This was just emailed to the entire Labour supporters email list. There is something quite touching, a little sad perhaps, about Ed asking for mates:
When I became Leader of the Labour Party a year ago, I said that we had to be a party that looked outwards, not just inwards.
Over the last 12 months, I’ve been working hard to live up to that, by listening and learning from people all over our country.
I’ve been talking to people in shops, factories, High Streets – and I’ve been using social media too.
Now, Google have invited me to have a profile on Google+ and I want to invite you to join me.
You already use Gmail, so the next step to keeping in touch using Google+ is easy – just add me to your circles.
If you’re not signed up yet, I have 150 invites to share and I’ll be giving them to people who respond to this email. Click here for an invite.
Leader of the Labour Party
A nice bit of free advertising for Google.
It seems it’s not just the Tories that they have under the thumb…
