Annual conference 2021 to be in Brighton, even though last conference was also there. Seems Starmer is scared to hold it in North
Labour has confirmed that its next annual conference will be held in Brighton – even though its last conference was also held there.
By rights, after the 2020 Liverpool event was cancelled because of the pandemic, the city-wide should have hosted next year’s – but no, Labour will head for the south coast again.
It seems Starmer has little appetite for meeting northern working-class members and it’s to be made as hard as possible for them to attend – perhaps even more so because of the rule-changes Starmer will hope to push through conference to cement the doors shut against any recurrence of socialism in the party.
Either way, it’s yet another affront to working-class people in the Labour movement still appalled by the consequences of Starmer’s now-evaporated referendum obsession and his subsequent lurch even further right.
