Labour general secretary’s conference speech cheered throughout and ends to standing ovation
Labour general secretary Jennie Formby spoke to the party’s annual conference this afternoon – and brought the house down, to a series of cheers and a standing ovation.
Speaking about the cancer treatment she is still undergoing without a trace of self-pity, she turned her experience into a salute to the NHS – and a party political broadcast for the Labour Party who founded and will restore it, reversing the Tories’ damaging privatisation:
Formby also spoke about the party’s considerable progress in its disciplinary processes and its commitment to fighting racism, it’s transformative policies and the efforts of Labour members to get them out to the public.
It was a humbling display of the spirit, vision and the passion for the welfare of the many that makes the Labour movement the hope of a decent and compassionate society for all.
