It was a pleasure to welcome former Labour Cabinet Minister John Denham to Barnsley last week.
Since leaving Parliament John has developed the English Labour Network, which seeks to promote a progressive English patriotism and the importance of the Labour Party winning in England.
It was great to hear from John on this issue, and more specifically about the influence and importance of towns like ours to future elections, where we may hold the key to the next Labour Government.
We had a good discussion with lots of ideas put forward. You can read more about the English Labour Network here.
