Exclusive: pro-Corbyn Conference delegates outnumber centrists > 3:1

SKWAWKBOX

lab-conf-signThe battle for the policy direction of the Labour Party has taken an interesting – and for most members welcome – turn.

At last year’s conference in Liverpool, right-wingers – or ‘centrists’ if you prefer the mainstream media term – organised and managed to ensure a majority of CLP (constituency Labour party) delegates. This, along with a departing – and almost certainly unlawful – ‘pre-packed rule change’ move by NEC members who had been voted out by the membership, allowed the party’s right to hinder Labour by getting two unelected additional members onto the Labour NEC (National Executive Committe).
