STAR


RMER

I’m delighted to welcome you to the first edition of this new digital magazine from Labour North.

It was the privilege of my life to be elected leader of the Labour Party in April. It came at a moment like no other in our lifetime. The world is dealing with a global pandemic and my thoughts are with everyone who has been affected. We are providing constructive opposition to this government, being supportive where we can, and pointing out their mistakes KEIR on a recent visit to a foodwhere we need to. bank in Darlington There are elections across the North next May, and I would urge you to get involved in the campaign. I profoundly believe that a better future is possible for this country. A future built on decency, fairness, opportunity, compassion and security.

That’s why it was devastating to see voters turn away from us at the general election in December making that task even harder. The Labour Party is under new leadership, and this is our mission: to win the trust of the British people, so that together we can forge that better future. Together we can make Britain the best place to grow up in and the best place to grow old in. In this magazine you will find ways you can get involved in campaigning now, and together we will build a better, fairer future. I look forward to meeting with as many of you as possible as soon as circumstances allow. In the meantime, keep safe and well, and look out for one another.

The Importance of strong organisation

By Angela Rayner

When Keir and I were elected by hundreds of thousands of Labour members, we made a commitment to do whatever it took to win the next election. We have seen the trail of destruction that the Tories have left behind in the wake of austerity. We have seen the impact this has on the lives and livelihoods of people up and down the country. Without power, Labour is a protest group. I got into politics to deliver change and to help the most vulnerable. To do that, we need to win.

As Deputy Leader and Chair of the Labour Party, it is my responsibility to make sure that we have an election winning machine ready to take the fight to the Tories. The Labour Party faces an enormous challenge over the next four years if we are to win in seats right across the North of England and to form the next government. But, make no mistake, it is a challenge we will meet together.

“I got in to

politics to deliver change and to help the most vulnerable. To do that, we need to win.�


The Road to Power

MEET OUR PCC CANDIDATES STANDING ACROSS THE NORTH

Kim McGuinness

Dr Paul Williams

How has your time in office been so far? I’m proud to have introduced a violence reduction unit. It’s based on a successful model in Glasgow where you look at the root causes not just responding to incidents after they happen.

You’ve been on the frontline during the pandemic, how has that been? As a doctor it’s a privilege to be able to help people and support colleagues in the NHS. It’s a reminder of the importance of public services and of the health service in particular.

Northumbria

How has the pandemic affected the job? Thankfully the majority of people have stuck to the rules and the police have done a great job where needed. They’ve also had to keep the focus on fighting crime. What will you be looking to focus on next?One of my main priorities is to get more police on the streets to fight crime and that’s what the public want to see. I’ve put extra money in to make sure we have even more officers than promised.

LEFT to rightKim McGuinness, Dr Paul Williams, Barbara Cannon and Joy Allen

Cleveland

What are your priorities for Cleveland Police? It’s no secret that there have been problems there stretching back decades. We have the right Chief Constable in place now big change is coming. I want to give people a police force they’re proud of. What needs to change now? I’ll be focussing on getting the basics right and making sure the officers have the support they need to get on with the job of keeping people safe.


Joy Allen

Barbara Cannon

What made you want to run for this role? I’ve lived and worked in this area all my life in community safety roles so I know the area and I know the job we’ve got to do keeping people safe.

What are the challenges facing the police in Cumbria? Cumbria is a huge county with population spread around in lots of smaller villages but also some large towns and a city. Losing police from the force almost has a bigger effect as the size of the county makes response times longer.

Durham

We sadly lost Ron Hogg last year, what is his legacy? It was devastating and he is sorely missed. His approach of working with communities got results and helped turn Durham Police into one of the best forces in the country. I’d be honoured to continue the work he started. If Durham Police is so good, what are your priorities? We’re in a good place to build on what we’ve got and I want to make sure that people have the confidence to report crimes and that they’ll be dealt with.

Cumbria

Does that also affect campaigning? It can do but we do have some really hard working activists in Cumbria who will be campaigning in whatever way we can in these strange times. What would be your top priorities? It’s got to be about getting more police out there tackling crime making sure the police are there when people need them.


