Ironically-named ‘Renewal’ group pushing for new joiners while ‘Forward Momentum’ group pushing for change is calling for disaffected former members to rejoin
The deadline for the impending elections to Momentum’s National Coordinating Group (NCG) is fast approaching. Those who want to have a say on Momentum’s direction and how the organisation is run have until noon this Thurday, 11 June, to join and have a vote in the contest.
The ‘Momentum Renewal’ group – ironically named, considering insiders say it is a front for allies of owner and founder Jon Lansman and run by a cadre of north-west ‘fixers’ close to him – has been trying to boost recruitment of supportive members.
‘Forward Momentum’, a new group looking to move Momentum in a more democratic and left-wing direction, has published an appeal for ex-members disaffected by the anti-democratic methods and selections of which Momentum was frequently accused to rejoin before the deadline and vote for change:
Given the current and accelerating onslaught that the right-wing Labour Establishment is waging against left members and MPs, those who feel Momentum has any role to play in guarding and rebuilding the movement should join (or rejoin) before the deadline.
