The executive of Sheffield’s ‘Local Campaign Forum’, the city-wide elected body that runs election campaigns and oversees candidate selections, has added its voice to the many calling for Jeremy Corbyn’s reinstatement.
The group has unanimously passed the following motion:
The Sheffield LCF Executive stands in solidarity with Jeremy Corbyn, fully supporting his statement in response to the EHRC report, and calls upon the Labour Party nationally to reinstate him to full membership and the Whip without sanction.
Labour had been so flooded with member resignations over Keir Starmer’s action – because of a comment the EHRC report explicitly said he had a legally-protected right to make – that party general secretary David Evans has had to plead for help dealing with them from other departments and regional offices.
