Skwawkbox reported on Wednesday that left-winger Emine Ibrahim had been elected as chair of the NCC (National Constitutional Committee) – still Labour’s ultimate disciplinary body until Keir Starmer and sidekick David Evans get their act together on their new ‘independent’ (ie Evans-selected) disciplinary board, despite the right’s attempts to gerrymander the result by suspending newly-elected left-winger Rheian Davies.
Ms Ibrahim was elected unopposed.
But Skwawkbox can also reveal that right-winger and arch Corbyn critic Peter Mason was overwhelmingly rejected in his bid to become the committee’s deputy chair. While the left’s wafer-thin majority on the committee was rendered rocky by Ms Davies’s suspension, even some fellow right-wingers couldn’t bring themselves to vote for Mason.
He was trounced by 13 votes to 5, according to Labour insiders.
The Labour party has rapidly become a husk under Keir Starmer of the great party it until so recently was – but even now there can still be the odd glimmer of light.
