Many articles detailed the bullying of sitting MP’s (and Labour Councillors)and anyone who did not subscribe to the Momentum philosophy. There is intolerance on both wings of the party, and the mutual loathing seems greater than that directed toward the real enemy. Your puerile, dismissive tone is sadly indicative of this. Perhaps you would rather the Tories than SKS?
But you are correct, despite the best efforts of Jon Lansman, who compiled a hit list of 50 MP’s, none were deselected.
A friend of mine, who had been a member of the PLP for over 40 years, and a serving councillor, was abused and spat at by a Momentum member for disagreeing with their tactics. Not quite eating babies, but pretty reprehensible.
I did link them above EIB. If you search you will find plenty of articles. I’ve cited my own experience above. Talking to the councillor, this was not an isolated incident.
I have also responded on the de-selection. Anger and the odd pint led to my error. No problem in admitting when I’m wrong.
JC, despite some errors (in my opinion) has immense integrity and I agreed with most of his policies, especially re-Nationalisation. Unfortunately, he was unable to control and shape his supporters. Just my take on stuff having watched politics since the days of Wilson.
Firstly, I'm not sure what word you were actually looking for but "puerile"?
I asked you to back your statement up. You still haven't. And now you've thrown in another accusation against the left without a shred of proof.
All the articles you linked (and the one I linked) came from exactly the same place. Getting rid of some light democratic-socialism was more important than truth, integrity or people's lives.
And you want me to back the people that did (and continue to do) that. SKS is no better than the Tories so I don't see it as an either/or.
Name the councillor who was spat at. Name the Momentum member who did it. It's obviously something that definitely happened so there'll be no worries with libel (or slander - not sure where anonymout message boards sit legally).
It's a bit surprising that the information isn't on the web though, considering the articles you linked (and the one I linked) would have been greatly enhanced by such a newsworthy item.
It reminds me of when Momentum smashed the windows of Angela Eagle's offices and then it turned out they didn't. But once the muck's been spread...
I see you've taken back your claim about deselections. Perhaps you might want to do the same about the spitting incident (many of which were also 'reported' but none of which have ever, to my knowledge, been proven).
The right of the party have removed hundreds of left-leaning members. The left didn't do anything remotely similar. As always it's the right projecting their own modus operandi onto their perceived enemies and then crying foul.
