Labour: With you in tough times


These are tough times for people and their families. The local election on Thursday 3rd May is your chance to have a say on what the Conservative-led government is doing and how it is affecting you, your family and your community.

And, here in Birmingham, it is also a chance to get rid the Conservative led Council which is failing our city and its people.

A strong local team for Labour in Kings Norton, Longbridge, Northfield and Weoley

What you need now, more than ever, is a strong local Labour voice to stand up for you, your family, your friends and your neighbours.

Across the constituency we have excellent candidates who will be your voice in tough times:

Kings Norton – Vote Val Seabright

Longbridge – Vote Jess Phillips

Northfield – Vote Brett O’Reilly

Weoley – Vote Steve Booton
