As your leader Henry’s main priorities are:
Professionalise its structures; better select, train and prepare its candidates and staff; improve its planning; improve its financial management; improve internal communication and boost its membership.
Involve all levels of the party in developing policy.
Not be constrained by a left, centre, right agenda. The party must pursue the most effective policies, regardless of where those policies lie on the traditional left-right, spectrum.
Establish unity of purpose and vision in the world beyond Brexit.
Avoid discrimination and extremism.
Continue to have the courage to debate difficult issues that others fear to address, but do so constructively, working with communities and businesses to define solutions for their problems.
Remain firmly rooted to it’s patriotic belief in Britain.
As leader I will drive all of these internal agendas and deliver meaningful internal change.
