Who's backing Cruddas?
Well at my GC last night the speeches in favour of Jon came from:
this MP: http://www.dianeabbott.org.uk/, who is a prominent member of this organisation: http://www.poptel.org.uk/scgn/
a member of the editorial board of this magazine: http://www.labourleftbriefing.org.uk/
supporters of this organisation: http://home.freeuk.com/clpd/ and maybe this one: http://www.socialistaction.org.uk/ (though it's a bit secretive about whether it actually exists)
a comrade who helps write this blog: http://labourleftforum.blogspot.com/
and one who contributes to this website: http://www.workersliberty.org.uk/
I'm sure I'll be accused of sectarianism (unlike one of the above who used 95% of their 3 minute GC speech to attack another candidate in highly personalised terms) but either these comrades are muppets who have been conned into backing Cruddas and will get nothing in return, or they are expecting him to deliver part of their agenda. You can read their websites to check out what their agenda is. Of course, he can't vet his supporters, but one has to ask what's really going on.
