In addition to the purge of Corbyn supporters, the Blairite group Labour First is also trying to bias the national conference against the Labour leader. Mike on Saturday put up a piece commenting and urging his readers to look at an article post by J Simpkins on his A Blade of Grass blog. Luke Akehurst, the general secretary of Labour First, who was massively defeated in his campaign to get elected to the NEC, has taken the step of writing to the constituency Labour parties that voted for Smudger, urging them to send motions to the national conference next year. These motions will be the policies and arguments Smudger wants to get across. The whole point of this exercise, it seems, will be to get them passed by the Conference in defiance of Corbyn’s own leadership.
The Blairites really don’t stop. It seems there’s nothing too low, no dirty trick they won’t pull, to thwart Corbyn’s leadership and the hundreds of thousands of his supporters in the party.
