Our task now is to unite behind Ed Miliband – my email to members and supporters

Dear friend,

I hope you will join me in congratulating Ed Miliband on being elected as the new leader of the Labour Party.

Our task now is to unite behind Ed Miliband, expose the unfair and economically reckless policies of the Tory-Liberal coalition and set out a radical and credible Labour alternative to win back the trust and support of the voters.

I want to thank the thousands of party and union members who voted for me and supported my campaign. And I’m particularly grateful to everybody who made a donation or volunteered to work on my campaign – from phoning members to leafleting at hustings. I can’t tell you how much that support has meant to me.

I’m proud that our campaign put policy issues like housing and jobs centre stage, that we took the fight to the coalition on school building cuts, Royal Mail privatisation and their dangerous economic policies and that we continued to pick up support from MPs and members even over this final week.

We need to defeat this coalition and win again for the millions of people who need a Labour government to stand up for them.

I’ll campaign just as hard to bring that about and I’m sure you will too.

Very best wishes and thanks again,

Ed ‬ ‪ ‬

    Now is the time to unite behind Ed Miliband, I want to congratulate Ed Balls on an excellent campaign and hope to see more of you tackling this coalition and playing a lead role setting out the alternative.

    Hi Ed
    I sincerely hope that you are going to stand for the Shadow Cabinet as you would make a wonderful Shadow Chancellor, you so get the mood of the party and the public in general.
    I wish you all the best in whatever you decide to do in the future, but talent like yours must not be wasted we need you in the front line of the Labour Party.
    Best Wishes.
    Heather
