Admin Suspension means I can't attend AGM of the NEC, to which I have just been elected, at Liverpool conference next week. No link of course to my appearance in @AJIunit
's #LabourFiles series exposing multiple abuses within Labour. First one out tonight. Not to be missed! 2/3
If you've missed the airing of #LabourFiles, here is a little snippet from our news coverage.
The full-length investigation will be uploaded tomorrow.
"Oh, my word."
Some of the words from our contributors as they encounter the #LabourFiles.
As you watch #LabourFiles tonight keep in mind that 4 hours ago Starmer’s Party suspended a Jewish woman from their NEC for being a socialist.
The shocking thing about #LabourFiles on Al Jazeera is that the entire UK mainstream media remain not just silent about the abuse it evidenced, but are 100% complicit in it
Breaking: Al Jazeera (@AJIunit
) has obtained a massive new trove of Labour Party documents which expose the Israel lobby's thuggish role inside the party. #LabourFiles https://t.co/1GQZqwEN0j
If you are confused about why so many Labour Party members active between 2015 and 2019 feel such animosity to the party they worked so hard to get into power, watch the #LabourFiles to see how we were betrayed, vilified, lied about and in some cases threatened. It's shocking.
After watching the #LabourFiles investigation on @AlJazeera
. I brought back some of lowest points in my life. I brought back attempted suicides due to Labour's persistent attacks on me. They tried to grind me down. My mental health, family and job were all affected.
As an ex-employee of the Labour Party I can genuinely say that nothing in the #LabourFiles surprises me.
The party bureaucracy is primarily concerned with protecting their factional mates, rules are never applied consistently, and overt bigots are rewarded with top jobs.
The man on the left had a letter signed by 29 leading Charedi rabbis, defending him.
The man on the right has waged war on labour Jews and removed more from the party than all previous leaders combined.
Who's the antisemite? #LabourFiles https://t.co/fKAkekC32u
The Al Jazeera #LabourFiles documentary will be triggering on many levels.
Sad & angry in equal measure.
Many good people treated appallingly throughout ‘The Corbyn Years’- not least the man himself (& still today!!!) - simply for wanting a country that worked ‘For The Many’.
It’s the human cost of the smearing on #LabourFiles that’s difficult to overstate. When I was smeared across Twitter, it made my stomach turn inside out, I couldn’t sleep, you don’t know what to say or do, it’s so disconnected from who you are and what you stand for. Brutal
The fact @OborneTweets
is such a key figure in #LabourFiles documentary lends it real credibility, Oborne is not @uklabour, he’s not a socialist and he’s no friend of the anti-establishment left, but he is an honest and very credible journalist.
Absolutely nothing in tonight's #LabourFiles surprised me. It is why I feel so angry and hope-less much of the time. But it is cathartic to see what we knew was happening but were repeatedly told wasn't happening documented so clearly.
Every single "journalist" who reported lies about Jeremy Corbyn needs to watch the #LabourFiles & apologize
That was a good first part of Al Jazeera's #LabourFiles.
Three main takeaways.
1) The Labour right has never tried to fairly compete with the left. It was always secret dealings, slander in collaboration with the press, and plotting helped by the corrupt party bureaucracy.
Israel lobbyist and Labour NEC member @lukeakehurst
intervened to protect right-wing party activist Luke Stanger from expulsion, despite credible accusations of harassment and abuse. #LabourFiles https://t.co/1GQZqwEN0j
The #LabourFiles on @AlJazeera
revealing how #JeremyCorbyn & his supporters were undermined at every turn by the @UKLabour
right wing and how that campaign continues under #KeirStarmer today. Really interesting to see if any of it is reported in the UK media, I suspect not!
Seriously think I'm having PTSD, watching #LabourFiles. We went through every *day* of this
Just like for those poor people interviewed by #AlJazeera this has been a traumatic number of years. While we *paid* them they were cheating & scamming us. Fuck them all
Just finished watching the first part #LabourFiles on @AlJazeera
The length that the right wing go to is actually frightening. I found I couldn’t breathe at times. Then I remembered what they did to me. After reading report I understood why. I cried for days. Feel awful.
Wow. Just wow! #LabourFiles
The revelations in #LabourFiles reveal that the worst, most anti-democratic cretins are now in charge of a party that could well win the next election.
Seriously, watch #LabourFiles if you can.
Al Jazeera are finally telling the truth about the scum who sabotaged Labour.
It's so weird to see a real documentary about this, when the entire UK media and PLP gas-lit us all for years.
Former Brighton Labour activist Damian McCarthy was harassed online, over the phone and even in person by anti-Palestinian activist Luke Stanger -- who was protected by NEC member Luke Akehurst.
McCarthy's father died not long afterwards:
Thanks to Jeremy Corbyn, I was proud to become a member of the Labour Party. Today, I wouldn't piss on the Labour Party if it was on fire.
Anyone who watched the #LabourFiles will know why.
#LabourFiles #AlJazeera Keir Starmer absolutely would behave this badly in power. @OborneTweets
Shockingly bad behaviour endorsed up to the highest levels. Disgusting
Absolutely horrific viewing. We all knew the whole anti Jeremy Corbyn agenda was organised. But to see apartheid israel operatives behind it is just horrendous. And to think our media continued the lies and smears 🤮🤮🤮
At last the dirty tricks used by leading Labour bureaucrats to purge loyal and decent members from the party are exposed in Al Jazeera’s #LabourFiles. Until now most of the media has been silent on this. It’s important it be generally known that this has been going on.
Al Jazerra #LabourFiles I would say I’m shocked but I’m not. There’s zero difference between Tories and Labour. Both are corrupt. There were some heartbreaking scenes. Activists defamed and life’s torn apart. They will never get my vote. #LabourCorruption destroys life’s. https://t.co/8yPwzuQrR1
Think we can start countdown to Al Jazeera being attacked as antisemites, for being journalists & doing their job with #LabourFiles investigation
Expect the usual suspect smearers to be out in force at 9pm tonight. And never forget #ItWasAScam to prevent a socialist Labour Gov
