Update from Lord Cruddas:
“I have received a reply to my legal letter to CCHQ within the time frame specified.
“Amongst other things they have acknowledged the Conservative Post and my petition and we are now formatting it in a way that makes it easier and quicker for them to validate membership details. This will take us 24 hours.
“We are in further dialogue about the contents of the petition and my letter but as there are legal and constitutional issues I cannot update you further for now.
“However, we are definitely right about the constitution and the 10,000 member signatures needed to make changes to the constitution.
“So, members sign our petition as it makes our position even stronger, if you want constitutional change in the Conservative Party. I need your backing.”
Members can sign the petition at www.ConservativePost.co.uk/BorisBallot
