There’s been a lot of guff from the Labour Party about coalition proposals to make our Parliamentary boundaries fairer and more equal, and it’s interesting to compare their holier-than-thou attitude with the actual rules for their leadership contest taking place at the moment.
Jonathan Sheppard from the excellent Tory Radio posed an interesting question on Twitter earlier today – how many votes could a Labour activist theoretically get in the Labour leadership election?
So, in theory, a Labour MP or MEP who joined every affiliate and every Union would be entitled to a whopping 33 legitimate leadership votes.
It does seem in the Labour Party that all members are equal, but some are more equal than others. Democracy in action, eh?
