Primaries don’t break the bank and a majority of Labour supporters would take part

My ninth piece for the Independent, on the exclusive polling for the Uncut pamphlet we are publishing on Monday in Brighton is here, with the full tables in the Labour Uncut version here.

The story made the Indy's news pages and I even got a namecheck in the newspaper, I think. Gosh.

Bottom line: there's a lot of scaremongering going on, but primaries could recoup the money and they would have a pretty significant level of participation.

At the moment, at least, this really huge reform really does look like it is all going ahead - I haven't had a chance yet to read the Collins Review interim report which came out yesterday, but Chuka Umunna also did an interview today to that effect.


On Monday, dear readers, we launch the Labour Uncut pamphlet with a chapter from yours truly on "leadership and party", so hang onto your hats - the precis of the pamphlet to be published tomorrow in the Indy.

Exciting times.
