Last Friday, More United members began voting on whether or not our movement should support Labour's Gareth Snell in the upcoming by-election in Stoke-on-Trent Central, which is a close fight between Gareth and UKIP.
In two weeks there is a by-election in Stoke-on-Trent Central. The is an exceptional election: the UKIP leader, Paul Nuttall, is standing and is throwing everything at it. The latest polls show he has a very strong chance of winning.
This weekend members of the More United community gathered in Grosvenor Square to join the Women’s March on London. We stood in solidarity with more than 5 million people in the USA and across the world to stand against the intolerance and prejudice that is becoming more common in our politics worldwide.
It’s been an absolutely massive month for More United.
In just four weeks we’ve launched our first crowdfund, conducted our first online vote, held our first action day, got our first More United-backed candidate elected in Richmond AND become the most popular project EVER on crowdfunder.co.uk.
Last weekend, something quite special happened.
On Saturday out in Richmond in the west of London, well over one hundred people, most of whom had never done any kind of political campaigning before in their lives, came together to make a stand for more openness and tolerance in our politics.
