If we agree, you can have a say

The Scottish Mail on Sunday - - Femail -

SO, the Scot­tish Labour lead­er­ship con­test drags on – al­though, like Christmas sales and Easter eggs, it never seems to fin­ish. As you would ex­pect there is dis­quiet amongst the com­rades about how it is be­ing con­ducted. The ‘neu­tral’ tem­po­rary leader, Alex Row­ley, has of course de­clared his sup­port for one can­di­date, Richard Leonard. That is a breach of pro­to­col but Mr Row­ley re­mains in post and, cru­cially, is one of the peo­ple in charge of ver­i­fy­ing which of the new mem­bers will be en­ti­tled to vote.

The Anas Sar­war camp is nat­u­rally up in arms.

It ap­pears that when the Cor­bynistas say they are in favour of giv­ing Labour Party mem­bers a big­ger say in Labour democ­racy, that ex­tends to de­cid­ing which mem­bers get to vote.

RI­VALS: Richard Leonard and Anas Sar­war are fight­ing it out to lead Scot­tish Labour
