MP of the Year issues video summing up his record as the seat’s MP and asking members to support him to keep going
The right-wing Labour machine wants left-winger Ian Byrne out as the party’s candidate in the seat of Liverpool West Derby so it can fill that ultra-safe Labour seat with a right-winger who won’t make Keir Starmer look bad by being a better MP than him or call Starmer out on his unforgivable betrayal of Liverpool by writing for the Murdoch S*n – and the party machine doesn’t care that his main rival has allegations of bullying and ‘concentration camp’ hate speech toward a disabled women to answer.
The game is massively stacked against Byrne, because his enemies don’t much care which rules they have to bend, break or ignore in order to achieve their goal – even locking Byrne out of the member communication channels he is entitled to use as the MP – and have already done so to such an extent in this process that a party official refused to sign off on corrupted results and for their trouble was removed by the party.
Only a massive show of member support – and a refusal by members to stand by while they are disenfranchised and cut out of the process – might discourage the right from simply rigging a result, as has allegedly been the case throughout the process so far.
Hillsborough survivor Byrne – MP of the Year for his outstanding work fighting against poverty and hunger on behalf of his constituents and the vulnerable everywhere – has issued a video outlining and standing by his record as MP since he was elected (against the best efforts of right-wingers then, too) in 2019. And he has called on local Labour members to come out to vote for him to ensure he can continue what he has started in such remarkable fashion:
If Labour members in that constituency care remotely about decency and their own democratic rights, let alone the fate of poor children, families and vulnerable people in their area, they will unequivocally #KeepIanByrneMP to represent them.
