Labour First chair Keith Dibble has just lost his bid for re-election to Labour’s south-east board at the party’s south-east regional conference.
The news does not bode well for Dibble’s hopes – or those of his remaining Labour First/Progress slate members – of election to Labour’s National Constitutional Committee (NCC) in the NCC ballot that is about to open.
This time last year, Labour First’s Luke Akehurst was crowing about Dibble being able to hold onto his position:
Significant as Unite were trying to oust Keith Dibble and Ann Black as Chair & VC of SE Labour. They failed. https://t.co/s4NNHmkT04

Akehurst does not appear to have tweeted congratulations to Unite up to the time of publication, although the vote not to reinstall Mr Dibble will have involved CLP members and unions together.
