On the Hustings

A co-conspirator writes

On Sunday in Oxford Gordon referred to ‘party reforms’ to make Labour a 21st Century party. The few proposals he listed were all pretty dull.

I also managed to catch two party officials ‘helping a questioner’ with the question they had submitted for gordon to ask. She turned out to be a young NEC member, and when it got around to her she asked about making anti retroviral drugs more widely available to HIV/aids sufferers in Africa.

They were cagey when I pointed out I had seen them talking to her, going over the written question and they seeing her write another question on the back of the paper.

It really does beggar belief, he can’t lose because there are no votes, yet the Stalinist still rigs the questions to make himself look good. There are grim days coming..

Quote of the Day

Andrea Leadsom told BBC Radio 4’s Today

“He’s made his views on Brexit on the record, and the problem with that of course is that the chair’s impartiality is absolutely essential. … He’s made his views known on Brexit… it’s a matter for him but nevertheless it’s a challenge and all colleagues need to form their own view of that.”
