The first of a series of direct-action protests against Labour General Secretary Iain McNicol took place a short time ago outside Labour’s Brighton Centre conference venue, as protestors held signs near the entrance to the centre, wearing t-shirts that spelled out their message:
It didn’t take long for the message to have an impact inside the hall. Johanna Baxter, who was overwhelmingly voted off the NEC (National Executive Committee) during last year’s election of CLP delegates, stood to express trembling outrage at the protest against ‘an employee of the party’. McNicol’s performance in his post was not a factor in her speech.
More protests are planned throughout the conference
