Southport Labour activist celebrates 80th birthday meeting the g

Bill Esterson, with Mo Langley,
 
A Southport octogenerian got the chance to rub shoulders with the great and the good as she celebrated her 80th birthday in Parliament.
 
Muriel Langley was a guest of Sefton Central Labour MP Bill Esterson in the Palace of Westminster.
 
She has been a Labour Party activist for over 20 years and is a regular leaflet deliverer for the party in Southport.
 
And she is a regular volunteer in the office of Bill Esterson.
 
Staff at the Labour office presented Muriel with tickets to Westminster to mark Muriel's 80th birthday.
 
While in the capital, Muriel had the chance to meet some of Labour's big names including Dennis Skinner and Shadow Education Secretary Stephen Twigg, as well as renowned music journalist Paul Gambaccini, before having lunch on the House of Commons terrace.
 
Bill said: "It was a real pleasure having Muriel come down to Parliament for the day.
 
"She is a key member of the Labour Action Team in Sefton and we wanted to reward her years of dedication by treating her to a trip to Westminster.
 
"The team all chipped in to pay for her fare and she came down and had a great day.
 
"It was a small thank you for all the work she does for the people of Sefton."
 
Muriel said she had a great day in Parliament.
 
She said: "It was a fabulous day. Not only did I get to have lunch and afternoon tea on the terrace, but I got to meet some Labour Party heroes like Dennis Skinner.
 
"It was also great to see what goes on behind the scenes at Westminster and have a look at some of the parts of the Houses of Parliament that you don't normally get to see.
 
"I really enjoyed myself and I look forward to my 90th!"
