Jeremy’s victory means defending the poor at ever level

Let us enjoy our victory. But the Conference decision threatening to discipline brave Labour Councillors who vote against implementing Tory cuts shows the Blairites still control the party apparatus. We must now arm the party with the kind of pre-Kinnock and pre-Blair democratic constitution which empowered the members to shape party policy and to select and re-select the candidates of their choice. The anti-austerity movement will not allow this decision to shield Labour councillors from carrying out their historic responsibilities. Jeremy has been re-elected on an anti-austerity platform. The job of Labour Councillors and MPs is to defend those least able to defend themselves and vote against cuts.
