On the 20th July 2021, the Labour Party National Executive Committee passed a resolution to proscribe four Socialist organisations: Socialist Appeal, Labour In Exile Network, Resist and Labour Against The Witch-Hunt. Anti-Corbyn activists, such as the Jewish Labour Movement, claimed that “membership of these [Socialist] groups is incompatible with Labour’s values”.
In August, the Party went a step further and began expelling those who did not support the purge, including renowned Socialist filmmaker Ken Loach, who stated on Twitter that ‘Labour HQ finally decided I’m not fit to be a member of their party, as I will not disown those already expelled.”Continue reading “Labour Renaissance – The Magnate Tendency”

As we were conducting research into individuals registered as donors to Keir Starmer, we encountered an intriguing anomaly. A donor to Starmer named Helen Rowe, on whom we have been unable to corroborate further details, had also donated £10,000 to an entity called The Labour Tribune MP’s Group.Continue reading “MARGARET BECKETT AND THE TRIBUNE GROUP: STARMER’S FIFTH COLUMN?”
We have previously documented the extraordinary campaign by Blairite elements of the Labour party and the corporate media to tar Jeremy Corbyn with the stigma of anti-Semitism (in spite of his lengthy record as an anti-racist campaigner including 50 occasions where he has stood with the Jewish community).
