Hull West and Hessle Constituency Labour Party met Wednesday evening in an emergency meeting to vote on a motion proposed by a member.
We met to vote on a "statement of support for Jeremy Corbyn, the democratically elected leader of the Labour Party."
The motion was "The CLP of Kingston upon Hull West and Hessle believe that the leader of the Labour Party should be democratically voted for by the membership of the Labour Party and the Parliamentary Labour Party should not undemocratically decide to disregard their vote."
It went on "we therefore support Jeremy Corbyn as leader until another election is called and the membership democratically decide on their preferred leader."
It was an orderly meeting with those wanting to speak allowed up to five minutes to talk through the chair.
The motion proposer spoke first.
There was a brief debate about the motion needing to be seconded which happened quickly.
One and a half hours later those attending voted in favour of the motion. The votes were by hand and counted as:
Our CLP did not support any candidate in last year's leadership race as there was no consensus but a majority Wednesday sent a clear message of support for Jeremy Corbyn.
Our MP Alan Johnson did not attend. It was however an emergency meeting and the CLP will hold its usual meeting later this month.
The number of people attending was possibly unique and considering the meeting clashed with the Wales Euro 2016 football match probably exceptional.
Hull Daily Mail report Thursday "Blow for Hull MP Alan Johnson as local party back Jeremy Corbyn."

With that in mind this blog will concentrate on the political scene but with a left wing perspective. Opinion pieces and news will bring you the stories that the MSM prefer to ignore.
