Under the current rules, only MPs vote on the leader, but under the proposed rules - due to be signed off at the party's annual conference in November - MPs will hold 40 per cent of the vote, members 40 per cent and affiliates 20 per cent.
This is obviously an improvement on the current situation, under which caucus imposes the leader. Equally obviously, its not fully democratic, in that the 34 members of the Labour caucus have an equal say to its ~15,000 members. It's "democratic" only in the Tongan sense. Real democracy would be one member, one vote.
