Labour Party annual conference starts tomorrow but I came down today to Liverpool to attend the London Labour Evening Reception and be ready as a UNISON Labour Link delegate for our first pre conference meeting early tomorrow morning.
At the London reception there was some great speeches by Labour Leader Keir Starmer and deputy Leader, Angela Rayner. Followed by London Mayor Sadiq Khan.
It was really nice to meet up with delegates from all over London, some of whom I had not met for years due to Covid. Plenty of gossip as always but also lots of positive political discussion and future campaigning planning. Some of went for a (none keto) Pizza afterwards followed by a drink at the Jury Inn Hotel Bar after which I crashed out to prepare for conference and an early start tomorrow.
