The clock is ticking

Eyebrows have been raised at the news that Labour won't even decide the process for selecting a candidate for Wavertree or Sefton Central until the 17th December, meaning that Labour still won't have a candidate until well in to the New Year - possibly as late as February.

OK so Gordon has until June to hold an election, but with increasing rumours of an election being called in March they could be said to be cutting it a bit fine.

Of course, conspiracy theorists within Labour are starting to suspect another motive. The closer the selection process is left before the election, the easier it is to impose a candidate from London on the local party.

That's democracy - Labour style.

The democratic process in the Labour party is none of your Fib Dem business.

The lack of democratic process in the Liebour party is clearly a matter of legitimate public interest.
