Labour deputy leader Tom Watson has appeared in the Observer to brand Labour ‘shamed and embarrassed’, claiming the party will be “unfit for government, unless it calls an immediate halt to damaging arguments over antisemitism” – yet in his self-serving article he has, of course, perpetuated the argument.
Members on social media have been asking why they never hear Watson talking about Labour policy, yet he can find time to write the nonsense published today.
And now Labour members and supporters are saying ‘enough is enough’ – and they will be mounting a Twitter protest this evening from 7pm to call for his resignation as deputy leader, by promoting the #ResignWatson hashtag.
Last week’s #WeAreCorbyn campaign trended at global number one, raising morale and reminding the UK why it needs Jeremy Corbyn and a Labour government.
But Watson’s departure would raise morale even higher.
