Liverpool Riverside right-wing coup continues

As feared – and as flagged by the SKWAWKBOX early this year – the right-wing faction of Liverpool Riverside CLP (constituency Labour party) is exploiting the branch structure that was antidemocratically-imposed on the CLP to seize control of the CLP structures and its main, now delegate-based monthly meeting.

This blog has received the following report from one of the CLP’s majority of pro-Corbyn members:

Three AGMs (annual general meetings) have taken place – Kirkdale, Riverside and Greenbank.  There are two more tonight at Princes Park and Mossley Hill.

We have only two out of eighteen delegates from the left so far.  They are bussing people in that we’d never normally see at meetings. 72 at Greenbank last night, left consistently outvoted 40:30 on every position.

Central has its meeting on the 20th and St Michaels on the 21st. Unless we can rally numbers, they’re going the same way as the first three, but at least there’s a few days to work on numbers.

If you’re a Corbyn-supporting member of Liverpool Riverside Labour, your party needs you – to get to your branch meeting and to contact the others that you know to do so as well. If the attempt to rally fails, the right will reap the rewards of their anti-democratic behaviour and Liverpool Riverside will remain a disaster of ‘more of the same’ politics.

Help get the word out, whichever area you’re in.

  1. Prices Park and Mossley Hill both went our way, Excellent results. Eleven delegates out of the twelve. We also have five Unite Community Branch delegates to the CLP elected last month.
