Campaigning with Ross Kemp and Tom Watson
The by-election in Croydon North got a bit of celebrity sparkle yesterday when Ross Kemp arrived to help campaign for Labour. I joined Ross with about 15 activists to talk to voters in Norbury. It was a good, fun, session and I was able to dish out lots of ‘Vote Labour’ stickers to people excited to see Ross on their street.
Afterwards I completed another campaigning session with party deputy-chairman Tom Watson MP, Heidi Alexander MP and Gareth Thomas MP. The weather in the evening was truly miserable but our spirits were lifted by the overwhelming support for Labour.
