Well over one in three local Labour groups have registered anger and demanded leadership respect rules and principles of party
The SKWAWKBOX revealed yesterday that almost 20% of local Labour parties (CLPs) have voted solidarity with former party leader Jeremy Corbyn and/or no confidence in Keir Starmer, David Evans, or both.
But the number of those who have registered their anger at the conduct of Starmer and his acting general secretary is far higher than the 130 or more who have passed motions, or would have if not blocked from doing so.
According to Labour insiders, more than another 100 CLPs have bypassed Labour’s ban on motions of solidarity or no confidence by writing directly to Starmer to express their anger with his actions and demand that he and Evans respect the party’s rules and principles – and members’ right to freedom of speech.
Taking the total to at least 230 – well over one in three of the 630 or so CLPs in the UK – and well on the way to a half.
