A challenge to Corbyn: will Labour’s National Executive Committee change the rules for him?
In a new post in Ephems at http://www.barder.com/4725 I ask some of the many questions that will arise if Angela Eagle does launch a challenge to Jeremy Corbyn as leader of the Labour Party and Corbyn runs against her for re-election. Most of these questions are unanswerable, but to help in considering them I have provided some extracts from the Labour party rule-book, an out-of-date list of members of the party’s National Executive Committee which may have to provide some of the answers, a list of the MPs who nominated Corbyn last September to enable him to stand (run), and links to two articles which provide some relevant information.
If you try to follow the ins and outs of the current Labour party standoff, you may find some clarifications and signposts in the new post, “If Angela challenges Corbyn, will Labour’s National Executive Committee change the rules for him?” Please visit http://www.barder.com/4725 to read the full post and to contribute any comments on it (there, please, not in reply to this email), as well as to read the comments of others, before we are engulfed in the coming storm over the rights (if any) and wrongs of the Iraq misadventure with the publication of the Chilcot report on Wednesday.
