Simon Letts, Labour Leader of Southampton City Council, has today written an open letter to all members of Southampton and Romsey Labour Party expressing unanimous support for Alan Whitehead from the 25 Labour Councillors in the city.  See below for the text of the letter:

Dear Labour Member,

I am writing on behalf of all Southampton Labour Councillors to express our full support for Alan Whitehead MP at this uncertain time for the Labour Party.  Alan has served the city as both a Councillor and MP for much of the last 35 years. His contribution to the City and to the Labour party is second to none and his decision to stand down as a Shadow Minister from the job that he loved would have been done with a heavy heart.

 

At this time of political turbulence and uncertainty it is essential that we remember what brought all of us to the Labour party in the first place. We all believe in a fairer society where the gap between the richest and poorest is reduced. We all believe in a National Health Service free at the point of delivery and the provision of decent homes at a cost that working families can afford.  We all believe in rights at work protected by free trade unions and a tolerant society which respects the differences between us.

 

The Labour party is not a pressure group or a personality cult but a political party that seeks to take and exercise power on behalf of working people. Along with my Councillor colleagues in Southampton I call for us to come together in Solidarity to offer effective opposition to the government and campaign for a better tomorrow under a Labour Government.
