Congratulations to Iain McNicol who has just been appointed as the new General Secretary of the Labour Party.
Iain is currently the National Political Officer of the GMB. Check out this bio on Labourlist.
The picture above of Iain is from the LGA Labour Group Spring Conference when he spoke at a fringe "Representing our Roots" with Cllr Josie Channer (Barking & Dagenham) and Cllr Ann Lucas (Coventry) middle.
Iain gave a number of quotes during his presentation - I liked this one from former GMB and Labour Party leader JR Clynes “I didn’t come into politics to fight the class struggle I came to end it!”.
