    WATCH: Andrew Neil lays into Tory MP over “outrageous smear” against Corbyn

    Sign up to LabourList’s morning email for everything Labour, every weekday morning. Every active member of a constituency Labour party knows things can get messy. Often after a CLP meeting, when canvassers could be discussing campaign ideas and local councillors could be swapping notes on casework, what’s actually happening is that groups of people are “plotting”.
