Election Geeks lose out
Surprisingly the conference supported the proposed change to effectively reduce the number of candidates in future leadership elections. I don't agree with the argument that we should reduce the number to fit comfortably into the Newsnight studios. However, the decision was made based upon that argument.
It is rumoured that an MP can sign more than one nomination paper. Therefore a proper election giving the members a proper choice can still occur. Candidates should be able to get the 200 members' signatures themselves.
