I see that Jeremy Corbyn is being criticised for insisting that the Labour Party Central Office select a candidate for the safe Labour seat of Lewisham East.
Apparently, the normal practice is for the local association to choose their candidate.
Do you realise that the Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn is under fire for wanting to use the selection process which is very close to the normal selection process of the Conservative Party?
The difference is that Labour Central Office will select the candidate and send that person to be confirmed by the Local Association, whereas the Conservatives send two to the Local Association so that they choose one of the two.
It is also interesting to see that the normal selection process of the Labour Party is the more democratic.
