Jeremy Corbyn wins Northern & Leith supporting nomination

86 local Labour Party members met on 4 August to consider whether to make a supporting nomination in the Labour Leadership contest. Following a debate characterised by passionate but friendly contributions, the result was as follows:
  • Jeremy Corbyn 50
  • Owen Smith 30
  • Abstentions 4
The result is not binding on our 540 eligible members who will vote for the candidate of their choice when the formal ballot begins w/b 22 August.
Many thanks to everyone who attended - see you all again soon or at our September meetings. Thanks too, to the staff at the Norton Conference Centre - great venue
