My week ahead, 15 - 21 September 2014

Monday – 15 September, 6pm – Labour Group meeting

Wednesday 17 September, 2pm – Labour campaigning in East Ipswich
6pm – Ipswich Borough Full Council meeting

Thursday – 18 September, 5pm – North East Partnership Group meeting
6pm – North East Area Committee meeting – St John’s Church

Another busy week ahead not only with meetings and campaigning but also spending as much time as possible watching the last few days of the Scottish Independence referendum campaign. It has been a long campaign but one that has overtaken all other news in the last 3 weeks as the opinion polls seem to indicate it will be a close run thing.

For all leaders the result on Friday will have a lasting effect, a ‘Yes’ vote will make it harder for Labour to win a General Election, Lib Dems will lose even more MP’s and Cameron will be known as the Prime Minister who presided over the break up of the union.

If it is a ‘Yes’ result there will still be some winners – Salmond (and his ego) Boris Johnson and all those Tories who are ‘little’ Englanders at heart.

Losers will be Cameron, Clegg and Ed Miliband but the biggest losers will be the people of Scotland (and also the rest of us in the United Kingdom)
