Spellar Not In Deputy Leader Bid

John Spellar, ex-minister and man of beard and glasses has suggested that the post of Labour Deputy leader should be scraped. Interestingly his reasons are not like most peoples ie the current incumbent doesn't seem to do a huge amount. Instead the man gives his reasons as being for financial purposes. He estimates that to run a deputy leadership election it would cost £2m to Labour and £1.5m to the unions. Clearly the Labour Party are really struggling financially with the paying off of loans and their £23m debt, or maybe they just realise that the post is redundant even connecting to the grassroots is pointless as it currently seems that the grassroots say one thing then the executive do the opposite.
