Something sensible in Tribune

... for once. A really good article by thoughtful Wrexham MP Ian Lucas about why Brown should make more use of the PLP in policy development and as a policy sounding board - so that Labour MPs are consulted early in the policy process through the PLP Departmental Committees rather than presented with legislative faits acomplis. Better policies, fewer rebellions. Unfortunately Tribune has yet to fully enter the digital age so you'll have to buy a copy.

Yes, excellent idea. I am of the opinion that we could avoid the vast bulk of our splits with greater consultation and policy comprimise throughout the party. Avoiding splits is an important element of electability.

"Unfortunately Tribune has yet to fully enter the digital age so you'll have to buy a copy."

You can get some stories online, understandably just a few, however.

Does Gordon's article not count as "sensible", Luke ?

Yes but hardly needed pointing out.
