'Big Brother' Brown gets the Labour Party to show it loves him by agreeing to stifle dissent
Inconvenient topics, for the Party leadership, will helpfully be kept off the agenda at Labour Party conferences as a result of a resolution passed at Bournemouth. The leadership has succeeded almost wholly in convincing unions and constituency Labour parties that the change is good for them and the Labour Party. Whether the promise to review the change after two years will ever happen is anyone's guess, although the cynic in me tends to doubt it - specially as we will then definitely be heading into another General Election, if one hasn't already been held. The only ones who seem to be against the change are some of those on the left of the Party; Stalin and Trotsky anyone?
