Labour delegates in Tottenham voted in favour of in a motion of no confidence in Labour leader Keir Starmer and acting general secretary David Evans on Wednesday night – and for Jeremy Corbyn’s immediate reinstatement to the Labour whip.
Delegates representing members of the ‘CLP’ voted by 49-4 for the no-confidence motion and 55-0 for the whip to be restored to Corbyn.
Regional officials attempted to rule out both motions, but the CLP chair put the matter to the meeting and members voted for the motions to be heard – triggering a walk-out by a dozen or so right-wingers, who evidently realised they did not have the numbers to defeat them.
The groundswell of outrage against Starmer and Evans continues to grow – as does the level of refusal to accept their attempts to ban free speech among Labour members, in spite of escalating threats and abuse and the party’s disregard for the EHRC report’s re-affirmation of their human right to express their views.
