Labour Emergency Selection Rules Bad News For Jez

Labour’s NEC has imposed emergency candidate selection procedures:

  • Sitting Labour MPs will be automatically re-selected if they wish to stand again. So all the moderates can stand…
  • Any vacant seats will be advertised this Friday (21st) on Labour’s website and applications will close this Sunday (23rd).
  • Candidates will then be selected directly by NEC panels and Regional Board members. No chance for the Corbynistas to remake the party in their image.

A Labour internal communication says:

“It is with the greatest regret that local party members will not be able to select parliamentary candidates…”

Plenty of moderate MPs won’t be regretting that at all…

Jacob Rees Mogg writes

“If I had to choose between no deal and Mrs May’s original accord, I would have no hesitation of opting for no-deal Brexit but even Mrs May’s deal would be better than not leaving at all.”
