Coward Starmer wouldn’t tell Corbyn he was suspended; former Labour leader heard it from a PHOTOGRAPHER

This is par for the course with Labour’s Governance and Legal Unit, that leaks like a sieve.

I found out about my own suspension from a Western Mail reporter, the day before the Labour Party’s email arrived.

Jackie Walker can tell you herself how she found out:

And as you can see from the clip, Jeremy Corbyn found out from a photographer.

If the correct process is followed, then he will have received by now – by email and/or by snail mail – notification of his suspension, and this should explain exactly who complained about him, what he did that caused the complaint, and which Labour Party rules he broke by this action.

If it doesn’t, then Labour is breaking its own (current rules).

While these matters are usually confidential, I think Mr Corbyn has an obligation to publicise the contents of the letter. His suspension has caused an outcry among many thousands – if not millions – of people across the UK because it seems clear to us that he did nothing wrong.

We need to see Labour’s – in fact party general secretary David Evans’s – reasons for the decision.

The letter should also include a series of questions for Corbyn to answer, in order to provide a defence against the accusation(s), along with a timescale in which to do so and an explanation of the next steps.

None of these elements were in my own letter of suspension in 2017, so I would point out that Corbyn benefits from improvements that he, in fact, imposed.

But I hope that does not lull him into a false sense of security. His best bet, if he wants to challenge his suspension, is to take the matter to court.

I found that an internal Labour Party investigation is always going to be subject to corruption – the hard way.

So I took the matter to court and the verdict is due on November 24. After Labour accepted everything in the EHRC report, I’m quietly confident about the outcome.

Corbyn should do the same, and I am glad to see he is being encouraged to do so:

The problem is that, as Devutopia states, Corbyn tries to resolve matters amicably and that won’t work. He isn’t dealing with reasonable people; he is dealing with thugs in suits.

He spent five years trying to deal with these thugs in a reasonable way and the result was that he lost two general elections. We have heard that he would have won in 2017 if not for sabotage by right-wing factionalists within the Labour Party machine.

He needs to learn from that mistake. These people won’t act reasonably. They want his blood (but they’ll settle for his humiliation).

It’s time he grew the backbone that he has needed since 2015. If he had acted with strength back then, I would still be in the Labour Party, along with many other good socialists, and the UK would be (in) a much better state than it is now.

    During Corbyn’s tenure the leadership of the party was specifically excluded from having any involvement in the disciplinary procedures of the party. I believe that at the time this was done in part to protect the leadership from mounting criticisms and to maintain the ‘integrity’ of the disciplinary procedures. This being the case it would have been irresponsible of Keir Starmer to have informed Jeremy Corbyn that he has been suspended.

    However I agree with you regarding the ridiculous opaque show trial like disciplinary procedures that the party has adopted. If our criminal and civil courts operated on the same principles we’d be little if any better than DPRK. It is difficult to see how the imposed (all too often one sided) ‘secrecy’ serves the membership.

    Stammer the spammer is a Tory lapdog in a red tie he hasn’t the balls to tell a decent man that he’s getting him suspended. Coward that he is
