Left makes significant gains in Labour’s other internal party elections

by Newsdesk.

Yesterday, the Left made significant gains in the election for local party representatives on Labour’s national policy forum (NPF), the roughly 200 strong body responsible for preparing the party’s rolling policy programme which is prepared for approval by the party’s conference. The Left is now the largest grouping amongst constituency representatives (having made 9net gains) with 27 successful candidates including […]

Peter Willsman’s report from Labour’s special May executive

by Peter Willsman.

National Executive Committee, 13 May 2015 This special executive was called to consider the arrangements for Labour’s leadership and deputy-leadership elections. The meeting was v ery comradely and there was a serious intent to reach a consensus. Harriet Harman paid tribute to Ed Miliband for his unstinting commitment to our cause and to his dedicated leadership over […]

Support Katy Clark and Jon Lansman for the Conference Arrangements Committee

by Peter Willsman.

Although most Labour Party members are now focused mainly on working for a Labour victory in the general election, there are some important internal party elections shortly after 7 May. Since the closing date for nominations in those elections is 10 June and many constituency parties won’t even have a cycle of meetings before that date, many […]

Ann Black’s report from Labour’s July executive

by Ann Black.

National Executive Committee, 22 July 2014 NEC meetings always start with tributes to members who have died, and in July these included Bob Jones, the police and crime commissioner for the West Midlands, who was just 59.  The by-election for the PCC was triggered, disrespectfully, even before his funeral, and would be held on 21 August.  […]

There’s a smell of roses at Labour headquarters

by Jon Lansman.

Never let it be said that Left Futures never has a good word for Labour headquarters and staff in the Leader’s office. Today, we have particular reason to praise their judgement. At today’s meeting of Labour’s national executive committee, two rule changes proposed by CLPs having been promoted by the Campaign for Labour Party Democracy, have been endorsed […]

Blair’s covert party machine and culture of manipulation to be exposed in new book

by Jon Lansman.

Last year a book was published – Power Trip A Decade of Policy, Plots and Spin which promised to reveal “the personal feuds, political plots, and media manipulation which lay at New Labour’s core“. It would be, promised its publishers, “a fascinating, funny, and at times shocking account of how government really works“. At the end […]

Bogus consultation and stage management. So much for transparency

by Peter Willsman.

In the furore over Collins, there have been three main areas of concern. There is concern over the actual proposals and their implications – those have been addressed on this site by Jon Lansman. I would like to address the second and third of these areas of concern – the way the proposals are being […]

Was your constituency vote cast at conference without interference? Check the record

by Jon Lansman.

Readers will be aware from previous reports that there is serious concern about the validity of the result of internal party elections held at this year’s Labour conference in Brighton. In the closest fought election for the party conference arrangements committee for many years, two opposition whips were declared elected as representatives of constituency party members […]

On illegitimate interference by party staff into our internal elections

by Peter Willsman.

As Jon Lansman previously reported here, there is clear evidence that full time Labour party officials in most of the country (including Yorkshire, the East Midlands and the eastern region, Scotland and the South West) interfered in the elections to the conference arrangements committee (CAC) and national constitutional committee (NCC) at Labour’s conference in Brighton. […]

Labour conference delegates: appeal for information

by Jon Lansman.

Those who have read the Yellow Pages delegates’ briefing (produced each day at Labour conference and available here) will have read that the oversight of Labour’s conference arrangements committee (CAC) elections has this year fallen short of the “open, transparent and trusted” political practice which Ed Miliband and Iain McNicol rightly expect. Unlike in Falkirk, there is incontrovertible evidence of misconduct and machine […]
