First Labour Party meeting

Attended my first Labour Party meeting last night.

I wasn't sure what to expect, but it was in some ways very similar to an Open University tutorial, in that there was a real range of ages and backgrounds present, and some very committed people who are passionate about fighting for the best deal for their communities.

The discussion groups were very lively and hearing the experiences and opinions of people with very different backgrounds certainly helped uncover aspects to government policy that I would otherwise have been completely unaware of.

I will certainly go along to the next meeting, not sure if this is absolutely my scene yet, but I can see that I could be persuaded to get more involved.
