Currently the Labour Party has too many enemies within. Who you view as an enemy may depend on your political leanings even if you are a member of the Labour Party.
There have been a couple of councillor resignations from the Labour Party since Mr Corbyn was re-elected Saturday, one defecting to the Tory Party which says it all about her.
But here is an enemy within who we have written about previously.
Thanks to Georgie for sharing this from Mr Luke Akehurst and his vile Labour First group which really needs re-naming the me, me, me, my way or the highway group.
Tuesday’s Key Votes
The key debate on Tuesday is over the package of rule changes proposed by the National Executive Committee (NEC), which Labour First encourages delegates to vote in favour of. These rule changes are a crucial part of the difficult process of moving the party forwards following the leadership contest.
Delegates need to make sure they are in the hall right at the start of the conference session at 9.30am to oppose any attempt by the Hard Left to 'reference back' the Conference Arrangements Committee (CAC) report. The Hard Left want to pick apart the package of rule changes for partisan reasons and are trying to overturn the CAC decision to take the package as a whole.
The package is exactly that - a finely balanced set of proposed rule changes that give something for everyone on the NEC. For the first time ever Scotland and Wales will get guaranteed voting representation on the NEC. There will be policy-making powers for Women's Conference and new bursaries to support more working class candidates. Labour in local government will benefit from the ending of all male representation in multi-member council wards and council cabinets will in future have to reflect the diversity of their electorates. Other rule changes will prevent Labour councils from coming under pressure to set illegal budgets.
Delegates need to stay in the hall right to the end of the session (just before lunch) to vote in favour of this NEC package of reforms. They should also follow the NEC recommendations when voting on other rule changes proposed by CLPs.
Vote Maggie Cosin for NCC
Maggie Cosin has been a party member for five decades and has served on the National Constitutional Committee (NCC) for the last 9 years. She is seeking re-election and Labour First encourages all delegates to support her.
The NCC is the party's quasi-judicial committee that handles the most complex party disciplinary cases and constitutional issues. Maggie knows that the rules and procedures of the party must be properly enforced in an even-handed and transparent way. She has always dealt with the issues that come before the committee with respect for other members at the heart of her approach.
As an active party member on the South East Regional Board, Maggie has previously held office at branch and constituency level and has served as a Labour Councillor for a total of 25 years. She is a member of the GMB and worked professionally for a number of unions dealing with conflict resolution in the workplace.
We need this wealth of experience on the NCC - vote for Maggie Cosin on Tuesday between 9am and 4pm at the balloting area in the exhibition hall.
Support Composite 8 - Balanced Energy Policy
The Tory Government has scrapped the Department for Climate Change, failed to ratify the 2015 Paris Agreement and prevaricated on crucial decisions to ensure the stability of our energy supply.
We need a balanced energy policy, including nuclear power as well as renewables, gas and carbon storage and capture, to ensure that the UK has energy security and continues to deliver on its climate change objectives but also to protect the jobs of GMB members in key technological sectors such as nuclear power.
Labour First encourages all delegates to support composite 8 which will be debated on Tuesday.
Secretary, Labour Firsto
[Some have been trying to fix conference. Mr Akehurst is one. With too many Corbyn supporters currently suspended from the party due to a silly ill-timed purged the plotters comtinue on their merry way spitting on our democracy as they go. They really need to move on or be removed]
