Leadership candidate asks members to "change ballot paper"

Newbie MP and Labour Leadership contender (“contender”? Think “hopeful” will do – Ed.) Jim Garner has burnished his self-proclaimed maverick tendencies with his latest campaign video.

Despite omission from the ballot paper due to a misunderstanding – Garner forgot to officially nominate himself, meaning he didn’t reach the required 33 CLP nominations – the South Luxton and Wetfield MP recorded a short piece to camera in which he appeals to Labour members:

“This is alternative vote how it should be. Change the ballot paper for change!”

More details on Garner’s electoral reform pledge are available via his website.
