Labour right has working-class MP Ian Byrne on its hit-list. He’s still feeding people in need
Last night, the Labour party announced its bid to remove Ian Byrne as the MP for West Derby in Liverpool – one of the safest seats in the country that the regime would no doubt like to fill with a right-winger.
As the party published its ad for applicants to stand against Liverpool’s most popular and effective MP, Byrne was at the pilot of his new ‘Scouse Kitchen’ community kitchen project – an extension of his years-long work with the hugely successful Fans Supporting Foodbanks group he co-founded and his landmark ‘Right to Food’ campaign to make adequate nutrition for everyone a human right and a government obligation.
Skwawkbox attended the event and spoke to others involved about both the project and the party’s determination to oust the man behind it – and saw people in need, particularly children, not only being fed but making and enjoying social connections that will enhance the life of the local community.
This is a small taste of what they said:
Skwawkbox saw hungry kids being fed and parents alleviated of a little of their burden and smiling and talking to people who became friends – and an MP who’s concern and hard work for his constituents and others is undeniable. A fuller video will follow.
