  • Naylabour

    any chance of publishing the actual number of votes?

  • Hamish

    Credit to LabourList for publishing the detailed figures which I have not seen elsewhere.
    (Some of us political geeks are interested in this stuff).
    To me, it is encouraging for Labour that under the curious electoral system, Anas Sarwar won the Deputy Leadership despite the majority of the Affiliates voting for Ian Davidson.
    To be blunt, Anas is tomorrow’s man, and Ian is yesterday’s man.

      I’m more than happy it’s not Davidson for depute because he has so much less than pleasant baggage. Anas has no baggage but little experience and is part of the Sarwar dynasty and I feel a bit uneasy about that whole family connections thing. IMO  it’s the Labour equivalent of the internship issue

  • Andrew

    Hamish – agreed, although what would be more interesting would a list of actual votes cast, including a tolat – any chance of seeing that published?

      Did anyone get the actual numbers?

    Mark,
    Do you know if there is to be a breakdown of votes per affiliate and CLP, as there was for the UK Leadership elections last year?

    • Hugh Pemberton

      I agree. Much more information was released to support the percentage figures in the UK leadership election: a detailed breakdown by MP/MEP, CLP, and affiliated organisation. It looks bad not to release equivalent data now – Angus Robertson is already tweeting about ‘what have they got to hide’ and
      asking if any journos have the data [http://twitter.com/MorayMP].

    Dear Andrew

    Good question

    Murphy makes unity candidate pitch as Unite prepare to endorse Findlay

    There are two interviews with Scottish Labour leader candidates in this morning’s papers. Jim Murphy launches his campaign by talking to the Daily Record (the same paper Johann Lamont did her resignation interview with last week), while Neil Findlay has a short conversation with the Morning Star. Murphy builds on the statement he made last night (“I’m applying for the job of First Minister”) by claiming he wants “to bring the country back together after the referendum.” He said: “I […]

    Brand or bland? Are these really my choices?

    Russell Brand has a book out and a great publicist. His diagnosis of our current malaise is pretty spot on. His solutions however are woolly headed at best and inconsistent at worst. But Russell Brand is being taken seriously. He’s never off Newsnight nor out of the pages of the Guardian. People are flocking to follow him in their thousands. He is Che Guevara for the scripted reality generation. The established left simply don’t know what to make of this. […]

    If politicians can’t enact the policies people actually want, the system is broken

    This week, Class released a new poll on the theme of fairness and inequality, which will nicely coincide with the debates at our conference this Saturday. Speaking of which, you should totally book a ticket for that as we’re down to the last few. Anyway, I find our polling particularly interesting (I mean, you’d hope I would) because its aim is to gauge public opinion on long-term issues, rather than responding to a given news story. Class polls provide a […]

    “I’m standing for First Minister of Scotland and I intend to win”: Jim Murphy joins Scottish Labour leadership race

    We now have three candidates for Scottish Labour leader, as Jim Murphy’s long-awaited candidacy has been confirmed. The Shadow International Development Secretary and former Scotland Secretary released a statement this evening, saying that his intention is to be Scottish Labour leader and First Minister: “I’m standing for First Minister of Scotland and I intend to win. I want to bring Scotland back together after the referendum. There is so much to be proud of in Scotland but so much we […]

    I’m not upset about Cameron’s refusal to wear a t-shirt – it’s everything else that gets me

    On Monday the news broke that David Cameron has repeatedly refused a request by Elle magazine to be photographed wearing a t-shirt. Why? Because on it, the t-shirt says “This is what a feminist looks like”. There have been a catalogue of ideas floated since about why he might not have done it – “It’s only a mag campaign” or “You shouldn’t dress up the Prime Minister”, say. But really, it’s not important that it was a request from a […]
