Welcoming Owen Smith to Nottingham

Welcome Owen, to Nottingham.

Nottingham – home to the Tales of Robin Hood.
For the many, not the few.
And we carry that standard.
Robin Hood Energy,
offering cheaper energy rates,
including for those on pre-payment meters.
Helping most those who need help most.
Radical change,
delivered by mainstream Labour,
Councillors who I know are voting for Owen Smith.

Welcome to Nottingham University,
served by a tram extension,
opened a year ago this week,
made possible by charging those who continue to drive to work,
rather than a general burden on the “rates”.
Radical change, green change,
delivered by mainstream Labour,
Councillors who are voting for Owen Smith.

Welcome to Nottingham South,
served by a Labour MP,
who understands that it is not acceptable to be undermined at work by your boss.
A Socialist and trade union value – isn’t it?
And we know Lilian Greenwood is voting for Owen Smith.

And by the way, Nottingham South voted REMAIN,
including in neighbourhoods that MOSAIC said wouldn’t,
and in Nottingham East
cos we cared about the result –
and overwhelmingly, those that cared and those that campaigned – are voting for Owen Smith.

Welcome to Nottingham,
here, where the physics of body scanning was developed,
and in the city centre, where Ibuprofen was invented.
Home to Boots and a large number of small enterprises doing biological research.
Our message – do not play politics with Nottingham’s jobs and Nottingham’s economic future.
A very Nottingham reason – to vote for Owen Smith.

Greetings from the John Heppell Tiger Squad,
and the campaigning here and in the marginal seats that says,
we can talk to people who vote Conservative,
And win them over.
3 Conservative Councillors left out of 55.
Big gains,
Made possible by the street craft and passion of mainstream Labour,
MPs and Councillors – who are voting for Owen Smith.

We need no angst from people about principles vs. power.
After years of commitment,
it is second nature to us – we need both.
And with both we deliver radical change –
led here by MPs, Councillors and campaigning members – who are voting for Owen Smith.

Because Owen, you have demonstrated a commitment to radical change, and to winning a General Election.

Welcome Owen, to Nottingham.
