Monday is manifesto day for Labour – Clause V meeting signs off final text of party’s manifesto

Labour’s National Executive Committee have this afternoon held their traditional Clause V meeting on the party’s manifesto. The meeting took just over an hour, and by all accounts was a friendly, positive and upbeat affair. Some changes were made to the manifesto at the meeting – but don’t expect to see any copies leaking out, they were all numbered and collected back in at the end of the meeting.

It’s expected to be called “A better plan for Britain’s future”. No shocks there then.


The manifesto will be launched on Monday, with the Tory launch delayed until Tuesday. Labour sources claim that they had been keen to go head to head with the Tory launch, but the Tories pushed their back until Tuesday. Rumours abound that’s because (unlike the Labour manifesto) the Tory one isn’t done yet…

Everything Labour.
Every weekday morning.
