The plot to oust Jeremy Corbyn as leader of the Labour Party by 172 Labour MPs is a rather nasty squalid affair.
You could say that their act of disloyalty is on a par with the kind of treachery display by Burgess, McLean, Blunt and Philby.
Blairitie plotters have in the shape of Angela Eagle decided to act because they aren’t happy the way the Labour Party is run.
The coup is nothing to do with the EU referendum result apparently they have been plotting to remove Corbyn more or less since he was elected as leader on a popular mandate.
In the past, the threat to the Labour Party was militant, now the threat to democracy in the party is Blair faction.
So, what is the Blair faction, these are middle class people who don’t represent the values of the working class people anymore, they think they are an elite who are there to ‘manage’ people, in effect the views of the people don’t count.
Labour MP David Lammy expressed this sentiment beautifully as he said; that Parliament should simply ignore the result of the EU referendum.
With the Tories signed up to the hilt for Brexit under new PM Theresa May, the Blair faction want to try and scupper the will of the people.
Emotions are running very high, the Blair faction want to exclude Jeremy Corbyn from standing as a candidate for leader in a rather shobby attempt to deny him natural justice.
Now, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has had to call for calm following brick attack on Angela Eagle's office.
Some time ago, I said that politicians had alienated people so much in Europe that violence was on the horizon, not just against migrants but also the political class.
You can read this as part of my analysis that Europe is heading towards civil war and a rise in domestic terrorism; basically we will see a ‘race war’, violence bloody and brutal.
Angela Eagle as well as getting a brick through her window has also received death threats, politics provokes emotion, and robbing people of their democratic leader could see Angela Eagle and the other 171 Labour MPs who are against the Labour membership also in the firing line.
There is to be a key meeting of Labour’s national executive committee to discuss whether or not the party leader’s name will appear automatically on the ballot paper. If Corbyn is not allowed to stand this goes against natural justice.
Jeremy Corbyn has been quick to condemn the attack on Angela Eagle’s constituency office, he said:
“It is extremely concerning that Angela Eagle has been the victim of a threatening act and that other MPs are receiving abuse and threats. As someone who has also received death threats this week and previously, I am calling on all Labour Party members and supporters to act with calm and treat each other with respect and dignity, even where there is disagreement.”
The Labour leader added:
“I utterly condemn any violence or threats, which undermine the democracy within our party and have no place in our politics.”
As well as the criminal damage, Angela Eagle has her own more personal troubles; her local party members want to de-select her after the Wallasey Constituency Labour Party urged her to support Mr Corbyn.
The Labour Party members should de-select all 171 Labour MPs involved in the coup against Jeremy Corbyn, no one can trust them and no one should be willing to do a single day of activism for them again.
It is looking increasingly likely that events may force the Labour leadership contest into the Courts.
Unite general secretary Len McCluskey said it would be "alien to the concept of natural justice" if Mr Corbyn was blocked from defending his position, something which the union warned would "leave a stain on party unity that might prove permanent".
Lawyers acting for Jim Kennedy, a trade union member of the NEC committee, have written to party general secretary Iain McNicol warning they will take "injunctive action" unless Mr Corbyn is automatically included.
Solicitor Martin Howe said:
"Our clients are very concerned that the purpose of the special meeting is to manufacture a situation whereby Jeremy Corbyn's name will be omitted from the leadership ballot. That is wholly unacceptable."
The coup by the Blair faction has split the Labour Party wide open, if it does end up in the Courts and Jeremy Corbyn is denied natural justice, then the Labour Party will have a ‘leader’ with no mandate.
One thing is certain, this episode will end very badly, the membership must start the process of removing all 171 Labour MPs by de-selection; no one should enter public office by way of a sordid nasty fix which appears to be the position of the Blair Faction.
As to Angela Eagle……. She doesn’t have a future in the Labour Party, her own party members will move against her and de-select her, one thing she can be sure of that will be natural justice.
