Please welcome Henry Tufnell, our Labour candidate for the new constituency of Mid and South Pembrokeshire in the next General Election. We will be going all out with him in our efforts to achieve Labour MPs for Pembrokeshire and a Labour Government in the UK.
Located in South-West Wales, Preseli Pembrokeshire is a constituency covering the upper half of the county. Having lost our parliamentary seat to Stephen Crabb in 2005, we came close to regaining the seat in 2017, falling short by only 314 votes. Now one of the country’s key marginal seats, we need your help to turn Preseli Pembrokeshire red again!
I’ve been a Labour Party member for just over three years having initially registered to support Jeremy Corbyn in his leadership bid. When the 2017 snap General Election was announced, I volunteered as a digital campaigner, helping support Philippa’s campaign online as well as getting involved on the ground. Through getting involved in my constituency I’ve made many great friends and been part of many great events.
Owen Jones Campaign Day - Preseli Pembrokeshire
On Saturday 14th October Guardian Journalist Owen Jones visited Preseli Pembrokeshire as part of his National #Unseat Campaign, targeting key marginal constituencies and their infamous Conservative MPs. The campaign aims to increase awareness of the positive, progressiveness alternative available to the hard-right austerity of the current government. Labour have a bold and positive vision as well as a fantastic team waiting to take their place in government when the current coalition of chaos inevitably falls apart.Thanks to the hard work from members of the Labour Party, Momentum and The People's Assembly Against Austerity we were able to enjoy a day full of enthusiasm and hope in Pembrokeshire. Members of the public were able to meet Owen and listen to inspiring speeches from Nia Griffith MP and members of Momentum in the morning and then enjoyed lunchtime canvassing across Pembrokeshire, pitching their vision for a brighter future to potential voters on the doorstep. The afternoon saw a large rally take place at Castle Square, with a number of awe inspiring speeches from a variety of political figures and attracted hundreds of members of the public. The event was followed by a Comedy Night at Pembrokeshire College, headlined by the fantastic The Artist Taxi Driver Mark McGowan.Thank you to everyone who took part in what was an unforgettable day. As Owen says, change happens from below. It will be YOU that unseats Stephen Crabb. YOU can change this Country for the better.Please share this video and our message. Encourage your colleagues, family and friends to get involved. They can make the difference.Posted by Pembrokeshire Labour Party on Donnerstag, 19. Oktober 2017

The Labour Party is a democratic member-based organisation. We hold regular branch meetings as well as monthly all member meetings where you can discuss issues and help shape the party for the future.
