Some even more unequal than others

28/08/2013

Labour’s rules allowing affiliate unions to vote for its leader makes some members more equal than others.

Those who are both individual members of the party and a voting delegate of an affiliate union or a member of a union which will allow all its members a vote will get two votes.

Rob Hosking points out that a few members are even more unequal.

All MPs get two votes, one as a member of caucus and the second as a member of the party. But those who are members of affiliate union will get a third vote.

That is a perversion of democracy where all people are supposed to be equally equal.
