Member denies right-wing machine the pleasure of expelling him
Skwawkbox warned last week that the right-wing regime running the Labour party was about to stoop to ridiculous depths to widen its purge of left-wing members. That started to come true within days, with Labour threatening a member with expulsion on the grounds that disagreeing with someone who opposed Labour’s manifesto pledges of a ‘universal basic income’ and free broadband was a hate-crime because it attacked that person’s ‘belief’.
And now, a member has quit after being threatened with expulsion for supporting Jeremy Corbyn – in 2018 when he was the Labour leader who had recently stunned the country by shattering Tory Theresa May’s majority.
The member, whom Skwawkbox is not naming because the post was on a ‘closed’ Facebook group, explained that he had received:
a long letter that asked me to defend my posts in support of Corbyn in 2018. I haven’t replied. Just cancelled my sub and they are so shit they are chasing me for a response and haven’t even seen the sub cancellation or my post on Facebook (I thought they were looking at it) which says I’ve left and explained what an amazing job they are doing focusing on social media posts from 2018 in support of the former leader whilst the country falls to bits.
When Keir Starmer recently made Labour’s slogan ‘WTF’, he dramatically understated the travesty into which he has turned the party in his cowardly desperation to rid it of anyone with genuine vision for change.
