A new beginning

A

I joined the Party when our Leader was elected, and when I was living in outer, True-Blue darkness in Seaton – part of the Tiverton and Honiton constituency of Neil Parish.

I liked Seaton, and enjoyed working with the eager and energetic activists that made up the Seaton virtual branch; but gathering age and decrepitude led me to desert the Seaton sea air for the cosy fug of the city of Exeter – so much more convenient for the hospital.

And, miracle of miracles, after years under the Tory yoke I now live under Labour rule, at both City and Parliamentary levels. The local Branch has proper headquarters and lots of meetings – and yet I miss the pioneering activism of the outcast status we had in Seaton.
