Saturday’s Gay Pride Parade featured floats from some of the local political parties but clear winners must be Brighton and Hove Labour Party for cheerfulness, colour, and simply engaging with ordinary people.
Nancy Platts, Labour’s parliamentary candidate for Brighton Kemptown was intelligent, engaging, and above all, easy to talk with. The current Tory MP’s majority of 1,328 looks increasingly slender in the run up to the next general election in May 2015.
Labour was well supported with a number of their councillors attending including East Brighton’s Gill Mitchell and newest Emma Daniel, spectacular winner of the recent Hanover by election.
It was pleasant chatting to their group, a mixture of locals and visitors who had travelled down for the day.
