The current arrangements were a sop to activists by CCHQ as it seized control of selections, the conference, and so much more in 1998.
If elected I will work with CCHQ and our members to support the right campaigning resources in the right places, across the UK.
The voluntary party needs a champion. I will ask your views before making decisions, whenever a matter of significance arises.
My offer is to work full time for our volunteers. My guarantee is to stand up for our voluntary party. My ambition is to keep winning.
I am standing on a platform calling for empowerment, transparency, accountability and democracy.
These elections offer us an opportunity to strengthen the connection between the national leadership and the voluntary party.
