They said that Glasgow North East was the one seat that the SNP could not take, that come hell or high water, they would stick with Labour. But in 2015 not only did Anne McLaughlin win the seat for the SNP, she broke the BBC swingometer and she broke the record for the highest political swing in modern UK political history.
Let us offer 3 reasons why you should donate something to ensure we get Anne re-elected to what was once deemed ‘Labour’s safest seat’.
1) Since her election she has done as she promised to do and fought ‘tooth and nail’ for her constituents in the House of Commons. She is fearless in the face of the Tory establishment and challenges them whenever she can, on any issue.
2) In the constituency she has put her heart and soul into being as accessible as possible to those who need her help. On top of her regular surgeries across the constituency, the office goes on the road spending one day a month in Possilpark, one in Milton and one in Ruchazie. With low car ownership and high levels of deprivation Anne is determined to make it as easy as possible for people across the constituency to get her help. And when they do, she fights for justice for them. She has helped thousands of people.
3) Building on the referendum campaign she has championed people power bringing politics back into the local community. Over the last two years she has held events on topics ranging from community land takeovers to getting justice for those who were missold Green Deal insulation and solar panels. Anne is very much the community's champion and representative.
Please give what you can to re-elect Anne.
Please SHARE this appeal.
And please accept Anne's heartfelt thanks for enabling her to keep doing this.
