The left Grassroots Alliance slate for next year's elections for the constituency section of Labour's NEC is becoming a bit clearer, following Saturday's AGM of the LRC (Labour Representation Committee). This picked two candidates, incumbent NEC member Christine Shawcroft and blogger Susan Press (http://grimmerupnorth.blogspot.com) so my guess is that the full line-up is Shawcroft, Press, Ken Livingstone, Pete Willsman, Peter Kenyon and Ann Black.
Reading between the lines of this post by Peter Kenyon (http://petergkenyon.typepad.com/peterkenyon/2009/11/compass-building-a-new-political-movement.html) I guess soft left grouping Compass, who also had their AGM on Saturday, have other priorities than elections within the Labour Party.
Personally I spent Saturday at the London Labour Party's General Election briefing for agents. Judging by the amount of campaigning that was reported to be going on or planned around London, and the number of constituencies with full-time staff (far more than when I was a full-timer in 1997) the seat-by-seat battle at the next election may give the Tories some unpleasant surprises.
