Question Time, Have I Got News For You, Harwich Branch Labour Party – Daily Mirror associate editor, Kevin Maguire is to add an after dinner speaking engagement in Harwich to his list of notable experiences when he is the guest speaker at a Harwich Branch Labour Party dinner on Thursday 7th February.

Kevin Maguire, who is a regular political commentator on BBC and Sky News Breakfast programmes and who writes a weekly column in the Daily Mirror, will be the guest speaker at the fund raising dinner taking place at the Tower Hotel and it is already apparent that many people intend to travel to Harwich to be part of the evening.

The dinner is being sponsored by the train drivers union, ASLEF, and a number of other unions are expected to book tables.

Ivan Henderson says

“Kevin became a good friend during my time as Harwich’s MP and it is fantastic that he has agreed to speak at our dinner. Anyone who has seen Kevin on Question Time or on Have I got News For You will know that he has a great sense of humour to go with his sharp political mind.”

Kevin agreed to speak after learning that Ivan is to be Labour’s candidate for Harwich in the forthcoming Essex County Council elections.

Kevin Maguire says

“It’s important to win every vote and fight every election. Politics isn’t a game but a struggle for fairness and decency.”
