We often talk about the progress the party is making and the things we want to change, but beyond some of our larger national successes we don't say as much as we could about when we do make an impact. Its time to change that, so:
It is starting to feel like we are making real progress on some of our core issues - maybe not as much or as quickly as we might wish, but enough to show that we can be a real force for change, now!
In Manchester, we have been facing off with the Labour Party in elections for the best part of 4 years on a raft of local issues, including digital. It's significant, then, that this week Manchester Labour have decided that they finally want to follow our lead and push for 'Better Broadband' in the run up to the local elections! Granted, they have been a bit slow off the mark and in the past have been dismissive of such issues, but we have shown them the way and they are now at least talking about it... and it is an important issue.
