Former Labour Chairperson backs Greens in Lancaster by-election

I just saw this from UK Polling Report, I hope Gareth Webb doesn’t mind me posting it here:

“All the signs are that Ian Chamberlain will take the seat for the Green Party – I wish him good luck. As the ex Chairperson of the Labour Party Constituency of Lancastr & Fleetwood, I resigned my membership of Labour (disgusted with Iraq and the expenses scandal). I recently joined the Green Party in Lancaster and am working hard to convince floating voters to use their vote wisely on 1st April and vote GREEN. It is the only option in Lancaster, progression, transparency, accountability and above all honesty and real connection with the electorate. This IS the Green Party & Ian Chamberlain has my full support and backing and of course my VOTE on 1st April 2010. He will make a formidable city councillor. I urge anybody who is ‘unsure’ to vote GREEN on 1st April 2010.”

For those of you who might be interested, Gareth comes from a family with a proud commitment to progressive politics, his grandfather was Maurice Webb, the Food Minister in the 1945 Labour Government.

Well done, Gareth, it’s great to have you in the Greens.
