Southend West CLP nominates

Southend West Constituency Labour Party met last night to decide who it would nominate for the leadership. It was a comradely conversation, and when I said that whatever the result we had to get behind the new leader this was received well and accepted by all.

I was championing Liz Kendall, and was politely listened to. She had some support, but not enough to win a majority. Southend West, after a vote, has decided to nominate Yvette Cooper.

We also decided to nominate Caroline Flint for the deputy leadership, and I spoke up for her too (so I can claim a 50% success rate).

Each nomination went to three rounds, which indicates the closeness and quality in the contest.
