Speaking Labour party conference fringe meeting this April

Last week I popped through to the Scottish Parliament to meet labour leader Johann Lamont and shadow health secretary Jackie Baillie about my awareness campaign. We had a chat about life caring for my wee mum and the life stories I receive .while I was there I was invited to speak at  the Labour party conference in April up in Inverness look forward to speaking as a son who cared for his mum and about the many hundreds of people who share their life stories .Over the last years the SNP  have been very supportive of my campaign in particular the Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon who I have great respect for ,I am also grateful to Johann and Jackie for this opportunity but this has got me thinking do you think the Conservatives or Lib Dems will every reply to my pleas to engage and talk ? I hope after all this a story about a mum a son and many other husbands ,wives ,sons ,daughters and familes
this is not a political campaign this is an awarness campaign about love ,heartbreak ,hopes struggle .and dreams respect and digintiy

last week at parliament with  Johann and Jackie
