National Executive Committee, 16 July 2013 Print E-mail
Tuesday, 06 August 2013

The NEC welcomed Jonathan Ashworth MP, who replaces Tom Watson, to his first meeting, and thanked Tom for his contribution in various capacities over the years.

Matthew McGregor of Blue State Digital gave a presentation on digital strategy, aimed at reaching beyond members to supporters and sympathisers. Every time Labour featured in the media, people should be asked to sign up: over 700 did so after Ed Miliband’s speech on party changes. The most effective messages were real stories about real people, inspired by Ed’s vision. Labour councils were making lives better, and local parties had a wealth of knowledge. Broadening our base could raise money from tens of thousands of small donors, giving each a chance to own a piece of the campaign.

Draft model motion on Defend the link Print E-mail
Wednesday, 31 July 2013

This CLP notes that the Labour Party was founded as an alliance between trade unions and socialist organisations to provide a political voice for working people. With the current attacks on working people it is most important that the Labour Party and trades unions work effectively together - poor working conditions and low wages require more union organisation and legislation to protect workers.

Draft model motion: Keep the party Labour – No to primaries Print E-mail
Wednesday, 31 July 2013

This CLP notes that Ray Collins is reviewing the use of primaries in the selection of Labour’s candidate for London Mayor and for other elections.

This CLP notes from the experience of the US that primaries: drive up the cost of seeking selection; favour wealthy candidates; reduced the input of grassroots members; and strengthened the influence of right wing media in candidate selection.
