Thread: Momentum gaining Momentum to take over Labours NEC

    Momentum gaining Momentum to take over Labours NEC

    Labour’s annual conference in Brighton approved plans to create three new NEC places to hand local parties more power and to reflect the huge increase in party membership under Corbyn.

    An extra place was also created for trade unions and shopworkers’ union Usdaw filled the slot to reflect its own growing membership.

    Party centrists calculate that Usdaw’s seat meant the NEC was finely balanced with 18 pro-Corbyn members and 18 “Corbyn-sceptic” members.

    But the three further CLP seats will ensure that the party leader has control of the party’s most important decision making body.

    Jon Lansman chair of Momentum whose executive Thameside flat worth 1.4M is the registered address for the organisation is one candidate, Momentum sent an email to supporters confirming Lansman was on its list of four nominations for the NEC, which will be narrowed down to three contenders after consultation with the Centre Left Grassroots Alliance (CLGA) next week.

    Other nominees are Yasmine Dar, a councillor in Moston, Manchester; Rachel Garnham, a local party secretary in Mid Bedfordshire and member of the National Policy Forum; and Cecile Wright, the vice chair of Momentum.

    Tom Watson must be worried having said Momentum was an entryist organisation ( one that plans to move in and take over ) that threatened to destroy Labour. A lot of other MPs will be under threat of deselection once they have control.
    The real Jeremy will be unleashed (or the real power behind the throne will emerge)

    The plot began in March and was reported by the Guardian

    Lansman issued a call to arms to Momentum supporters, saying they need to make sure the left is far better represented in key positions at all levels of the party so they have control over the levers of power when Corbyn departs and the succession is decided.

    So it’s a power grab with Unite and is aimed at what happens when Corbyn goes.

    You have to laugh, all because they were so obsessed with diversity and equaity that they just had to have a far-left candidate on their leadership ballot paper. Well it wouldn't have been fair not to would it. Now look where they are, taken over by Momentum. At least it will provide some relief for the miserable Tories, and maybe with mass defections it could even revive the LibDems, and 59-60 will be running the country.

    Venezuela surely. Petrol was one cent a litre. Could not possibly go wrong with that oil wealth.

    No you didn't. I have scrawled through the posts and you make no reference to it at all. Another left wing lie, just like Corbyns promise to give free Uni education in the last election.

    It is obviously a question that you cannot answer without admitting Socialism is a total failure everywhere it has been tried. Don't worry about trying to answer it now TBTski, reality and facts don't sit well with the loony left.
