Toby Perkins: “We are united under Ed”

Toby Perkins: “We are united under Ed”

The Labour Party conference in Manchester saw the election of Ed Miliband as leader. Toby Perkins, Labour Member of Parliament for Chesterfield, has rallied behind the youngest son of the legendary scholar, Ralf Miliband, calling for the Labour Party to take the fight to the Coalition Government in Parliament and across the nation.

Mr. Perkins has stressed the value and importance of support for the new leader of the party. With George Osborne indicating the most ruthless attack on public services in living memory in the Comprehensive Spending Review this month, the Chesterfield MP urged MPs, members and activists to campaign harder than ever to get across Labour’s alternative policies. The Chesterfield Labour Party alone has seen an influx of new members since the leader’s speech at the conference last Saturday.

Speaking after the election of Ed Miliband at the Labour Party conference in Manchester Mr. Perkins said:-

“Ed ran a great campaign and I am behind him 100% as we continue to expose the Coalition Government’s plans as irresponsible and unnecessary. He will make a great leader of the Labour Party and future prime minister. From the shadow cabinet to the branch member, from the unions to the Fabians, we have collectively elected one of the most dynamic politicians of the new generation. We must now take our arguments and policies to the streets to ensure that the Labour Party’s policies are heard”.
