A fellow Corbynista comrade informed me yesterday she’d been blocked from a Facebook group predominately populated by Blairites who didn’t like her advising them they shouldn’t be carrying on with any campaign to undermine Jeremy Corbyn & the Labour frontbench, yeah well it doesn’t surprise me that no matter how stronger Labour now are post GE2017 Blairites were still going to continue with plotting to undermine Jeremy Corbyn, in fact I was very much expecting them to no matter how much weaker their position within Labour now happens to be, but the question I have is why it is we never hear about any Blairite being slung out on their arse from Labour for continuously attempting to oust Jeremy Corbyn as Labour leader?
Though Alastair Campbell has been eating humble pie for being very wrong about Jeremy Corbyn bringing electoral ruin upon Labour, I’ve as yet not heard an apology from Peter Mandelson or Tony Blair for all the shit they’ve said about Corbyn since he was elected Labour leader, in fact why hasn’t there been any serious moves to expel Tony Blair from Labour for suggesting in the run up to the general election just gone that peeps voted for the Liberal Democrats or to expel Peter Mandelson for having said publicly said that he plots to undermine Jeremy Corbyn practically every day?
No Blairite is being threatened with expulsion from Labour for having encouraged party infighting & trying to undermine the leadership thus not helping matters etc in the run up to GE2017, but guess who is being threatened with expulsion? Yep the answer is yours truly, I got a letter the day before polling day saying I’d been suspended from the party & that pending an investigation I could face further disciplinary action, it did kind of feel a bit like thank you for campaigning for Labour but now go fuck yourself for thinking for yourself.
Of course the charge is I’ve bought the Labour Party in disrepute, it appears on the basis that I’ve a selfie of myself & Jeremy Corbyn on my Twitter profile with the tag ‘vote Labour’ & thus somehow linking Labour to the questions I asked about the London Terror Attack.
Err anybody can have their photo tagged with that ‘Vote Labour’ moniker there’s a Facebook enabling them to do so & use it as a profile photo on social media & proceed to post whatever remarks they want on Twitter or wherever else on social media, so what are the Labour Compliance Unit going to do to contravene the right of free speech on all those peeps with ‘Vote Labour’ photos who aren’t Labour members & might also being saying stuff they don’t happen to like because it challenges peeps to think differently.
I have thought of leaving Labour in the past few days, because it’s like I can do without whoever trying to bully me into not asking the questions I feel need asking & not being a Labour member wouldn’t prevent me from doing anything I’m currently doing or I’m planning on doing, I mean its no skin off my nose if they chucked me out & it would just prove the Labour Party are too authoritarian for their own good upon the very essence of freedom of thought, which is why I’m actually going to fight this if need by requesting a full disciplinary hearing if need be, this for me is about telling the Labour Party they don’t own my fucking mind & have control over what I think.
If we are bullied into not being able to freely ask questions then we really are falling into an Orwellian malaise, but regardless of Labour being all very Orwellian when it comes to inhibiting free speech, it’s the hypocrisy which stinks just as much, I refer you to the beginning of this article because it’s obviously some are being treated very differently to me & yeah it stinks like a motherfucker!
