At a time when so-called ‘centrist’ Labour MPs – and party apparatchiks – are using the basest of false accusations to remove left-winger Chris Williamson from what they consider to be their party, Craig Murray’s words could not be more important.
We have tolerated these vipers in our midst for far too long and they have hindered the Corbyn project at every opportunity.
Principle among them, of course, is Tom Watson, who promised before his election as the party’s deputy leader that he would support any Labour leader to the hilt – until he realised that the new leader would be Jeremy Corbyn.
We’ve had four years of backstabbing and betrayal from this political pipsqueak – who has benefited hugely from right-wing media cheerleading that he did not deserve.
He doesn’t represent the Labour Party. He’s the spokesman for a tiny minority of members who happen to have found their way into Parliamentary seats via political patronage, the Blairite system of ‘parachuting’ yes-people into safe seats and other undemocratic methods.
I think a right-wing Labour MP who got their seat with the genuine support of their constituency members is an extreme rarity and the re-selection process that has been triggered this month is an opportunity not only to prove this, but also to get rid of them, once and for all.
You don’t have to be an Austrian Archduke to stand at the moment when your own small actions can have profound, indeed historical ramifications.
Corbyn supporters are at that moment of historic decision right now – and mostly do not realise it.
Jeremy Corbyn represents the only realistic chance the people of England and Wales have been given in decades, to escape from the neo-liberal economics that have impoverished vast swathes of the population. But he leads a parliamentary party which is almost entirely comprised of hardline neo-liberal adherents.
The majority of the parliamentary Labour party are the people who brought in academy schools, high student tuition fees, PFI, who introduced more privatisation into the health service than the Tories have, and who brought you the Iraq and Afghan Wars. They abstained on the Tory austerity benefit cuts and on May’s “hostile environment” immigration legislation. They support Trident nuclear missiles. Many hanker after bombing Syria, and most are members of Labour Friends of Israel.
They have spent the last four years in undermining Corbyn at every turn and attempting to return Labour to the right wing political Establishment agenda.
It is ESSENTIAL that every Labour Party member reading this blog acts NOW to try to get rid of those dreadful Blairite MPs.
