Putting Poole First

Our MISSION

Poole Labour Party is the opposition party in the town. We came second in the last two General Elections. Our aim is to hold the Conservative MP and local council to account for their lack of action and failed policies. 

The Covid pandemic has highlighted the deep seated inequalities in our society - from the awarding of lucrative government contracts to ministers' friends to the front line workers who've been denied sick pay. But it doesn't have to be that way.

If you are interested in getting involved locally, please email hello@poolelabour.org.uk for further details. Together we can create something better for everyone.

SYMS BACKS SLEAZE

Poole’s Tory MP, Sir Robert Syms was among those who voted to allow fellow MP, Owen Patterson back into the Commons despite being found to have breached rules on lobbying.

Just 24 hours later Mr Patterson resigned after a public outcry at the way the Government had behaved. Mr Syms needs to apologise to local residents for his misjudgment in backing Mr Patterson.

Same old Tories, same old sleaze. Poole deserves better.

POOLE LABOUR ELECTS LEADERSHIP

Members at this year's AGM have elected a number of activists to lead the local party over the next 12 months.

Emma Lang is the chair, Neil Duncan-Jordan secretary, Sue Aitkenhead treasurer, Keith Ulyatt vice chair membership, Zach Griffiths vice chair campaigns, Helen Duncan-Jordan women's officer, Alan Daniels trade union liaison officer, Jim Buchanan policy officer and Chris Bourne equality officer.

At the meeting, delegates also heard from Jo Oldale, our conference delegate about the recent event. The AGM was also the first hybrid meeting held that enabled members to attend both in person and online. If you'd like details of the next meeting please contact hello@poolelabour.org.uk.

POOLE'S TORY MP VOTES TO KEEP FIRE & REHIRE

Robert Syms, Poole's right wing Tory MP lined up with the government to vote against outlawing the appalling practice of fire and rehire - that has seen thousands of workers sacked and then offered their same jobs back again, but for lower wages and poorer conditions. It's time workers had someone to speak up for them in Parliament. That means firing Robert Syms at the next election.

LOCAL MP WANTS TO SEE MORE SEWAGE

Robert Syms, Poole's right wing Tory MP has rejected efforts to place a legal duty on water companies to reduce raw sewage discharges into rivers. MPs recently debated the environment bill, after clean water campaigners urged them to back a key amendment on sewage that had been agreed in the House of Lords.

 

Raw sewage was discharged into waters - including locally, more than 400,000 times in 2020, over a total of more than 3.1 million hours. We need a government that cares about the environment - not just making profits at the expense of the planet.
