Akehurst on Tour Part 3
Just got back from Camden Town Hall where I debated Trident replacement vs. CND at the GC AGM of Holborn & St Pancras CLP, my old stamping ground in the '90s when I was Frank Dobson's Agent.
Unlike Compass' one-sided non- debate tonight on Trident, Holborn & St Pancras CLP held a real debate with contributions from the floor making intelligent, well-informed points on both sides.
They also took a vote - which I'm sorry to say my side of the argument lost 32-10 - though that was 10 more votes than I had predicted... Most of the 10 on my side seemed to be younger members.
The CLP seemed in good health - as the voting figures show there were 42 delegates there - representing nearly 900 members with over 130 in one ward - and lots of new people who hadn't been around a decade ago when I was last there.
