The Labour NEC have decided to block anyone who's joined the LP in the last two weeks from voting in the upcoming leadership election. Despite the fact that the recruiting campaign and the current LP website specifically promises that as a new member you'd get a vote in any leadership election. Ooops.

That's about 130,000 people blocked and probably permanently disengaged from the party before they've even got going. Ooops.

But you can pay £25 as a "supporter" and get a vote. Nicely priced to keep the poorest from getting a say (last September it was £3). Ooops.

Democracy, Labour 2016 style. Ooops.


Two of my colleagues were signing up to vote against Corbyn. They'll be pleased then.
