The Eastern Daily Press has revealed that Norwich Labour took £10,000 in public money designed for businesses to stay afloat during the height of the COVID pandemic. As far as we are aware it has not been repaid.

While hardworking people across the country were worried for their livelihoods, it seems Norwich Labour were taking taxpayer cash to fund their own political campaigning. Indications are none of this money was used to keep people on the payroll, instead going towards purely political operations, as they continued to sit on almost half £1million in assets.

Many people will be bitterly disappointed and upset by this selfish decision by Labour. We believe it was utterly wrong, and refused to take any public money ourselves on moral grounds. They should urgently and immediately pay back this money.

Sign our petition demanding Labour hand back the money.
