Corbyn fans issue ultimatum to Luciana Berger

by | 7th, July 2017

Tough times for Labour MP Luciana Berger. The Liverpool Wavertree CLP is now run by Jeremy Corbyn loyalists. One of their number, Roy Bentham, has a warning for Berger:

“Luciana needs to get on board quite quickly now. She will now have to sit round the table with us the next time she wants to vote for bombing in Syria or to pass a no confidence motion in the leader of the party – she will have to be answerable to us.

“We would like her to come out publicly like other MPs have done and apologise for not supporting him in the past.”

There will be no dissent in Corbyn’s brave new world. You don’t represent the people; you represent Momentum and their agenda.

The Telegraph adds:

…the dynamics at work demonstrate the extent of the Labour party’s sinister new normal, in which tones of anti-Semitism are ubiquitous.

Not word on racism in the Guardian. But this:

A Momentum group in South Tyneside posted a list on its Facebook group of 49 MPs, including Chuka Ummuna and Chris Leslie, that they said should leave Labour to “join the Liberals”. The post was taken down and disavowed by the national movement, which is working to dispel the idea that it wants to see MPs deselected.

Are you right or are you wrong?

Chris Williamson, a strong supporter of Corbyn and a shadow minister, said there were “interest groups and individual MPs in this party who think it’s their God-given right to rule…

“Where I think critics of mandatory reselection are mistaken are in trying to view the Corbyn phenomenon through the lens of the 1970s and 80s, when the militant left was small and ideologically driven. Today, the bulk of Labour’s new members don’t see the new politics as left or right, they see it as a matter of right or wrong.”

Take on Corbyn and see your career ended.
