AULC Updates

Summer is upon us and most people are away back home, on holiday in foreign lands or working and living in Aberdeen. There are various different news updates that you all may be interested in. Firstly, the Labour Club met in May to elect a new committee. I (Daniel McCroskrie) am the new chair of the club. Scott Carle is our new Vice Chair, with Jason Butcher as Treasurer and Amy Robertson as Secretary. Members were elected to various other positions and they can be viewed on our Facebook page.
Also we have a Labour leadership contest in full swing. David Miliband, Ed Miliband, Ed Balls, Andy Burnham and Dianne Abbott are all out canvassing for Labour member support and this is a very exciting time for the party. However, the work that Gordon Brown did for the party was extraordinary and he should be remembered for his firm handing of the UK economy for 11 years and the work that he displayed in getting Britain out of recession.
Conference season is also fast approaching with Labour National Conference in Manchester being held at the end of September and the always enjoyable Scottish Labour Conference in Oban which takes place at the end of October.
The club will be out in full force at Fresher's Week and the year ahead is looking positive!
