First CLP meeting back in the party.
What a feckup.
Abysmally chaired, I quote my pal who was there:
Very interesting meeting. Badly managed and incoherent in large part. Malc spot on with his take on things. Windbags hogging time pontificating on what are core beliefs for any Labour member. For me it was worthwhile in order to get the measure of things as they are.
You can see why we are losing what little vote we had. One blowhard was very strong on meeting procedures (he spoke for a total of about 20 minutes) but when asked to do some organising said he hadn't any time. He was the one selling some leftwing rag, which I offended him by refusing. I said I didn't want one and his immediate reaction was to assume I already had it. I said I wasn't buying it because I don't agree with it and his eyes popped on stalks. It had never occurred to him...
Several new members present (attendance up 20 on the last meeting apparently) and I don't think many were Corbyn supporters. I think they may have realised that their time is up.
