Four more years

Tonight was the count for Diane Abbott MP's trigger ballot. She won, so will not face a full reselection process. Just for the record I voted against her (for the third time). This apparently surprised some people on the left (either they are easily surprised or I'm mellowing as I get older).

Good for her.
I suppose you can't reveal the full result, but was it close or did she win quite comfortably?

Sorry, as CLP Officers we have agreed not to publish the numbers.

Bash and Osler and the like will presumably not be bound by such niceties. Such a secret will at least test their loyalty. Try the real Luke's site. Blogged along with Wareing HERE.

Why were the left surprised at your vote Luke? As you said on this very blog only a bunch of idiots would want rid of Diane after all.
