Ann Black – Independent and Left

Ann Black is seeking re-election to the NEC,Ann has served on the NEC since 2000 and the national policy forum since 1998. She was elected on the Centre Left Grassroots Alliance at every previous election. Ann has been a voice for commonsense left politics throughout. She is accountable and transparent, and has reported after every meeting for 20 years.

Ann’s politics remain on the left after 20 years serving our party, and she believes that it’s great to have a leader who shares them. Ann has voted consistently against austerity, selective education, the Iraq war and Trident, and for public services, fair taxation, decent pensions and social security benefits, restoring council funds, and large-scale social housing. 

Ann has worked consistently for party democracy. Together with the unions Ann achieved one-member-one-vote elections for national policy forum CLP representatives, against the wishes of the then leadership, and its extension to the conference arrangements committee. Ann steered the women’s conference towards formal debate in 2017, with votes on motions this year and a free-standing women’s conference next spring.

Ann has consistently stood up for ordinary members and has been the friend of constituency party secretaries who haven’t been able to get help or information from the National Party. Ann doesn’t just believe in openness and transparency but shown bravery to achieve it for members and local parties across the country.

If you don’t want more of the same old slates winning all the seats on the constituency section of the NEC. If you want an independent voice for the NEC then come and hear Ann at the 1000 Trades, Frederick Street in the Jewellery Quarter.