ALL CHANGE

Jessie Joe Jacobs is fighting to to transform our public transport as Mayor of the Tees Valley

Born and bred on Teesside and with a background in the charity sector Jessie Joe Jacobs knows what life is like for ordinary people. She gets how huge the area’s potential is. But she also gets how that potential is wasted if we can’t get from one place to another. Teesside’s bus network isn’t fit for purpose. Routes have been axed, leaving communities cut off. Private bus companies in Teesside have some of the highest profit margins despite the service being one of the worst in the country. Jessie said: “The bottom line is, we pay more for a worse service. The Tory Mayor has focussed on gimmicks

instead of tackling the problem.”

Jessie will create the world-class bus system our area deserves; one run for local people, not for profit. Cheaper fares, more routes and cleaner vehicles. Jessie will use her knowledge of our communities to get it done. Jessie will be the UK’s first female Metro Mayor if elected next May. Her campaign will be a key test of Labour’s fightback in our region.

MEET THE TEAM AT

LABOUR NORTH It is a great pleasure for me to welcome you to our new digital members magazine. The heart of the North comes to you from the Labour North regional team. In England, the Labour Party is made up of nine regions, and Labour North covers the North East and part of Cumbria. We organise campaigns, training, and events across the region.

We are living through unprecedented times with a public health crisis and economic crisis likely to send shockwaves through our communities right across the North. It is in such times that the Labour movement always steps up, and we have been overwhelmed by the response of Party members and colleagues in the Trade Union movement. Next year we face a set of local elections unlike any other in the North. We have the Tees Valley Mayoral, the North Tyneside Mayoral, Police and Crime Commissioners, and local councils across the region, all up for election. Throughout this magazine, which we hope you enjoy, you’ll find some useful tips on running your campaigns but as always, your regional team are on hand to help in any way we can. The journey to forming the next Labour government is a long one but it runs right through the North. I know that we are up to the challenge, and I am really looking forward to working with you all towards Labour victories in the elections next year and the election of a Labour Government at the next General Election. Best wishes, Kate Bolger Regional Director, Labour North

REGIONAL EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE REGIONAL EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE MIKE ROUTLEDGE CHAIR Comrades I hope you and your families are keeping safe and well during these unprecedented times. There are many challenges facing our Northern Communities and our Party in the Region during 2020 and beyond. As your elected Chair of Labour North since early 2018 I continue to work as part of a team alongside the newly appointed Regional Director, Kate Bolger; the vice chair Affiliates, Claire Williams (Unison Regional Secretary) and vice chair, CLPs Joyce McCarthy (Newcastle City Council Deputy Leader); along with members of the Board elected to represent all sections of the Party from the Labour North Area. Together we are striving to work with Party staff, MPs, Regional Mayors, Councillors

We need to recognise Comrades the Labour this, whether you Party was formed to blame Brexit, the


media or complacency we need to start listening to our core voters in the North. We need to ensure we continue to fight for those on the margins of society as well as those who are working. To ensure good quality jobs with decent Pay, Terms & Conditions for workers. To protect our NHS, to educate our children, to look after the elderly and vulnerable in our society and to properly reward those who care for them; including our public sector workers. To challenge racism whenever it’s raised and to stamp out the evil of fascism. Comrades whatever our differences, there is far more that unites us and therefore to achieve these basic socialist goals we must first elect our Labour Party candidates into positions of power, whether in Local or National Government. Success in the 2021 local elections will go a long way to achieving this. We have always been a Party of healthy debate

“We need to build on our community response to secure Labour elected representatives across the region.” our values and our commitment to social justice, local Labour elected representatives have been working hard. Not for a long time has being a member of a trade union been more important. Never before have shop workers been regarded as key workers alongside our health, transport and school workers. We need to build on our community response to secure Labour elected representatives across the region. In some areas, there are no other planned elections until the General Election so it is imperative that we do as much as we can to

secure Labour wins. Along with my comrades, we would like to say thank you to Party members who are supporting others, keeping in touch with members and caring about others. We’re also really grateful for the hundreds of people who volunteered support for people they didn’t know. And a huge thank you to all the key workers who kept us all supported for many months. Like many Party members, I am really missing campaigning and speaking with voters. We have learned new ways of keeping in touch and we will use new

campaigning tools. The PCC, the Mayoral and the local elections in May are an important test, to show the Tories that Labour can make gains in our region.

