This week's Tribune carries a report about the Labour Party leader, Gordon Brown's apparent ambitions to reform the Labour Party. If only. For those of us who spent two years' worth of voluntary time immediately after the last election researching opinion among members and former members, such a move can't come soon enough if we are going to have a cat in hell's chance of winning the next British General Election.
The results we published as the LabOUR Commission Interim Report. There are problems currently with the links following the transfer of the host for its website, which we hope to rectify very soon.
In the meantime, I hope every CLP/branch/affiliate will take a few moments to remind the leadership that to rebuild the Labour Party it has to be seen as ethical, solvent, democratically-run and aiming for mass membership.
The problem with any Labour Party review of its internal structures or its policies is whether the Leadership takes any notice.
I am quoted in the Tribune article as saying:
I will have an opportunity to make representations on Tuesday at the next meeting of the Labour Party's National Executive Committee.
