Exodus of Labour moderates to pre-empt purge

Moderate Labour MPs, angered by plans by Jeremy Corbyn’s allies to deselect them, are poised to stand down, triggering a string of potentially damaging by-elections.

A party insider said MPs were prepared to quit after Corbyn’s allies signalled that they wanted to purge critics of the leader and change party rules to strengthen their position.

The news comes just days after the MP for Liverpool Wavertree, Luciana Berger, was threatened with deselection by hard-left activists unless she apologised for criticising Corbyn.

Snuggle down on your bed of nails, Blairites: you made it yourselves

My personal vat of sympathy is not infinite. I keep it by the garage and it’s topped up from time to time by a firm based in Maidstone. But in this searingly hot weather evaporation is a real problem. And sometimes I scoop around in it with my ladle and the ladle comes up dry.

So it was last week when I tried to find some sympathy for moderate, or Blairite, Labour MPs. They say they are being “bullied” and “intimidated” by the Trot-Snowflake Momentum caucus that now runs the party and would, if there were an election tomorrow, run Britain.

A fairly jubilant caucus, then. It has also been reported that there are moves afoot to deselect some of these poor moderate moppets, people like Luciana Berger and Thangam Debbonaire. So, the ladle goes in. And the ladle comes out bone dry. If ever a bunch of people were getting their just deserts, these are the ones. And if there were any issue on which Corbyn, John McDonnell et al were morally and practically totally in the right, beyond all argument, this is it.

      Dont u get it.

      The gen election result had nowt to do with a certain JC. It was all down to the efforts of the cllrs and cronies backslapping each other. Lol

      Their motto is only to mention JC when its to denigrate him with the discredited blairites and gutter press. As it fits in with their inward looking views.

    She like her pals was slagging off manifesto and corbyn for going off cliff edge during election.

    She should move on and take Browns advice and stick to window dressing.
