Corbyn deselection: he talks about democracy – they harp on about anti-Semitism

Motivating the masses: even after three years of sidelining and vilification, Jeremy Corbyn has more social media followers than Keir Starmer and the Labour Party put together (I’m told).

The contrast could not be more pronounced.

After Keir Starmer had Labour’s NEC vote to forcibly deselect Jeremy Corbyn as a party candidate in general elections, not just in Islington North but anywhere, the former Labour leader made his feelings about the matter clear in no uncertain terms:

His position could not be clearer: the vote – and the decision – were an insult to democracy and showed contempt for the Labour Party members of Islington North, whose wishes have been steamrolled by Starmer.

And how do Starmer and his lieutenants justify their behaviour?

They talk about a subject that wasn’t even mentioned in Starmer’s NEC motion.

Here’s Wes Streeting on Robert Peston’s show:

For the record, Streeting was lying. Jeremy Corbyn apologised many times for the focus on anti-Semitism in the Labour Party during his leadership (that he was right to say was disproportionate; anti-Semitism in Labour at the time was lower than in any other UK political organisation); he fully accepted the EHRC’s report and called for its recommendations to be enacted in full (which is yet to happen, as I understand it).

Here’s Wes Streeting on Kay Burley’s Sky News show:

It’s the same nonsense.

Let’s have a balancing view: the Alba Party’s Alex Salmond telling LBC’s Iain Dale where to get off:

That’s the fact of the matter, isn’t it?

Keir Starmer thinks that banning Jeremy Corbyn from standing, and sending Wes Streeting to trot out that fake line about anti-Semitism, will earn him points among the middle class voters of Middle England.

He’s wrong and he’ll find that out for himself in just a few weeks’ time.

    The only Anti-Semites in the labour party, is Starmer and his cronies….just look at how many
    Jews who are not zionists, have been fraudulently kicked out of the labour party!
