Reports from the Scottish Labour Party conference suggest a growing recognition on the part of the new Labour Leadership that we need to work together better. I wondered if I was missing something. So I have been back on the Labour Party Membersnet to check Partnership in Power. I found this newsletter, and a questionnaire.
I wonder how many branch secretaries could put their hands up and honestly say they were aware of this new publication? Ditto CLP secretaries? Ditto NPF members? Ditto NEC members? Ditto Cabinet members?
Then there is the questionnaire....With elections on in many parts of the country....dialogue is unlikely to resume until after 1 May. The challenge will be to get the logistics in place to give members a real say, not a token - Albanian style - ballot on a Manifesto when it is too late to change anything.
