  • 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?

    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

    Will the Tory MP who wants to charge patients to use the NHS debate me?

    Earlier this week, Channel 4’s “Dispatches” asked if we are addicted to our doctors. It highlighted the increasing pressure the NHS is under and some of the costs associated with those pressures. My opponent in Bristol North West – Tory MP Charlotte Leslie – said that, in respect of A&E and GP surgery appointments that are deemed unnecessary, that “…we do need a charge I think to just enable people to think a little bit about what their use of […]

    Free information and free broadband – business policies of the future?

    Us folk in business are a straightforward lot. Yes, we like big picture ideas and visions of the future – but we also need real-life, practical policies and plans. And with nine months to go until the general election the business community is hungry for greater clarity on what Labour business policy will actually be. The latest offering from Policy Network, Owning The Future, edited by Chuka Umunna, is rich in big ideas about Britain’s role in the global economy. […]

    Burnham: the SNP are misleading Scottish people on the NHS

    On Monday, Scottish National Party (SNP) leader Alex Salmond promised that in an independent Scotland, the NHS would be protected from cuts and privatisation. However, Andy Burnham, Shadow Secretary for Health has said that by making such pledges, Salmond is confusing the debate over independence and misleading people in Scotland: “If Salmond seriously cared about the NHS he would be explaining how he could possibly afford to fund it properly after a yes vote – with the £6 billion cuts […]

    Marginals polling finds Labour vote reaching further into Tory territory

    The latest batch of Lord Ashcroft’s polling in marginal constituencies has been published this morning. His previous marginals polls have been generally good news for Labour, showing heavy gains from both the Tories and Lib Dems, although more recently they have shown that UKIP pose a threat to to Labour’s success. With Labour having previously shown comfortable leads in most of the the marginals we hold, and many of our main target seats, Ashcroft this time concentrated on four of […]
