Richard House: the Tory-lite rump in the Labour Party continues to get smaller and smaller.

Richard comments on the resignation of Liverpool Riverside MP Louise Ellman

 

Louise Ellman is quite right, Corbyn isn’t remotely fit to rule the kind of Blairite neoliberal polity that she and her ilk are wedded to. The discredited ‘New Labour’ party of which she used to be a member has now thankfully been jettisoned into the dustbin of history where it belongs. 

Like countless thousands of other Labour Party members, Richard rejoices that Jeremy Corbyn has no intention of running that sort of pale-blue Tory-lite government that the ruling class establishment successfully ‘bought off’.

Her frequent accusations of anti-semitism have been discredited in a dossier recently published by Jewish Voice for Labour which may be read here

This JVL investigation details clashes between Liverpool Riverside MP Louise Ellman and Constituency Labour Party members, including Jews, who say they have been the victim of baseless allegations of antisemitism, wild charges based on a contested interview recording and a scurrilous dossier posted anonymously on a far-right blog. This and much more is backed up by 16 appendices in the report including interview transcripts, letters, email exchanges, reports and submissions.

For the first time, the silenced voices of members of Ellman’s constituency party can be heard countering the uncorroborated attacks on them in the BBC Panorama documentary Is Labour Antisemitic? broadcast in July.

The Liverpool Echo reported the Labour leader’s ‘hero’s welcome’ at packed city centre rally four days ago

Liam Thorp commented, “Mr Corbyn won’t have any problems retaining seats in Liverpool” – despite attacks from the opposition, mainstream media and those disloyal MPs who have consistently sought to undermine this popular leader including deputy Tom Watson and Jess Phillips – who spoke with impunity about stabbing Jeremy Corbyn.

Richard House ended by rejoicing that the Tory-lite rump in the Labour Party continues to get smaller and smaller and many who have watched, aghast, the merciless three-year onslaught by these disloyal Labour MPs, will share a sense of relief at their defection.
