Enfield North socialists lobby candidate stitch-up
Local Socialist Party members joined the lobby of the Enfield North Labour Party meeting to select the constituency's prospective parliamentary candidate on 26 October. Labour's national executive committee had undemocratically imposed a list which excluded all local left and socialist candidates.
46 delegates spoiled their ballot papers in protest. Having campaigned to get rid of the previous right-wing MP, Joan Ryan, who went on to join Change UK, local members have been denied the right to democratically replace her with a local socialist. Instead they have been saddled with another right-wing candidate.
