Newham CLP officers quitting Labour in protest at war on members and democracy
Last week Skwawkbox reported the resignation of both constituency Labour party (CLP) chairs in the London borough of Newham – both East and West Ham – and the departure of the Newham branch chair, from both their roles and their party membership in protest at the leadership’s naked factional war on party members and their democratic rights and the Islamophobia rampant among the Labour right.
East Ham chair Tahir Mirza warned that more local party officers and members would quickly be leaving the party in their own expression of disgust at the anti-left obsession and contempt for justice of the Labour right and its placeman at the head of Labour. And now, Boleyn ward chair Gulab Miah has also confirmed his resignation from the party after a year of him and his colleagues being hounded by the Starmer regime and its eggers-on over unsubstantiated complaints that the Met Police had already investigated and dismissed:
Miah points out that the beneficiaries of the suspension have been – surprise – right-wingers getting a walk-through in council selections, a situation that has betrayed Newham’s people.
Who will be the next to go as the actions of Starmer and his henchman expose the hollow shell that they have made of the Labour party?
