Sadly union elections are very low and have been for ages. A bit part of the problem is that only postal ballots are allowed. The government bans using electronic voting which would hugely increase turn out. The same for strike ballots.

He only just scrapped in though , if my math is right only about 1 in 8 members voted for McClusky , Unite has a low take up among the industries they represent and those that do join obviously are very unmotivated by the Reps and leader going by this Ballot .
A real shame and likely to lead to a falling Union membership in the UK overall just when it's more important than ever to be in a Union ,

It's for the common good Gerard. Perhaps he'll go back to sniping with chukka and Tristram Hunt (so close) from the sidelines.

c12% of the members voted. 5.5% of the membership voted for Len. Now that's what I call a mandate

Only 12% of potential voters could be arsed to vote?

That's got to be something that needs to be addressed?

Strange, I'm in that Union and haven't heard a thing from them, something dodgy there I think.

I'll dig out my card tomorrow and find out why I wasn't asked.

Although I should say in previous challenges the challenger was usually an even bigger nutter.
