If he wins the leadership election (and he will – comfortably), Jeremy Corbyn will have effective control of Labour’s ruling National Executive Committee and will be able to introduce any democratic changes he wants.

It seems he is putting this suggestion in the public domain to ensure it has the support of Labour’s wider membership.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has called for the party to consider its rules and ensure all members can vote in future leadership contests.

He described Friday’s Court of Appeal ruling – which excluded 130,000 new members from voting in the party’s leadership contest – as “very sad”.

He also told critics to “get on board” and “take the fight to the Tories”.

[He added:] “After all this is over we have got to look at those rules to make sure everyone gets a right to a democratic vote.”
