Labour Party Summer School 2003

“A welcome forum for debate,” is how Jordan Carter, Young Labour President, is describing this weekend’s Labour Party Summer School, to be held on the Wairarapa Coast at Riversdale Beach.

In response to Labour Party members’ desire for a relaxed setting for in-depth political debate, Young Labour has organised the inaugural Labour Party Summer School which has so far attracted over forty registrations from around the country, including ministers, MP’s and Labour activists.

“Our aim is to get Labour Party members together for the kind of in-depth discussion and debate, on a national level, which the standard Conference programme and pressures preclude,” said Jordan Carter.

“This is a calmer forum for activists to share experiences, talk about social democratic politics – and, most importantly, talk about the ideas that will drive Labour-led Governments in the long term.

“Like all Party forums, a depth of experience is available. We’ve put together a varied and useful programme of political debate and education that will leave all participants with a deeper – and shared – understanding of what social democracy in our country means today,” said Jordan Carter.

The programme kicks off on Friday morning with a presentation from Labour Party General Secretary, Mike Smith, and will conclude with a challenge speaker from the Green Party, co-Convenor Catherine Delahunty, on the Sunday morning.

There are a lot of good reasons to feel joyful about this outcome. It is what so many young voters – the best hope for the country’s future – wanted.

Far more important than the implications for the Economy Gods ( is the dollar up or down? ) last night’s outcome will also mean many, many vulnerable New Zealanders will have a better life over the next three years at least.

Yet the desire for change was in the majority, across the country..>>>More
