See that tweet, right above these words?

I’m seeing a lot of messages like that, at the moment.

But apparently the mainstream media are full of stories about people leaving.

Of course, people are welcome to come and go as they please.

But the circumstances betray a great deal about those who are going.

Canary editor Kerry-Anne Mendoza has it right, here:

160924-labour-leaversSo to those people, let’s just say: “Go, and go well.”

Meanwhile, it is time for the NEC to redress some of the injustices that have happened over the last three months. Main – and most obvious – of these is the huge number of members who were purged from the party for no very good reason.

Thousands of people banned from voting because they thought a Green Party policy was good, back in 2014! You can understand the frustration.

The NEC is meeting every day during the Labour conference, so perhaps its members should visit Twitter and view the tweets made under the hashtag #UnpurgeMe, like these:

160924-unpurgeme1
160924-unpurgeme2
Call me suspicious, but I reckon the next media attack will be a claim that Jeremy Corbyn’s victory is “so unpopular” that he has caused a mass exodus from Labour. In fact, this couldn’t be further from the fact.

Here’s the fact:
