Is this the end...?

Gordon Brown got what he wanted and railroaded through changes to Labour Party democracy. Around 84.5% voted in favour of Gordie's reforms. And no protest from the unions.

Well, as John McDonnell said: if Brown "forces his proposals through, could the last Labour party delegate leaving the Bournemouth conference hall turn off the lights please, they will be the lights of democracy".

The GMB union and Remploy workers were angry as their 12 motions opposing factory closures had been ruled out of order for debate this week. And a motion on the possible attack on Iran was removed.

This is the things to come... Democracy, Gordon Brown style.

Union Futures and Grimmer Up North have posts on RIP LP conference.
