National Executive Committee, 19 July 2011 Print E-mail
Monday, 01 August 2011
Tuesday 19 July was a dramatic day in parliament, with Tom Watson questioning the Murdochs and Keith Vaz chairing interviews with senior police officers.  Across the committee corridor the NEC meeting was quieter but equally tense as we chose Iain McNicol for Labour’s next general secretary, the sixth appointment in 11 years, after Ray Collins’ elevation to the Lords.

National Executive Committee, 17 May 2011 Print E-mail
Monday, 13 June 2011
After the Scottish election defeat, general secretary Ray Collins said that Jim Murphy MP and Sarah Boyack MSP would chair a review of Labour in Scotland, bringing together all stakeholders to develop a new organisational and political framework.  Terms of reference had been agreed with the Scottish executive committee and were endorsed by the NEC.  I and others expressed concern that members only heard about the review through the media, and after Ed Miliband announced it in London.  The process had to be led and owned by the Scottish grassroots, and I am grateful to all who sent me feedback on the election and its aftermath, either directly or through their vice-chair Victoria Jamieson.

The Chair Peter Hain welcomed members to Labour Wales, where student fees remain low and the NHS is safe from privatisation, and expressed solidarity with the public service unions fighting for justice.  He reported that Refounding Labour had received 125 submissions from constituencies, 35 from affiliates and groups, and 2,660 individual contributions through the website.  The party’s reaction to the splits and losses of the 1980s may have prevented blood on the conference floor, but at the cost of over-centralisation and shutting out the grassroots.  The task now was to re-establish the original inclusive, interactive vision.  An audit trail should let members see what happens to their views, currently disappearing without trace, and genuine differences should again be debated at conference.
