Henry Bolton’s proposed Constitutional ‘reform’

Steve Crowther writes on behalf of the NEC On February 13th 2018, the Leader has published an attractively-presented new Draft Constitution, which has been sent out to all members for whom the party has email addresses. I should point out that this draft and ‘consultation’ has not been discussed with or presented to the NEC, so is an informal process at best.
