Labour Leadership contest protest
On Thursday 7th June 2007 a number of KEIOC members decided to take our campaign to Hope university campus in Everton.
The six candidates in the running for the deputy Leadership contest of the Labour party where in town. Our placards and banners where warmly received by the candidates and Labour party members alike. A number of our group had the opportunity to speak to the candidates who expressed their surprise at the disinterest from the Honourable member for the Walton Constituency and in his role in brokering an exit strategy for our great club from our great City.
Alan Johnson MP & Hazel Blears MP took time out from "the Hustings" and both listened intently to KEIOC points of view and both conveyed support for our campaign and Alan Johnson went to great lengths to inform us of members of his family who are long standing Evertonians.
