Disgrace of right-wing MPs now launching move they’ve planned since GE2017
Right-wing Labour MPs again disgraced themselves this evening by attempting to ‘break Jeremy Corbyn as a man’ – even though he has already announced the end of his tenure as party leader.
Labour members now have the unpleasant opportunity to see what would have been launched against Corbyn – and against them – in 2017, if the Labour right had not been stunned by the party’s surge in support to smash Theresa May’s majority.
The frustration of the entitled ‘bitterite’ MPs at having to wait two years to launch their attack was plain. One left-wing Labour MP told the SKWAWKBOX:
It was just attack after attack after attack from right. An absolute disgrace by people who are determined to wreck Jeremy personally and even the policies that nobody disputes the people of this country approve of.
It was appalling to see so many people who clearly despise the working class in one room – and a ‘Labour’ room, supposedly. Those same people caused last week’s disaster by their contempt for our heartlands and their leave vote – and now they want to put the blame on Jeremy and the whole left.
There were bright spots in the contributions from some of the new intake like Claudia Webbe and Mary Foy, who spoke like real Labour MPs – but some of the people in that room tonight disgrace our movement.
The shameful exhibition by a group of entitled MPs desperate to get ‘their’ party back onto Blairite territory made two things plain.
First, PLP meetings must be streamed live to Labour members from now on, so the cowards and bullies who disgrace our party must either curb their behaviour or be exposed.
And second, nobody remotely of their faction can be allowed by members within a mile of leadership or influence in the Labour Party.
Too many people are depending on Labour to be a real alternative for it to be dragged back to ‘Tory lite’ for the sake of the egos of a handful of vile people.
