John Mann MP and the Bassetlaw Primary

19/09/2010, 11:38:32 AM

John Mann, MP for Bassetlaw, is calling for a “widening of democracy.” Or perhaps he just needs a few extra hands folding leaflets and knocking on doors in a local by-election.

Either way he is asking Bassetlaw Labour party members to vote for who he should back in the shadow cabinet elections. He is generously allowing local members the chance to pick 10 of his 19 votes. Of this 10, at least 3 must be women and 3 must be men. Still with us?

Bassetlaw Labour Party are to be balloted on how I will cast ten of my votes in the Shadow Cabinet elections.  This widening of democracy is the direction in which, in my view, the Party must go.
