Party can no longer exploit disciplinary rule to gag members
As the SKWAWKBOX revealed this afternoon, the conclusion of the disciplinary process around Jeremy Corbyn’s wrongful suspension means that the party hierarchy can no longer hide behind the rules to gag members from voting to support him.
Campaign for Labour Democracy (CLPD) has created a model emergency motion calling for the restoration of the party whip that was cravens withdrawn by Keir Starmer this morning, despite the EHRC ban on political interference in disciplinary outcomes:
CLPD Model Motion – Restore the Whip to Jeremy Corbyn
To Keir Starmer, Angela Rayner, Nick Brown (Chief Whip) and the NEC
This Branch/CLP notes with concern the decision taken by the Leader of the Labour Party not to restore the Labour Party whip from its former leader Jeremy Corbyn.
Jeremy Corbyn was reinstated as a member of the Labour Party on 17th November and we believe the Labour whip must also be restored.
We call on Keir Starmer to review this decision immediately and restore the whip to Jeremy Corbyn.
CLPD has also created a model email to send to Starmer’s office. Click here for details.
