On Friday 27th February, the White Hart Inn in Cinderford played host to Labour MP, Tom Watson, Parliamentary Candidate Steve Parry-Hearn, and a room packed full of supporters.
Following the evening, Watson added his total support for our would-be Forest Labour MP:
“Steve Parry-Hearn is as passionate and caring as they come. His easy nature instils great support from local members. This seat is is definitely a possible gain for Labour. I have a hunch that ‘the Forest’ is looking for someone that represents them.”
“Mark Harper MP, with his chequered history this parliament and smooth Metropolitan ways does not fit this seat. Those 5,000 former Xerox workers who lost well-paid jobs do not have an MP who is on their side. Steve would be”.
