Jeremy Corbyn speaking in Margate

Things are on the move in North Thanet Labour Party.

Supporters of Jeremy Corbyn have won all the key offices in the constituency which includes Margate and Herne Bay.

Barry Lewis is now secretary, John Gibson chair, Jon Worrow treasurer and Pauline Farrance women’s officer.

Membership has trebled, and new members are being converted on the doorstep, while ambitious plans for canvassing the area have been launched.

One of the prime movers behind the changes is Barry Lewis, who was once a councillor in Thanet.  He was famed for his stand against Margaret Thatcher’s poll tax back in 1990 and his clashes with Tory MP Roger Gale.

One insider told the Watch: “After years of inactivity, North Thanet Labour is going places. Watch this space.”
