'Bold and Realistic' - Labour Manifesto Launch in Birmingham

Had an amazing day today helping with the launch of Labour's manifesto. Almost 600 people came to the event, and I heard that even at short notice spaces for the event went in a matter of days. It was a rich and diverse audinece - young (very young - a two month old baby!) to those who are in their seventies and eighties. My favourite quote from Gordon today - 'The future can be Progressive or Conservative, but not both." That's what you call a choice, and its at the heart of this election.
