Wimbledon CLP switches to all-member structure – showing importance of info-sharing

As the SKWAWKBOX has reported, there was drama in Streatham this evening, as in spite of fierce resistance and the best efforts of the Labour right, members voted by a tight margin to switch from a delegate-based meeting structure to all-member meetings (AMM).

Also this evening, another London CLP made the same choice – by a far more comfortable margin – under the new rule passed at Labour’s annual conference in September.

Wimbledon Labour members will all be entitled to vote at their monthly meetings, after sharing Streatham’s notes on AMM in preparation for the meeting.

Wimbledon members have worked together to achieve the result they wanted – but have also demonstrated the importance of the sharing of information among members in different constituencies.

  1. Labour have a chance of winning next time: Conservative majority 10.9%

    This gives the question of AMM added significance as does its choice of candidate.
