Suspension of newly-elected left-winger not enough to prevent win
Left-winger Emine Ibrahim has been elected chair of Labour’s National Constitutional Committee (NCC) today, despite the right’s efforts to gerrymandering-by-suspension.
Newly-elected NCC member Rheian Davies, also on the left, was suspended this month as the right dredged up years-old private and social media comments to misconstrue as an excuse.
Congratulations to Ms Ibrahim, who will hopefully avoid the same fate as the right tries to retake control. Her complaint about Islamophobic behaviour sadly did not prevent a notorious right-wing former councillor being re-admitted to party membership.
