Conference Arrangements Committee elections


It is vital that that Party Conference is taken back for grassroots members. 

Look out for an EMAIL with a link to vote, from Labour HQ.  They will be going out this week.

NB You will NOT ordinarily receive a paper ballot paper unless you have not given the party an email address.

Vote for the Grassroots Candidates!

Billy Hayes                       X

Seema Chandwani says, “In June Jeremy Corbyn’s manifesto won additional seats and votes for Labour. We now need a Labour Conference that helps increase that support. If elected I will press for greater democracy and stand up for ordinary members.

Seema Chandwani (Tottenham CLP) is a Constituency Labour Party Secretary. Seema has been nominated by 152 Constituency Labour Parties.

Billy Hayes says, “Labour’s members are key to winning the next General Election. So Labour’s Conference needs to hear their voice, back the Corbyn leadership and set a clear agenda that is ‘for the many, not the few’.

Billy Hayes (Mitcham and Morden CLP) is a former General Secretary of the Communication Workers Union. Billy has been nominated by 154 Constituency Labour Parties.

Campaigning for a Labour Victory

NB - National Consitutional Committee is elected at Conference by delegates - but CAC is a One Member One Vote ballot.


Do you Live outside the UK?

Dear Comrades,

There are a number of us who are members of the LRC, who live outside the UK. I think it would be useful to get together (virtually) to discuss the situation in Labour International and what we as LRC members might want to do together. The Left has taken control of the LICC (our CLP Executive) but we are facing apparent attempts by Labour HQ Staff to block straightforward initiatives, such as re-establishing a proper branch structure, participate in canvassing, holding people accountable for their actions and being able to run effective campaigns.
Please get in touch,

Colin O Driscoll (LI Co-Chair)

By Ian Hodson It’s great news that a mainstream political party has recognised the importance of taking positive action to raise pay. Since 2008, politicians from all parties along with many in the media, have pushed the narrative that society will somehow improve by imposing austerity and blaming minority groups for the state of the country’s finances. Sadly, many have fallen for this deception and the ‘look over there’ politics that has rose to prominence since the Conservatives returned to power in 2010. [continue...]

Rail bosses are using the recession as an excuse to attack jobs and conditions and cut back on services and essential rail works, and hike rail fares - as LEAP research suggested they would. Thousands of jobs are being threatened or have been lost. At the same time rail fat cats are raking in big profits and bonuses on the back of the most expensive fares in Europe. Make no mistake: as the recession worsens so will the attack on rail workers and rail services. [continue...]
