The Labour left has won an almost clean sweep of all elected positions to Labour’s London regional board – normally a bastion of the Progress/Labour First right – with wins for all but one of the published left slate.
Two positions went to a recount, others were won comfortably. The left slate is shown below:
The result is a triumph for left organisation, not least because of the widespread phenomenon of right candidates claiming to be pro-Corbyn in spite of being backed by the two right-wing pressure groups.
Congratulations to all the successful candidates – and to London Labour members, who should now see a far more representative behaviour at regional level and a smoother degree of cooperation with new regional director Hazel Flynn.
