Good news: all nine of the branch nominations that were received have been 'accepted', none of them 'rejected' / ruled out of order, and so I've been confirmed as a candidate.
Well done and thanks to everyone for getting their forms immaculately filled in and their minutes typed up accurately etc. Next step is to get a good leaflet out in time for the ballot; voting will start on 27 September 2010.
So until then, there's plenty to be getting on with fighting against the cuts. Good luck, and see you in the streets!
