Hazel campaign launches
Unfortunately I wasn't able to make it to Hazel Blears' Deputy Leadership campaign launch in Salford today due to childcare commitments.
I'm on her website as an endorser though - along with MPs Kali Mountford, Steve Pound, Eric Joyce, Dari Taylor, Andy Burnham, Caroline Flint, Rosemary McKenna and Kitty Ussher.
The site is here: http://www.hazelblears.com/
Also declaring their support for Hazel today was NEC Member Peter Wheeler on his blog here.
To quote (and agree with) Peter:
"For me there is no decision to make. Hazel has my full support. She is a breath of fresh air, positive, dynamic, modern in outlook and rooted in the Labour community she was born in. Hazel will be a real asset as the Deputy Leader."
