Zetetic’s telling porkies. His talk of a rift in the Labour Party is crap. He hasn’t got a clue about what went on the Party conference – the idea that there should be a membership-wide vote on the leadership was voted down at the conference in November by a large majority of the 600-700 delegates present.
Here’s the wording of the amendment (rule 297A (d) is the caucus + members + affiliate vote):
(e) “The endorsement process in February 2013 will take place under new rule 297A (d) without the caucus trigger”.LOST
I have no idea whether or not Zetetic is or has been a member of the Labour Party, or whether he was at the conference. If he is and he was, he must have been out for a coffee when the issue of the membership-wide vote on the leadership was put to the conference. He’s got it totally wrong about what Labour members wanted.
I don’t think Zetetic and Eddie and all the other prophets of gloom on this site have a clue about what’s going on in the Labour Party – or the electorate for that matter.
I had a wonderful day at Ratana today, at the service for the Prophet’s birthday in the Temepara. David Shearer was there too. There was a shift in the air, and it wasn’t away from Labour. He’ll get 100% endorsement from the caucus too, I’ll bet.
