Left Unity’s one-member-one-vote? 36/8,000th of a mandate:

  • Your comment is awaiting moderation.
  • In an organisation with 8,000 supporters, the most popular leader secures 71 votes? And someone secures a place on the leadership body with just 36 votes?
  • I am far from convinced that this ‘elected’ leadership is representative of those 8,000 supporters.
  • I personally want trade union affiliation and do not believe that these ten comrades in Left Unity’s leadership have won any mandate to deny me my right to put the case for trade union affiliation, which I believe I could win if there is a serious debate.
  • I also still have no idea what “one member one vote” means for Left Unity’s leadership, who are pretending it is self-explanatory when nothing could be further from the truth. There are several possibilities, and they are contradictory.
  • There is no authoritative statement made that puts sectarians back in their box. That means that Left Unity is becoming associated with those who want more, not less, divisions on the left!
  • I know not everyone at the meeting is guilty of that, but very many are and nothing is being done to rein them in. For all I know of Left Unity’s elected leadership, the sectarians may dominate the leadership. If so, we need a new leadership.
