Dear Members and Supporters,

Many members and supporters worked incredibly hard to win back Wolverhampton South West for Labour at the last General Election, for which I am extremely grateful.

As your Labour MP, I have observed with dismay the declining state of the Labour Party since the missed opportunity of May 2015.  Firstly there was the precipitate resignation of Ed Miliband.  Next there was the lacklustre 2015 leadership campaign, in which I nominated no candidate.  That led to the election of Jeremy Corbyn, which initially inspired so many in and around the Party.

The problems Labour now faces certainly did not start under Jeremy Corbyn, but he was lukewarm about Remain, and so the Remain campaign never really got out of second gear.  The Labour leadership does bear some responsibility for that – as does the mass media, some parts of which have acted disgracefully to get their own back at Mr Cameron over Leveson.
