Rolling coverage of the day’s political developments as they happen

The Labour party has refused Lisa Nandy’s request to change the format of the leadership hustings, at least for now, HuffPost’s Paul Waugh reports.

Latest party response to @lisanandy request for longer than 40 seconds for Lab leadership candidates at hustings: "The procedures committee decided to stick to the 40 seconds for this weekends hustings in Leeds and to review it again on Monday...

The GMB has a strong tradition of promoting smart, soft left women (new MP Sarah Owen replaced the legendary late Mary Turner on the NEC until her election to parliament) and with Nandy campaign chair Louise Haigh another alumnus, it could be ‘the women-wot-win-it’. A big endorsement could provide the launchpad she desperately needs to show members she’s a heavyweight figure in this race (remember her ‘preferential strategy’ depends entirely on coming ahead of Long-Bailey, a big ask).

But the GMB’s central executive council (CEC) is made up of 55 ‘lay’ members and they’re proud of the democratic, regional structure. Although there are big Nandy fans (dubbed ‘Nandynistas’ by one party insider who shares my age and knowledge of Latin American leftists) in senior GMB posts, it’s possible that the 55 council members have picked up the same pro-Starmer rank-and-file sentiment as other unions.
