One-time centrist leadership challenger’s CLP joins huge groundswell against abuse of former leader, after drive by women members
Pontypridd Labour members have passed a motion of strong support for Jeremy Corbyn – and demanding that Keir Starmer and party general secretary David Evans start following the rules by restoring the whip to the former Labour leader.
The motion was first unanimously passed by the CLP’s women’s forum – which then insisted it be tabled at the main party meeting, where it also passed, despite right-wing attempts to block it:
The CLP is one of an increasing and accelerating number of local parties to pass motions demanding Corbyn’s reinstatement – and even of no-confidence in Starmer and Evans – in spite of attempts by the right-wing hierarchy to stymie them – adding to the woes of both after fourteen NEC members ordered Evans to rebuke Starmer for his reckless disregard for the party’s rules and legal obligations.
