And here’s the letter in full:

Dear voters of Islington North,

We have been proud members of Islington North Labour Party for many years. Together, we have campaigned on a wide range of issues, from defending the local Number 4 bus route to saving the local hospital’s A&E. These campaigns have united members from all sides of our Party, and we are proud of the collegiate atmosphere that we have created. In many ways, Islington North CLP was the genuine broad church that the Labour Party claims to be.

This year, we have been denied the right to choose our own candidate for the General Election. Not a single person in Islington North has had a say. We believe in democracy – and the people of Islington North deserve an MP who believes in democracy too.

Jeremy Corbyn has dedicated his life to this constituency. We hear on a regular basis from people how Jeremy has been there for them in their time of need, whether that is housing, education or anything else. He has always worked in partnership with our progressive Labour Council, both as a Labour MP and as an Independent MP.

We have been proud to stand alongside Jeremy over the course of 10 General Elections. This year, we will be campaigning for him as an independent candidate for Islington North. Many of us have already resigned or been expelled from the Labour Party as a result. Those of us who are still in the Party know our support for Jeremy will result in the termination of our membership. We do not take this decision lightly, but it is time to take a stand in the name of democracy and justice.

We will campaign on the same principles we have always had. That includes ending all privatisation of our NHS in order to restore the principle of free, public and universal healthcare.

Jeremy has always been an honest, brave and principled voice. We need that voice now, more than ever. We implore Labour voters to support Jeremy Corbyn as an independent candidate, and vote for him on the 4th July.


Alison McGarry (CLP Chair) Bisi Williams (CLP Vice Chair Membership) Gill Lawton (CLP Vice Chair Membership) Ruth Clarke (CLP Women’s Section Secretary) Steph Linkogle (CLP Vice Chair Campaigns) Sarah Doyle (CLP Secretary) Oliver Durose (CLP Assistant Secretary) Martin Franklin (CLP Environment Officer, Tufnell Park ward delegate) Michael Rowan (CLP Communications and Social Media) Gillian Dalley (Tollington Ward Chair) Diane Reay (Vice Chair Tollington Ward) Kate Buffery (Junction Ward GM delegate, Local Campaign Forum) Peter Murray (Treasurer, Junction Ward) Jonathan Gore (Ward Organiser, Highbury) Cassie Mayer (Hillrise Ward GM delegate) Sophie Maisey (Hillrise Ward GM delegate) Ginette Williams (Hillrise GM Ward delegate) Jan Whelan (Hillrise Ward GM delegate) Mica Nava (Tufnell Park Ward GM delegate) Dr Azhar Malik (Tufnell Park Ward GM delegate) Jeremy Maher (Tufnell Park Ward GM delegate) Annette Thomas (Tufnell Park Ward GM delegate) Tony Graham (Highbury Ward GM delegate) Simon Hin.

This could be electoral dynamite.

It tells voters that the Labour candidate is simply not worth supporting because he does not have the backing, even of Labour Party members in the constituency.

Instead, they are being advised to support Jeremy Corbyn’s Independent campaign by the people who used to run the Constituency Labour Party – the chair and secretary are both signatories.

This should be a huge boost to the Corbyn campaign.
