@PragRad: Newham Top of the Policies

"Have you got a policy idea that you think Labour should adopt? If so come and pitch it, in just 90 seconds, at the Newham Top of the Policies event.

When: 7pm for 7:30pm start, Thursday 19 September 2013
Where: Upstairs bar/cafe, Stratford Picture House, E15 1BX

What: Pitch your policy idea in 90 seconds, followed by 90 seconds of fast paced question from the audience. A vote at the end of the night will decide which is the Top Policy with a reward of much kudos, possibly a prize and the opportunity to write and article on your policy for Labour Uncut.
We've already had submissions to pitch a policy about housing, domestic violence, cycling and education (but we can have more than one policy on a topic).

Who: All Labour Party members and supporters are welcome whether they want to pitch, ask questions or just come along. Our MP Lyn Brown and Shadow Minister Stephen Timms MP will be chairing and time keeping.

Pragmatic Radicalism has held lively Top of the Policy events across the country where Parliamentarians listen to policies and ideas from members and activists. Some of the previous winning ideas include: supporting businesses that provide jobs for ex-offenders, valuations for private lettings, including enterprise in the curriculum and opening up government data to entrepreneurs.

We look forward to seeing you there. But please let us know if you want to pitch and idea (we need to do a ballot paper) or want to know more by emailing both Julianne on juliannemarriottATmeDOTcom and Farah on farah_nfwiATyahooDOTcom. Numbers are limited so RSVP and let them know if you are coming (and what CLP or affiliate you are from)". 

Hat tip West Ham CLP newsletter.
