We’ve won! Harriet was elected deputy leader of the Labour Party with 50.43% of the vote. I’ve been responsible for the website of the campaign that has at least played a small part in the successful result. Harriet defeated Alan Johnson in the final round, after Blears, then Hain, Benn and Cruddas were eliminated. I’m very happy to have played a small role in the successful effort! Full details on the Labour website.
I was surprised and happy when I saw the result. Labour needs more strong women in leading positions, and the bumber sticker is good news…!
Jon – Warm congratulations to you.
That’s news Jon! Keep us updated then!
Let’s hope so!
She has a EU sticker on the bumper of her car, so she’s reasonably pro-EU… 🙂
Congrats! Didn’t expect this at all.
Let’s hope she will soften Gordon’s stance on the EU!
