Vote passes 87-34
Dulwich and West Norwood constituency Labour party (CLP) in south London has this evening passed a no-confidence motion in general secretary David Evans. The members voted by 87-34 to call on the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC):
to take immediate steps to remove him from office.
Fourteen NEC members have also written to Evans – who answers to the NEC – ordering him to rebuke party leader Keir Starmer for political interference in Corbyn’s disciplinary process and publicly undermining the NEC panel that followed independent legal advice in removing Corbyn’s suspension, while other groups of members around the country have demanded the restoration of the whip to Corbyn.
A disastrous – and entirely self-inflicted – night for Starmer.
