Longstanding Corbyn supporter and union activist Paula Barker has strolled home in the selection of Labour’s candidate to replace defector Luciana Berger as the party’s candidate for Liverpool Wavertree.
Barker, from just over the border in neighbouring Knowsley, won 191 votes at today’s ballot, with Kat Summer and Liz Grey gaining 24 and 7 respectively.
Congratulations to Ms Barker and to Wavertree on the selection of a genuine left representative.
