Primary concern

Dear Grandad,

Hope you’re having a good Sunday! I wanted to get your opinion on a couple of things.

The first is a survey that I was sent by a group within the Labour Party who think the leadership may not be taking the expenses scandal seriously enough. It’s meant to be a survey of Labour members – I’ve filled it in – but there is also an option to fill it in if you’re not a member, so I think it’d be really good if you did it – it’s very short, click on this link to take the survey.

One of the questions in the survey is whether you would like to see open primaries for Labour candidates – this is like the American system where anyone in a constituency can take part in selecting a Party’s local candidate. David Cameron announced today that he wants to see more of these to replace the Tory MPs who have announced they will be standing down at the next election.

What do you think? Do you think Labour should introduce something like this as well? Would you be more likely to vote Labour if you thought you could have more input into who your Labour candidate would be?

Love from Grace
