The evening sees the launch of our campaign local services, local solutions
at Manchester City Hall. Despite it being last night of conference we still have a decent turnout. I do the overview of what the campaign is about and introduce our new pamphlet. The stage set looks really good and our new logo is impressive.
Tony Wilson who is now a well known Radio Broadcaster in the North West and used to be the man behind factory records when the reinvention of Manchester as Madchester began, opened the event with his view of what the public want from public services. We had the Leaders of the two biggest Labour controlled authorities in the U.K. Sir Richard Leese from Manchester and Steven Purcell form Glasgow providing the local government response. The event goes well and the campaign is off and running.
