労働党会議が始まると、リーダーシップのルールを破って傷ついたキール・スターマー
労働組合が撤退を余儀なくされた後、代表団は骨抜きにされたシェイクアップを支持することになった–副アンジェラ・レイナーとの亀裂の中で

A badly bruised キールスターマー will ask the Labour conference リーダーシップルールの骨抜きにされたシェイクアップを支援する, after an embarrassing defeat in his bid to scrap the voting system that elected ジェレミー・コービン.

5日間のイベントは、労働党の指導者にとって最悪のスタートを切った。, 彼は彼の権威をへこませ、彼自身の代理人との亀裂を作成したUターンに強制されました, アンジェラ・レイナー.

労働組合が変更に反対した後–それは党が選挙人団システムに戻るのを見たであろう, メンバーからMPへの権力の受け渡し–日曜日にブライトンの代表者に一連の希薄な提案が提出されます.

The “one member, one vote” system will survive, but candidates will now need the backing of 20 per cent of MPs to reach the ballot that goes to members, making a left-wing challenge far more difficult.

Under Mr Corbyn’s leadership, the threshold was lowered to 10 per cent – but even 20 per cent represents another defeat for Sir Keir, who had pushed for 25 パーセント.

Strikingly, Ms Rayner refused to endorse the proposed change ahead of the morning meeting of the ruling national executive committee (NEC), as did the Scottish Labour leader, Anas Sarwar.

The deputy leader appeared to be furious that her own major announcement to bolster workers’ rights had been eclipsed by yet more Labour infighting over party rules.

Mish Rahman, a Momentum-backed member of the NEC, accused Sir Keir of trying to “destroy the right of ordinary people to shape the future of the party” by handing power to “the Westminster elite”.

“If the 20 per cent threshold applied to the 2020 leadership election, it would have been a contest between Sir Keir Starmer QC and Sir Keir Starmer QC," 彼は言った.

The leader’s pick as party general secretary also suffered a bumpy ride in the conference hall, as he was heckled while discussing why people joined Labour.

When David Evans told delegates: “Everybody remembers why they joined Labour,” before asking: “What was it for you?」, there were shouts of “Oh, ジェレミー・コービン!」

A left-wing attempt to oust Mr Evans failed when his appointment was endorsed, but only by 59 per cent of votes to 41 パーセント.

Sir Keir attempted to put a brave face on his previous setback, after his deal with the unions was endorsed by 22 に投票する 12 at the NEC meeting.

The package will also abolish the policy of allowing “registered supporters” to vote in leadership elections for a one-off fee, and will require anyone wishing to vote to have been a member of the party for six months.

And the percentage of local party members whose backing is needed to trigger a reselection battle for an MP will rise from one-third to 50 パーセント.

“I’m very pleased these party reforms have got the backing of our NEC,” Sir Keir said.

“These proposals put us in a better position to win the next general election, and I hope constituency and trade-union delegates will support them when they come to conference floor.”

There is certain to be an anguished inquest into why the leader chose to fight an internal battle ahead of what is regarded as a make-or-break conference – the first he has addressed as party leader.

Many are mystified as to why, knowing he needed the unions’ support, he failed to roll the pitch for the changes instead of suddenly unveiling them less than a week ago.

Sir Keir will hope to recover enough to be able to use the conference to convince the public that Labour has the answers to the cost-of-living crisis that threatens to turn the coming months into another winter of discontent.

But other flashpoints loom, with more fighting likely to kick off at any hint that the leadership might back away from Mr Corbyn’s commitment to faster curbs on 炭素排出量, and on the subject of trans rights, after Canterbury MP Rosie Duffield said she feared for her safety if she were to travel to Brighton for the conference.

And the former leader – still suspended from sitting as a Labour MP – will stalk the conference fringe with popular speaking slots at the nearby The World Transformed event.