CLARE WILLIAMS VICE CHAIR, AFFILIATES The Covid-19 pandemic has brought into acute focus the devastating impact the Tories in power have on our region and highlighted the need for us to effectively organise more than ever. The North East and Cumbria has suffered disproportionately from their ideologically driven austerity programme and attacks on public services, over the last decade. We have some of the worst health and wellbeing outcomes, highest unemployment and far too many people living with in-work poverty, which all add to the current crisis hitting us so hard. As an officer of the


Regional Board and as Regional Secretary of UNISON, I am very aware of the challenges we face. I see first-hand key workers, often some of the lowest paid, striving valiantly to keep our essential public services going, looking after our family members but often struggling to pay their bills and feed their kids. It is in this context that the labour movement, our party and the trade unions, must work tirelessly to expose this Tory government

for what they are and offer positive alternatives. We must rebuild Labour’s base CLARE the Williams across region to

“We must rebuild Labour’s base across the region to deliver Labour councils, Police and Crime Commissioners and a Labour government at the next General Election.”

deliver Labour councils, Police and Crime Commissioners and a Labour government at the next General Election. It is our duty to do so and stop the Tories destroying lives and our communities. This region has a strong tradition of working collectively and together we can do this.

Labour Victory!

A Day in the Life: Chi Onwurah Hi, I’m Chi Onwurah, MP For Newcastle upon Tyne Central, which I always say is the best job in the world and one I only hold because of the hard work of Labour members. I’m also our Shadow Minister for Digital, Science and Technology which is a great fit as I worked as a Chartered Engineer in tech before entering Parliament. It’s my job to develop policy in these areas with Labour members, stakeholders and Shadow Cabinet leads. Whether in Newcastle or Westminster I start my days checking the news for stories relevant to Newcastle or my brief. I have a team of around five divided between Parliament and the constituency (in normal times) and I keep in touch with them and work on policy issues through Whatsapp and email. Since the pandemic there has been a huge increase in casework, people find the mixed messages confusing or have been left out of the help that

CHI Onwurah has been Labour MP for Newcastle Central since 2010

is being provided, and we try to get answers and support. In Parliament I will generally be preparing to raise issues constituents have brought to me, or respond to Government announcements or, very often, their failures! In Newcastle I will be listening to constituents or visiting local businesses and charities, that’s mainly online now but I do try to get out for some socially distanced engagement with the people I’m elected to serve.

MAKING THE DIFFERENCE In this section we feature Labour Party members who have lived Labour’s aims and values - from community activists to fantastic fundraisers and committed campaigners.

CRAIG Wright is Labour’s councillor in Ladgate ward in Middlesbrough.

Middlesbrough CRAIG Wright was elected to Middlesbrough Council last year and has had to fight hard to support his community through the coronavirus pandemic. As the pandemic took hold, the local community centre, the hub of the community, was closed, making coordinating help more difficult. Craig delivered food parcels to residents who were isolating and those struggling to afford food. The local primary school established a food bank to deliver parcels to families and Craig supported this by securing over £1,000 of funding to keep the food bank operating. Older people in the local care home found themselves cut off from loved ones, so Craig delivered Easter Eggs

to residents and key workers, as well as to local children missing out on the usual holiday hunger programs. Craig said: “times like these show what community means, but they also show how quickly so many of us can find ourselves in a tight spot through no fault of our own - we need councils and a government which supports people when they are vulnerable. I’m proud to be the Labour Councillor for Ladgate Ward.”

Got a piece of best practice to share? Email us so we can feature more examples of members putting Labour’s values into action!


Carlisle The local elections have just been postponed, your community is going into lockdown and people are being urged to stay indoors, what do you do? Our councillors in Carlisle had an incredibly inspiring response. It began with organising a foodbank collection in the centre of Carlisle and it turned into an operation that helped hundreds of people in Carlisle. ‘We started to think about the issues…there’s loads of people out there, for years now, that have had no support network’ recalls Lisa Brown, a Labour councillor in Carlisle. They put out a phone number just before lockdown hit and asked people to get in touch if they needed help and within days they were collecting and delivering prescriptions and offering food parcels to those who needed it.

LABOUR activists in Carlisle have rallied round to support their community.

Within weeks they had hundreds of volunteers and have been a constant source of relief for the people of Carlisle throughout 2020. Through doing this, it is pushing the idea of further campaigns, realising the need on families to help feed their children, our councillors are looking at ways in which we can solve the issue of holiday hunger across Carlisle. ‘Rather than just looking good in the newspapers, we need to do something more than that and stop us needing to do it in the first place.’ A huge thanks to all of our councillors in Carlisle, and across the region who are continuing to do what they can to help the communities.
