Shhhh, Don’t Mention the Leadership

Every newspaper, broadcaster, blogger and pub bore is discussing the Labour leadership. Every Labour party hack at their conference this week is doing the same in the bars. The conference itself won’t be discussing the matter. The Conference Arrangements Committee (CAC) has ruled out of order 17 motions from CLPs on the leadership election. Over at LabourHome they say rightly “If this decision stands, Labour Conference will be the only place in the UK where the issue of the leadership is NOT being discussed”.
