'Beyond stupid': Dismay as Momentum plot casts shadow over Labour

Now the Corbyn foot soldiers have tried to step in, forcing their own leader to kick the issue into the long grass.In reality, the strength and scale of the backlash from MPs and some unions required Jeremy Corbyn to act.

The summary execution of the flag-carrier for party moderates risked a leadership challenge or even a split. It also appears that the man behind the manoeuvres, boss of the Corbyn-backing group Momentum Jon Lansman, was freelancing somewhat.Indeed, other Corbyn loyalists said they were unaware of the motion, with many unhappy that the issue could now dominate conference to the detriment of other announcements.That will almost certainly happen and lays the foundation for the coming dust-up over Brexit."A pointless counterproductive fight" was how the shadow health secretary characterised it.

Momentum are labours enforcers. Watch out if you are a labour mp. Momentum are coming for you

McCluskey is in control of Labour, not Corbyn 😂😂😂

garyjhedley Same thing as I said last night. Nothing to do with winning an election and everything to do with controlling the party. Wouldn’t have a clue if they were ever made accountable for delivering anything. More than happy to protest against everything else. The Far Left never changes

Quite obvious that Jezza has had his mates in Momentum do this, partly so he can be a hero and quash it but to also send a message to Watson

Furious Labour MPs hits out at Tom Watson purge plot - ‘Totally f**king insane’Former Prime Minister David Cameron says Boris Johnson \u2018didn\u2019t want to leave\u2019 the EU before the referendum in 2016. It appears the conservatives and Labour are both being strangled by their extreme wings (Both right & left) Neither faction taking notice of what the core moderate voters want. Hence the continuing rise of the LibDems. Why doesn't Labour have a 'leadership contest'? It may not sort out the party, but at least the public would get to know the parties opinion. There again, it didn't work for the Conservatives
