Balance of power on conference floor
The elections for the CLP section of the National Constitutional Committee give a useful indication of the politics of the delegates being elected to conference by constituency parties. The results were:
Rose Burley (supported by Labour First) 93154 (elected)
Kevin Hepworth (supported by Labour First) 86497 (elected)
Theresa Pearce (supported by hard left) 39730
Rita Stephen 26141
The hard left Campaign Briefing newsletter reacted to the high vote amongst CLP delegates that Andy Furlong got for the Conference Arrangements Committee by describing him as "hard right", his supporters as "the forces of darkness" and insulting elected constituency delegates who voted for him by calling them a "rotten borough". This is the language being used by the laughably named "Campaign for Labour Party Democracy". Seems they don't like democracy if it elects delegates they don't agree with.
