For probably the first time, the right wing slate for the six constituency places on Labour’s National Executive Committee, put together by Progress and Labour First, is getting far more nominations from Constituency Labour Parties (CLPs) than almost all the nominees on the Centre-left Grassroots Alliance (CLGA) slate.
This is not because CLPs have shifted to the right. All the evidence is of the hundreds of thousands of new members being predominantly left-wing. But the Labour right, with its millionaire funding, is organising with more energy than the left. And there is other evidence on the same lines. The left has to step up a gear, on this and many other issues.
The deadline for CLP nominations is 24 June, and details of the CLGA slate are at www.clpd.org.uk.
