Xmas card returned to sender

THIS Christmas, I was surprised to receive in the mail, a Christmas card from Ed Miliband, leader of the Labour Party.

Ed wanted to thank me for joining the Labour Party during 2010.

However, I had to return the card with a message written by me which said: ‘Unsolicited! - I am no longer a member of the Labour Party. Please remove me from your database!’

While it is unlikely that I will receive another Christmas card from Ed, I do wish him luck in his job as leader of the opposition in the House of Commons.

However, as a socialist, I will work shoulder to shoulder with local Fenland Labour Party members during the May 2011 elections to Fenland District Council.

By doing so, I hope that, in a small way, I will be able to help Fenland Labour Party oppose all the proposed cuts at Fenland Hall by the current Conservative administration.
