‘We must not let this cowardly coup succeed’

A small number of self-indulgent and irresponsible MPs are threatening to damage Labour beyond all repair, writes Mark Seddon in the Morning Star.*

This squalid coup aimed at destabilising the new leadership has been planned from the get-go — a self-fulfilling prophecy from false prophets, many of whom owe their careers in Parliament to the Tammany Hall politics of provided parachutes or well-connected parents.

This parade of mannequins are dancing to the tune of yesterday’s men, Tony Blair and Lord Peter Mandelson.

And the same procession of baleful professional malcontents who cannot yet offer a pretender, nor any policies, have staged a secret ballot of no confidence to protect them from the ire of the members.

They want to keep Corbyn’s name off any ballot paper in case he should win again with an increased majority.

What contemptible cowards. We cannot let them succeed.

    I doubt they will succeed. The membership will see to that.

  2. Thank goodness we still have the Morning Star. Although do I detect a change in The Guardians stance following Diane Abbotts article yesterday?

  3. NMac

    Unity is desperately needed at this time. I am conviced that Jeremy Corbyn can win an election hands down.

  4. Rusty

    This is political suicide by the blairites, the sooner they all go the better.

  5. jeffrey davies

    Caught napping again…we warned that that Der Reich Wing would strike again…cull the Party of Blair’s bitches (Him’s & Hers) are a contamination to far.

  7. The ‘Labour Coup’ against Jeremy Corbyn are cutting off their noses to spite their faces.

    Labour Party members will leave in their droves if Corbyn is ousted by the MPs who voted against him.

    The Labour Party ‘Contemptibles’ are a bane to democratic socialism!

  8. David Woods

    They are traitors – Treat them as such!

  9. Brian

    Now they are identified, each one needs challenging on just who they are claiming to represent.

      Brain, I’ve tried to contact my Labour MP, but the email address I’ve used for years to contact is bouncing my emails and her website’s contact link is not working. So used her parliamentary email address, rather the local one. Did exactly as you suggested and asked her to let party members know what her are on main areas of concern for party members. They’ll want to make this an issue about personalities and competence as most party members would not support their tory-lite policies.
