CLP also congratulates MP Dawn Butler for her clear statement of support
Labour members in London’s Brent Central constituency have sent an emphatic message to the party: restore Jeremy Corbyn’s parliamentary whip.
At a meeting tonight, the ‘CLP’ passed the following motion with only two delegates voting against:
Brent Central CLP welcomes the reinstatement of Jeremy Corbyn to the Labour Party.
We believe that Jeremy Corbyn is a man who has for decades championed powerfully the values of anti-racism, internationalism and solidarity, as both a Labour MP and the Leader of the Labour Party. We express our solidarity to him, and all those who have campaigned for his reinstatement.
We therefore deplore Keir Starmer’s unwarranted intervention to deny Jeremy Corbyn’s parliamentary whip. At a time when we should be fighting the pernicious effects of austerity, privatisation and failing capitalism, this decision – which does not seem to be grounded in truth nor justice – greatly damages the labour movement.
We call on Keir Starmer to immediately restore Jeremy Corbyn’s parliamentary whip.
Many members congratulated their MP, Dawn Butler MP, for her statement calling on the whip to be restored to Jeremy Corbyn.
The groundswell of outrage and resolve among Labour members is growing – and is only likely to accelerate after the revelation that fourteen members of Labour’s National Executive Committee have written to party general secretary David Evans ordering him to rebuke Keir Starmer for his ‘deliberate political interference’ in Corbyn’s disciplinary process and for publicly undermining the NEC panel that followed independent legal advice in lifting Corbyn’s suspension.
Corbyn’s legal team has demanded that Starmer’s office hand over all communications relating both to the disciplinary outcome and the subsequent withdrawal of the Labour whip.
