Think of the Labour Party office-holders who are prohibiting members from voting in the leadership election because they have used certain words in the past – words which have now been unilaterally banned by the same office-holders.
Have any of those people expressed an opinion on the controversial burkini ban on French beaches?
Logically, if anybody wants to deny another person their right to democracy because they used a certain word two or three years ago, they wouldn’t hesitate to support a law that tells women what they can and can’t wear.
I think we need comments on the subject from Iain McNicol, Paddy Lillis, Johanna Baxter… it would be useful to have Tom Watson’s views on the subject.
And what about all the mainstream media sources who support those people but spoke out against the burkini ban?
That’s not to say we wouldn’t welcome comments from Corbyn campaigners as well – but I think we all know what their answer would be.
