Grassroots – The Pink Bus

Emma Reynolds, Labour’s Shadow Communities Minister and Louise Baldock, Labour’s candidate for Stockton South visited the Asda store in Thornaby on Tees earlier today on the next leg of their ‘Woman to Woman’ tour. During their visit they met with shoppers and spoke with staff members in the store before heading to Redcar to continue campaigning. The Pink Bus is the very visible face of the ‘Woman to Woman’ campaign and comes ahead of the General Election in May. The idea of this tour was developed by the Labour Deputy Leader Harriet Harman as a way of connecting the party with women who did not vote in the last General Election.
