FWIW, I don't think Corbyn should be suspended or expelled from Labour. I believe his unwillingness to confront A-S in the party was disgraceful. And his response to the EHRC report was awful. But I don't welcome another civil war in the party.
'Civil war' was always be necessary in Labour as long as there are far left entryists who want to use it as a vehicle to gain power. If you're not ready to go to war with these people, what you're really saying is that you're unwilling to make Labour electable. #ukpolitics https://t.co/4as6EhehLZ
It’s good news that so many of Corbyn’s far left fellow travellers are talking of leaving the party, either to set up a new Marxist party or to join the Greens The more that go, the better the prospect of Labour getting back into power
I couldn't agree more. But they won't do this in any significant numbers, they're too lame and know how unpopular they are. Their best hope has always been to infiltrate Labour to gain power. Those who leave will be back. #ukpolitics https://t.co/hCvU8IJuGd
I will strongly contest the political intervention to suspend me. I’ve made absolutely clear those who deny there has been an antisemitism problem in the Labour Party are wrong. I will continue to support a zero tolerance policy towards all forms of racism.
I’m off Twitter for half-term but this is huge story for Labour. Keir Starmer showing he’s serious about zero tolerance over anti-Semitism - including denial. Also shows he can be ruthless in pursuit of making party electable again. But will cause deeper schisms with Left.
Such a schism between Corbyn's shabby Trotskyite cultists and a Labour Party that truly believes in the values it pretends to espouse is not only long overdue, but necessary. It needs to be made permanent. Corbynites can start their own party. Or just fuck off. #ukpolitics https://t.co/VBhJ8dFk51
