Just wanted to plug this meeting. With the Labour Party NEC expected to announce on self-ID next Saturday, this is a very timely meeting.

I’ve booked.

TheRollingCrone Sat 10-Mar-18 17:43:45

I'm coming - really looking forward to it!

theaveragewife Sat 10-Mar-18 18:08:07

Yep I’ve booked too

DebbieInBirmingham Sat 10-Mar-18 18:19:06

Splendid. smile I'm speaking.

I'm very interested but not sure what to expect - has anyone been to anything similar? Will I be out of my depth if I'm not very clued up on the issue?

CharlieSierra Sat 10-Mar-18 20:02:56

I really want to go, I think it might just be feasible on the train, unless anyone else is going from Cheltenham and could offer a lift and split the petrol. In which case please pm me.

The London one was brilliant - a real sense of solidarity and an amazing atmosphere. Absolutely no need to feel any pressure to contribute to the debate so no reason to feel out of your depth.

And actually the Mumsnet crowd got lots of cookies pom bears mentions so we felt well centred grin

Charlie - I'm Cheltenham and would live to go but just thinking of the races might be a nightmare on the train

CharlieSierra Sat 10-Mar-18 21:41:18

Mrsladybird I totally forgot, or more probably blanked it out of my mind such is the horror of getting about on my side of town during the races. Unfortunately I think it's a no go for me, I've got a busy day too and couldn't finish work very early.

SquirrelWatcher Sat 10-Mar-18 21:52:00

I'm interested, but also haven't been to anything like this before - is turning up on my own going to be something lots of others are doing too?

TheRollingCrone Sat 10-Mar-18 22:54:45

Squirrel We won't be alone, we'll be together grin

@DebbieInBirmingham so looking forward to hearing from you especially!

DebbieInBirmingham Sat 10-Mar-18 23:08:58

Thank you @TheRollingCrone. I am humbled to be sharing a platform with three outstanding women.

I've booked in too.

I really want to go but like a PP I fear I may not be 'clued up enough'. Will also be travelling on my own.

theaveragewife Sun 11-Mar-18 17:41:22

I don’t think you need to be clued up...I’m going to listen more than talk, also on my own!

DebbieInBirmingham Sun 11-Mar-18 18:33:51

Don't worry about being clued up. We are all learning together. :-)

Geographytrainee Sun 11-Mar-18 19:04:04

Thank you. I've bought my ticket and am looking forward to listening and learning.

TheGoldenBough Sun 11-Mar-18 20:26:09

I have a male friend who is very concerned about this.

Are there likely to be other men there? I'm intemding to go and he'd like to come too if that's ok.

MaximumVolume Sun 11-Mar-18 20:28:51

I’m coming along. We don’t have a venue announcement yet, do we?
It would be good to meet in advance if possible, so we don’t have to arrive together, but I’m aware we need to be a bit careful.

Gingernaut Sun 11-Mar-18 20:35:30

Going too.

I've no idea where it is, mind......

OpalIridescence Sun 11-Mar-18 20:38:55

I'm going, I am really looking forward to hearing from the speakers.

No venue announcement as far as I know.

anna231a Sun 11-Mar-18 20:41:07

I would like to meet up beforehand, if possible, and go in with another person/group.
