Labour Deputy Leadership Election 1992
#24
Noah Robinson canvassed various Trade Union members in support of James Mercer as Deputy Leader (1 hour):

On respecting Union Voices, Robinson said: "Recently we have seen the discussion of a One Member, One Vote system being proposed within the party. This doesn't have to be a factional struggle or a power play: it's crucial that this is implemented to empower our members without silencing the crucial voice Trade Unions have in representing ordinary working people across the country. Only James Mercer has spearheaded that sensible solution and compromise as proposed by the Trade Union Links Review Group, giving individual Trade Union members like you that all important vote to direct the future of our party."

On defending working people: "James has consistently proven himself to be a force that puts working people first. He has played a crucial part in the 'People at Work' group which put forward a bold but sensible agenda for working people: a skills based agenda that will allow working people to empower themselves is the kind of practical but radical policy Trade Unions and the Labour Party can fight for hand in hand to ensure every worker is empowered."

On party unity: "Trade Union members know factional squabbling achieves nothing and compromises the real change the Labour movement can make to people's lives. That's why it's important that whoever wins is able to put party unity first. Labour is a broad church and is all the better for it: instead of fighting each other as we have in the past, we must work together to hear a range of voices that will allow us to prevent the best vision for the country and bring our fight to the Tories. It's time to drop the labels of 'left' and 'right' and come together as Labour - and James Mercer is the candidate who can promise to put Labour first."

He then canvassed various Labour members in support of James Mercer (1 hour):

On giving more power to Labour members: "Labour's membership are the lifeblood in the party. Without your subs or your campaigning we would not be in the position to get into government and make radical change to improve the lives of ordinary men and women. For too long members have taken a passive role in the direction of the party - it's time that changes: One Member One Vote has been endorsed by conference again and again and again. It's time to make it a reality and give everyone in the Labour movement a crucial voice by voting for James Mercer as Deputy Leader."

On ensuring Labour continues to listen: "Labour's primary goal is to represent working people. We cannot claim to do that if we don't listen to them. Labour Listens was vital in our recent election win and allowed us to put social justice back on the agenda again. It's imperative we continue to listen and that government doesn't allow us to drift from the voices and concerns of the people across the country we were formed to represent. James Mercer will ensure that Labour Listens won't be discarded and will continue to guide the party to keep us in touch with the British public." 

On putting Labour first: "It's all well and good for Deputy Leadership candidates to flit about policies they've written on the back of a napkin that they'd like to see implemented. But we know that's not the role of Labour's Deputy Leader, and it's insulting to ignore and cast aside the crucial manifesto we were elected on. James knows that the 1992 manifesto will change lives for the better and it has the consent of the British people. His job is to not try and one-up it, but to put Labour first, to give more power to members like you and make sure Labour is a force fighting fit for the next election."
