  • 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].

    Good question

    Did David Cameron use his speech on steps of Downing St to attack Labour with “totally made up figures”?

    After visiting the Queen at noon today to confirm the dissolution of Parliament, David Cameron made an election campaign speech on the steps of 10 Downing Street, where he accused Labour of planning to raise taxes for working families by £3,000. However, Labour have accused Cameron of using invented statistics for his claim. Shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury Chris Leslie responded to his comments by saying: “These are totally made up figures from a desperate David Cameron who has […]

    John McDonnell says Labour backbenchers would force Miliband to abandon austerity

    John McDonnell, MP for Hayes and Harlington, has warned that if Labour are the largest party in May, they may have to change some of their current economic policies because of opposition from MPs. In an interview with the New Statesman, McDonnell, who is also Chair of the Socialist Campaign Group, the Labour Representation Committee and the Public Services Not Private Profit Group, said “The first row will be around austerity unless we get this right … I think it […]

    Cameron could use Fixed Term Parliaments Act to cling to power

    Labour are seeking advice to formulate a plan to remove David Cameron from office if he attempts to cling on without a majority in May. There are concerns that if the election result sees Labour as the second largest party, but able to command a majority with the informal support of other parties, Cameron will claim that he has not lost the election. The Tory leader could then stay on as Prime Minister until an opposition can ‘prove’ they have […]

    Tory Minister puts photo of prominent campaigner against Tory welfare cuts on her election leaflet

    Tory Minister Esther McVey is facing a real struggle to hold onto her marginal seat Wirral West (she has a majority of only just over two thousands), but her latest leaflet includes a bizarre addition – a photo of someone who has campaigned powerfully and prominently against her government. After 5 yrs campaigning against Cons welfare cuts, imagine my surprise to see myself on their election leaflet pic.twitter.com/wkzP6Nlqwl — BendyGirl (@BendyGirl) March 30, 2015 Suffice to say Franklin is probably […]
