Local Labour parties continue to say they have no confidence in leadership
At least three more constituency Labour parties (CLPs) have voted no confidence in the national party’s senior figures in the last day or so.
Members in Eastbourne and Romsey and Southampton North have voted no confidence in Keir Starmer, while Truro and Falmouth members passed a motion of no confidence in acting general secretary David Evans – with an added call for general secretaries to be elected by Labour members. Evans’s position has still not been confirmed by the party’s annual conference as required in Labour’s rules.
The party machine continues to try to kill free speech and member democracy by suspending officers who allow motions to be debated – including Jewish officers – even though there is nothing in the latest attempts to ban motions that rules out no-confidence votes.
