Why you should support the #UnseatIDS Fighting Fund
Iain Duncan Smith is the architect of some of the Tories' cruellest policies. He helped design cuts which devastated the lives of disabled people. Humiliating and distressing work capability assessments. The bedroom tax. Attacks on the low-paid.
In 2015, IDS had a majority of over 8,300. It's now less than 2,500. With a big push, Iain Duncan Smith will lose his seat. Chingford and Woodford Green: LABOUR GAIN - imagine those words flashing up on your TV screen. And it will be down to you.
A general election could happen at any moment. It could be this year. Jeremy Corbyn has asked us to be on a permanent general election footing. We can only defeat Iain Duncan Smith if we get out there and campaign now.
But campaigning costs money, and we don't have the multi-millionaire backing the Tories have. So I'm asking you to contribute whatever money you can to help defeat Iain Duncan Smith - and to ensure he's replaced by a great Labour MP. It's up to you. You can make history - and help change this country forever.
All funds raised will go to the Chingford and Woodford Green Labour Party to support local efforts to defeat IDS at the next general election, including campaign materials, social media promotion and organising capacity. The more we raise, the more we can do. To kick things off we are organising a mass canvassing day on Sunday 9th July, which hundreds of people have already signed up for. With a bit of money and a lot of people power, we can do this! Give whatever you can -- and spread the word everywhere.
