The List of the Friends of John Cummins to date

In response to the dissidents in the party there has been some organizing by the people supporting the leader as the Friends of John Cummins.   There is no website or facebook page for them but there have been several press releases with the names of prominent people in the party backing the leader.

I know of four releases with names of the friends of John Cummins totaling 30 people.
