Conference - Tuesday

As predicted yesterday, I just missed election to the NPF. The London region results (to nearest half thousand) were:

Nicky Gavron 25,000 elected
Alon Or-Bach 18,000 elected
Lisa Homan 17,000 elected
Joanne Milligan 17,000 elected
Luke Akehurst 15,000
Mike Katz 10,000
Laura Bruni 8,000
Francis Prideaux 7,500
Lorraine Monk 4,000
Chris Roberts 3,000

The politics of this in very broad terms are that Nicky and Alon are both sort-of soft left, whilst Laura, Francis and Lorraine were on the Grassroots Alliance slate.

so is it a defeat for the hard left? The soft left candidates did well, but the hard left was towards the bottom

Is Chris Roberts the socially inept Leader of Greenwich Council by any chance?

Luke, unlucky - but coming so close is still a pretty damn good result.

Chris Paul, do I get this right: you are complaining that Conference is unrepresentatively right wing?

so to clarify...the soft left did well and the hard-right of the labour party were defeated?

i see you're painting it as a defeat for the CLGA but they backed Alon, although he wanted it kept off the Yellow Pages.

hope you're not too disappointed. clearly the hard-right slate still has problems with not being able to co-ordinate its slate and prevent those of similar politics challenging it...
