Labour’s far-right fringers are plotting again. Time to boot them out

A gathering of nobodies: Stephen Kinnock, Chuka Umunna and Liz Kendall.

What a pathetic shower.

These right-wingers – not centrists – tried a coup once before and it didn’t work. But they are opportunists so they will try again.

And when that doesn’t work, they are planning to prevent Labour from forming a government by quitting the party and forming a new one of their own.

I cannot think of a better reason for the Labour leadership to withdraw the whip.

No wonder Unite the Union is said to be planning to support a motion for mandatory reselection of MPs at this year’s Labour conference.

We’ve had enough of this treachery.

A seat in Parliament should not be an automatic right of the incumbent – it should belong to the person chosen by the people, especially if the person currently occupying it is planning to betray those who put them there.

The sooner these nobodies are gone, the better.

As Labour‘s divide over anti-Semitism continues to grow, a number of anti-Corbyn MPs have been meeting to discuss how to “take back control” of the party, it was reported.

Around 12 MPs were said to have met in a Sussex farmhouse to discuss policy and prepare to “step in” after the leadership’s “collapse”, sources said.

The group is said to include Chuka Umunna, Liz Kendall, Stephen Kinnock and John Woodcock, among others.

Many Labour MPs have clashed with the leadership on the party’s policy towards Brexit, with centrists preferring to fight against it or advocate a second vote.

One attendee said pro-Remain Tories and Lib Dems had expressed interest in a new centrist party. Vince Cable, the Lib Dem leader, was previously found to be attending a meeting about such a new group during a vote on a crucial Brexit amendment.

    I heard about this. Note how they have distanced themselves from the anti-Semitism nonsense. You’re right; every M.P. should have to stand, that way we avoid complacency and engage the public with our democracy. What is the point in representative democracy, when the representative represents only their own interests?
    As for Vince Cable(!) Isn’t he supposed to be leader of the Centrist Party? Ha! Ha! Ha! Why forma new one? If the so-called Moderates are so centred, they could defect to the £ib Dems… och, that’s right, they don’t want to leave the £abour Party! If it weren’t so serious, it would be funny.

    I hope that vinc cable gets his way and forms a pro remain party, then we will be shot of these people who think they are above those who voted leave.

      Who says anybody thinks they’re above the quitters?
      Better-informed, sure. More reasonable, sure. And we were right about the consequences. But above? No. Nobody said that.

      1. Zippi

        Better-informed and more reasonable? That depends on where you stand and whom you talk to. As for the consequences; we’ve yet to leave to the jury is still out. That said, there were many of us, who voted to leave, who were under no illusion that it was going to be a bed of roses, certainly not without thorns. It was never going to be easy but it should have been a darned sight easier than this!

      2. Mike Sivier Post author

        Yes, better-informed and more reasonable. Look at the number of lies the Leave campaign are now known to have pushed on an unsuspecting public. And look at the reaction of Leavers to any argument they don’t like – they call it Project Fear and in that way they try to claim it should be ignored. That is not reasonable.

        Mike whilst I would support most everything else you write about, I am at a loss as to why you are such a staunch defender of the EU, when even the Germans believe at some point that Europe will collapse. Fundamentally Europe is both unstable and undemocratic, we on the other hand have our own currency and can spend without limit on anything for sale in our own country. Europe is not the same, they treat each country as though it were a household, and they have to earn Euros by trade. I have provided you with graphs showing the inter trade balances that are irreconcilable, which is holding those countries back and as we see with Greece slowly dismantling the state as is happening here.

        The events that worry you were caused not by the EU but by neoliberalism.
        There’s nothing wrong with the concept of an alliance of nations in Europe. It has gone awry, but can always be fixed.

    Absolutely, withdraw the whip from all of those known to be involved, and do it now, who cares that the lying mass media will orchestrate support for them, the longer they remain inside the party the more damage they will inflict. They will get elected under a Labour banner then defect to this new right wing party. They know that if they do it on their own accord the public will reject them. We don’t need them but in order to get elected they need us, time to ditch them.

    I would have hoped that local party’s would get organised and do the right thing but it is just not happening.
