for some reason i keep getting spam mail from the Labour Party urging me to give them money......notmally they get deleted immediately, but as this one was entitled "Be Part of the Moment", i read it. complete crap through and through, Dear Craig, As you will be aware, today is an historic day for the United States of America - the inauguration of Barack Obama. It is another step in a movement of progressive change, both here as in America. A movement like this is only ever possible with the support of the many over the interests of the few. For instance, you may have heard that most of Obama's donors were ordinary people giving whatever they could afford as early as possible - helping increase the impact of their donations. By giving whatever you can afford right now you will immediately help us in this year's elections. In America, almost 70 million ordinary people have been inspired by a belief - a belief at the core of the Labour Party - that we should try to be the change that we want to see in the world. In Britain more and more people are joining us and you can see why. David from London said: I feel inspired by what the Americans and Barack Obama have done and I strongly believe I can make a difference but realise I can only do so by actually getting involved. Rose from Glasgow wrote: There's more to democracy than just voting! Deeply inspired by the renewed enthusiasm for politics in America to get out and help fight for a political vision I believe in. Please match David and Rose's words with action - just Â£5 will make an immediate difference. Our next challenge will be this year's elections - a crucial electoral test after the first crisis of the global age. We must be in no doubt that during these challenging times only our beliefs will avoid the mistakes of the Conservative conviction to âdo nothing'. We can see beyond the economic statistics, which are in reality a family, a community or a business that needs our help. Britain today faces a clear choice between a 'do nothing' Tory Party and a Labour Government that is doing everything it can to offer real help now and real hope for the future. Donate Â£5 to the Labour Party today. Your donation will show a belief in providing real help for families and businesses affected by the downturn. Every penny you donate will help us to campaign to stop a âdo nothing' Conservative party set on repeating the mistakes of previous recessions by leaving people to fend for themselves. Please support the millions of ordinary people supporting our belief by giving whatever you can afford as early as possible. Best wishes, Ray Collins General Secretary "Our next challenge will be this year's elections", general or Local?
