I agree with Peter Kenyon

Bet that headline surprised you.

I often disagree with former NEC member Peter Kenyon (http://petergkenyon.typepad.com/peterkenyon/)

But he is pursuing something very sensible and practical just now.

He has appealed for every Labour member to go on membersnet on the Party website (you will need your membership card to register if you haven't already got a log-in) and update their contact details (http://members.labour.org.uk/).

The more of us that Labour has an up-to-date email for, the easier it is for HQ, your CLP and your Branch to contact you and inform and involve you, and it keeps the cost of communicating with you to a minimum. About 20% of Labour members have an email address but the Party doesn't know about it.

Please do this and if you encourage any other Labour members you are in contact with to do the same.

Dear Luke

Many thanks for the puff. You are in good company. General Secretary designate Iain McNicol retweeted the day after I launched the appeal http://bit.ly/necIJJ, and your NEC CLP representative colleague Johanna Baxter did likewise yesterday.

There will be more practical suggestions shortly via the Labour Democratic Network website
