Excl: Lab HQ DID deactivate JC team passes on election night – and more

The ‘Southside’ building on Victoria St, which houses Labour’s HQ

As Private Eye has observed, Labour’s HQ – currently occupied by many who are less than friendly to the idea of the party as a genuine, socialist electoral alternative under Jeremy Corbyn in spite of the vast majority of members’ full support for it – ended up with egg on their faces on the night of 8 June:

Having fallen for their own propaganda of ‘electoral meltdown’ – being far too removed from the grassroots members, any one of whom would have told them differently – the hapless right-wingers apparently prepared what was effectively a would-be coup, ‘changing the locks’ (or rather, deactivating the entry cards) to prevent Jeremy Corbyn’s team from accessing the building.

The sheer arrogance of this is as staggering as the extent to which the party’s bureaucracy (and its right-wing MPs) are out of touch. Even if Labour had done badly in the General Election, there was no obligation for Jeremy Corbyn to stand down – and indeed, having won two election contests overwhelmingly, with a huge majority of members determined that he should not go, there was every expectation that Corbyn would continue to stand firm.

Yet the Blairite relics were convinced they could just lock him and his team out of the building.

The SKWAWKBOX can exclusively confirm that deactivating the door passes was not the limit of right-wing arrogance and idiocy at ‘Southside’ that night. According to a very senior Labour source, the email accounts of Corbyn’s team were also shut down.

There is definitely a need for some deactivations – and some desk-clearing – at Labour’s HQ. But it’s not Corbyn and his support team that should be marched out by security clutching their possessions in a cardboard box.

  1. Can’t get there but I’m buying up loads of popcorn for the Labour Party conference. McNicol, eat your heart out.

  2. Until this gang are cleared out there can be no peace in the party. Time is short and they are playing for it. Jeremy has to be decisive and quickly. A big clearout starting with whip withdrawals and a couple of selective expulsions has to happen. If this is not done then the party will be undermined by these people.

    • Expulsion/deselection’s the only answer, in my book. Every current labour MP – without exception – simply MUST be put up for reselection when the next election’s called…Preferably beforehand.

      Removing the whip would only leave them free to vote with the toerags without the accompanying scrutiny & accompanying censure.

  4. Umunna & jowell once sent a letter to chris grayling (Then justice minister) imploring him to extend a squatting ban to non residential buildings…

    Time for them & their lot to be on the end of an eviction. Could start by deactivating THEIR passes, or at least making a ‘poor door’ for them and the rest of the ‘squatters’ to go through.

    Shower o’ sh….

  5. How did Laura Kuesnberg know about this? Further, why did Yvette Cooper defend Kuensberg when it is well known she is a biased Tory stooge? Just so sick of this, why are these people trying to ruin the party, they are in the minority yet they think they can inflict n their wants on everyone else!

      ‘Why’ indeed. ‘Girl power’?

      I thinks not, somehow.

  6. As they are not likely to go away voluntarily, which would be the decent thing to do, they will need to be given their marching orders. They had 2 years to mend their ways! Enough is enough!

  9. For God sake.! Haven’t we got enough to deal with being constantly attacked and having to keep fighting the Tories, without this kind of shit from our own party. (Supposedly). Why do we bother when they totally disregard us and disrespect and back stab the leader that we have chosen TWICE.

  10. I wonder where the Blairites get the idea that June 8th would be a Corbyn meltdown.

    When the election was called I listened avidly to LBC. Usually very right wing, and at the start 4 out of 5 callers were anti Corbyn, many pro Tory, but by June 7th 4 out of 5 were pro Corbyn and even the anti Corbyn/Tory callers were getting a hard time from the usually right wing presenters. I knew the tories we’re in trouble and Labour would make gains but outright victory was not expected, but not impossible either.

    In fact I am enjoying watching the Tory fools destroy themselves due to Brexit. (I am pro Brexit but not the Tory version of it. We need to go back to a pre Maastricht, pre EU, old EEC, pre €euro Europe that worked.)

  12. I find it so depressing to read this. It also makes me very angry. McNicol must go as must those Labour staffers who were involved. Arrogant “old school” Labour who still think they “own” the party. They don’t and they must go as they refuse to change..

  13. Really it’s about time we took some Affirmative Acton against the real destructive and treacherous elements of the labour party and im amazed Blair still stalks Labour’s corridors like Jacob Martley clanking his chains. Its particularly annoying when so many good comrades remain suspended

  14. Hahaa! Would’ve so loved to have been a fly on the wall of the space McNicoll was in when he saw that exit poll😂😂😂. Could imagine him bursting into a sweaty little ball and saying,’Omg! And I’ve turned their passes and emails off!’
    Seriously, If you did this in any other place of work, your job would be gone – it’s gross misconduct. Unless HR were in on it too. I’d even go so far as to say that the combined treachery and cynical sculldugery of McNicoll, Dugdale, and all, cost Labour the election, at least a bigger minority given the timescale. Don’t believe me? Do the math.
