While some sections of the pro-Corbyn Labour Party have been getting worked up about whether one in three branches is an insurmountable democratic obstacle for people who think they can achieve fifty percent in a vote to remove an incumbent MP, or whether a reduced nominations threshold among MPs is a good trade for an added union input in leadership contests, something is being missed in all the noise.
Labour’s right-wingers, who normally provide the background noise like sheep bleating next to a campsite, have been peculiarly quiet.
As the SKWAWKBOX has already flagged, multiple plans are in hand among the Labour right to disrupt Labour’s conference and the events around it, with the mainstream media conveniently on hand to exploit every opportunity. There may be others that haven’t yet come to light.
The present relative right-wing silence is not peaceful. It’s ominous.
Heads up and in the game.
