Today’s Guardian features an article from supporters of the Jon Cruddas campaign arguing that all of the candidates for the deputy leadership should have access to the full Labour Party membership list.
Luke’s blog comments on the issue and in particular the impression from the article that Hazel Blears has access to the full Labour Party membership list.
As CLP secretary I have been contacted by a number of folks on behalf of the various candidates. All of them until tonight have contacted me by the house phone which as both a councillor and CLP secretary is listed in various places including the constituency website
Tonight however I was contacted by someone on behalf of the Hazel Blears campaign via my mobile.
Now whilst not exactly a smoking gun on the issue of access to the membership list, the only place I can think of, that my mobile number is listed (Labour Party wise) is on the membership system.
