Since the Local Government Elections in 2014 the Dagenham & Rainham Labour Party has been gradually changing and growing. We do things a little different here – it’s an old politics, but it is a politics that works. This is a blog site dedicated to everything Dagenham & Rainham – it will include articles from members, local campaigns and narratives on major party events.
