Gloucester CLP at its all members meeting overwhelmingly voted in favour of Jeremy Corbyn. A 103 members attended a meeting chaired by Paul Thompson (Newly elected Chairman of Gloucester CLP). The vote went 80 for Jeremy and 23 for Owen. Jeremy narrowly missed been nominated by Gloucester CLP in last years ballet. He actually won the first ballet but lost out on the transferable votes. Gloucester CLP has experienced a fantastic surge in membership since Jeremy was elected as leader, which poses serious questions about his alledged inability to lead our party.
