Last week at Policy Conference delegates passed a motion calling for the withdrawal of sponsorship from MPs who did not apply Unite policy.Delegates also passed, despite opposition from the EC, an emergency motion calling for MPs to give sufficient nominations to all candidates in the Labour Party leadership contest.
The motion was primarily intended to gain support for John McDonnell from the left of the party.
It emerged yesterday that he was not going to receive the required 33 nominations so he honourably stood down in favour of Dianne Abbot.
I presume Unite will now be asking for sponsored MPs to explain why they did not do as conference had asked.
Question is how for long can I hold my breath!
