Operation Flight, as part of the Campaign for a Labour Majority, was a national campaign day in nine of the 106-target seats where the incumbent Conservative or Liberal Democrat member of parliament is stepping down. As the incumbent flies off, Progress flies in.
On Saturday 10 January, both a Progress strategy board representative and a member of staff, plus as many volunteers as we could muster, were be in each of these nine seats. We invited every Labour member, affiliated union member, supporter, and anyone else who wants to get this terrible government out, to come and join us.
