Labour members back Corbyn against Starmer

If Keir Starmer wants to get rid of Jeremy Corbyn, it seems he’s going to have to fight his own party. Up and down the country, Constituency Labour Parties (CLPs) have condemned the Labour leader’s decision to keep the Islington MP suspended. Corbyn was originally suspended from the party on 29 October following his response to the publication of the EHRC antisemitism report. He argued that the levels of antisemitism in the party had been “dramatically overstated”. That suspension has now been lifted. But Starmer has controversially ruled that Corbyn still cannot serve as a Labour MP. CLPs fighting back Starmer told the Guardian: Jeremy Corbyn’s actions in…

If they expel Corbyn, Labour centrists will open themselves up to the one thing they can’t handle

Over the past five years, Labour’s most prominent centrists have demonstrated an impressive level of resilience. By that I mean no matter how stupid, wrong, or nasty an idea is, they’ve been prepared to vocalise it in order to monster Corbyn and the political project behind him. As the media happily joined in, this has meant the centrists’ own political ideas have gone half a decade without any serious attention.This could spell trouble ahead.Because if Starmer expels Corbyn and the Labour ghouls lose their bogeyman, they’re opening themselves up to the one thing they can’t survive: the mildest of public scrutiny. The central complaintLabour’s centre has a pretty…

Starmer’s foolish decision to suspend Corbyn is a gift to the Tories. And racists everywhere.

Keir Starmer’s foolish decision to suspend former Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn is a huge gift for the Tory government. And it will help racists everywhere. The suspension, following the publication of the EHRC report into antisemitism in the Labour Party, will be debated for months. But some things are beyond doubt. The suspension has immediately, and predictably, been used by the Conservative Party to attack both Starmer and the left he himself is attacking. Sir Keir Starmer has supported Jeremy Corbyn from the start. He even paid tribute to him this year. He doesn’t do what’s right, he only does what’s politically convenient. #SameOldLabour 🥀 pic.twitter.com/OitIHLgajy —…

Selective StarmerOne of the most prominent questions involves Starmer’s behaviour towards Diane Abbott. Or rather, his total lack of action on the fierce abuse the Labour MP has received.
