Right-wing delaying tactic unsuccessful as meeting extended to ensure business completed
Labour members in the Warwickshire constituency of Kenilworth and Southam voted on Monday night to pass a motion of no confidence in the party’s acting general secretary David Evans, despite attempts by the right to prevent the vote taking place at all.
In what was originally meant to be a one-hour meeting, a right-wing member ‘filibustered’ for more than thirty minutes on the topic of why the treasurer’s report was not on the agenda – after being told that the report had already been given at an earlier meeting because the treasurer was resigning. However, the meeting was simply extended to ensure that all scheduled business could be covered.
