“BAME Labour is a small voluntary organisation which is affiliated to but not a part of the national party.
The elections for BAME Labour’s executive in 2009 and in 2011 were conducted to the rules and candidates were eligible and nominated correctly, as was found by the High Court when it considered the 2011 election.
Membership of BAME Labour costs £1. I have always paid my membership fee. In 2011 I was elected unopposed.”
