Hackney North Trigger Ballot

I spent yesterday evening as CLP Observer to ensure the rules were stuck to at branch meetings voting on whether to reselect Diane Abbott MP or trigger a full reselection process.

It isn't appropriate to reveal the individual branch results, but after some well-attended and lively meetings, and with 7 of the 10 branches having met last night, Diane has nothing to worry about - Dave Osler's predictions of a close result haven't been fulfilled.

in those occasions, what does "well-attended" mean?
around 20 members per ward?

Yes. Best attended one was 20 including 2 councillors who could not vote as they lived in other wards and 1 who could not vote as has under 6 months membership. This = over 1/4 of the members in the ward concerned.
