I can't believe it's not Stalin!

In a fascinating insight into the psychology of those UNISON officials who have recently taken to anonymous blogging their focus in reporting on Wednesday's meeting of our NEC has been on a pointless ninety minute debate about "collective responsibility."

The official report of the NEC meeting is a far more balanced assessment of the important issues which were discussed.

Our NEC rightly spent a lot of time on public sector pay, on the "Million Voices" campaign and on a range of organising work - unfortunately we also had to spend time on a proposal (which I opposed) that members of NEC Committees may no long speak or vote - at the full NEC -against a recommendation from that Committee.

I shall blog a full report soon

Interesting blog Jon by the NEC? But it doesn't seem to allow mere mortals to leave any comments? Is that right or do I need to find the right knob??

I think this is the correct blog for the right knob.

Yes, I've noticed that there is no place for comments on a blog which purports to be the first port of call for the rank and file. Fortunately Cde Rogers has shown us an ingenious way to comment regardless. Note how, at the bottom of their post, it says it's linked to "I can't believe it's not Stalin!" Maybe others with blogs could think up similarly pithy post titles to link to the story. :-)
