary, is that allowing the outcome of the referendum to determine how you vote is to succumb to precisely the same populism that gave us Brexit in the first place.

I urge you, therefore, to bring your influence to bear on those in the Party, who wish to force MPs to support the Government’s motion, and to demand a free vote. More than, this, however, and regardless, of whether the three-line whip remains in place or not, I urge you not to support the triggering of article 50, to vote with conscience, and to oppose all legislation that furthers the cause of Brexit.

Thank you
