Corbyn to begin legal action against his Labour Party suspension

At long last, Jeremy Corbyn is doing what he should have done in 2016 – taking his critics in the Labour Party to court.

He will apply for disclosure of documents held by Labour in a hearing on Monday afternoon (January 18).

This could lead to a legal challenge against his suspension from the Parliamentary Labour Party, ordered by Keir Starmer in November.

Mr Corbyn was suspended by officials in October for claiming that the scale of anti-semitism in the party was “dramatically overstated for political reasons.”

Despite an NEC panel’s decision to readmit him [and] the Equality & Human Rights Commission’s warning against political interference in such cases … Sir Keir removed the whip.

The announcement has provoked considerable discussion on the Vox Political Facebook page.

“He should have had Hodge in court over her slurs before she knew what had hit her,” said one commenter.

Another replied: “He was doing all he could to facilitate that “broad church” they constantly whined on about.

“However, I have no reason to see why he shouldn’t win the upcoming court case which I hope will achieve much in the middle to slightly longer term in our battle to reclaim the party for the socialists it was created for and not as a hiding place for desperate LibDems.”

Another commenter, discussing the launch of Ken Livingstone and Pam Bromley’s judicial review against the EHRC, added: “Things are going to go tits up for Starmer and Co, and it can’t come quick enough.”

    We had our chance and flunked it. Yet to have him has leader would have already put things back but alas his own party lead him up the garden path and stabbed him in the back numerous times yet now he’s taking them to court but the damage is done by these cronies
    Mud sticks so they say it should have stopped when BBC was showing him has anything but a glorious leader even the other channels done their dirt but to those who stabbed him in the back well done I hope karma will bite you in the bum
