Labour civil war: now the suits are trying to undermine Young Labour

Even the most jaded and despairing old socialist must take some joy from Young Labour’s decision to support Jeremy Corbyn against Keir Starmer’s continuing abuse.

The organisation within the party has published a Twitter thread as follows:

Excellent points.

What a shame that people who should know better are desperately (very desperately, as you’ll see) trying to undermine these bright folk who represent the future of the party. Take a look:

Whataboutery – and evidenceless – from somebody who is clearly too old to be a member of Young Labour.

What would that reason be, then? That JLM is a primarily right-wing movement and its members were urged to support the right-wing candidate? And that this candidate then had to withdraw after she was found to have praised the “physical attractiveness of young Nazis”?

At least the next comment comes from someone who may at least claim an interest as a young Labour member…

… but what a shame that it ignores the conditions under which Young Labour representatives are elected. They are not required to seek the opinions of anyone else because they are elected to put forward the policies on which they campaigned for election.

On the other hand, there’s plenty of genuine support, published in good conscience:

Of course young Labour members have seen what’s been going on – and they weren’t happy about it:

The distinction is clear:

If you’re opposing Young Labour’s decision to stand by Corbyn, you have to fabricate claims to justify your position.

If you’re supporting Young Labour, you have the facts on your side.

Have YOU donated to my crowdfunding appeal, raising funds to fight false libel claims by TV celebrities who should know better? These court cases cost a lot of money so every penny will help ensure that wealth doesn’t beat justice.
