Opinion: Labour List is an online publication allegedy supporting the Labour Party.
If you look at a cross section of its articles you may find it difficult to accept it supports the Labour Party.
Still the party is allegedly a "broad church" but sadly many of those on the right-wing of the Labour Party use that term but only mean it when it suits them.
Take a look at the following from Labour List Thursday.
Labour First, the centre-left group, has revealed plans to raise funds to recruit a paid organiser to resists the Corbynistas when a series of key grassroots votes kick off in January.
The language of the article is biased and divisive.
It is not posted as an opinion piece but is littered with opinion.
It gives a valuable online opening for Labour First which in my opinion has little to do with the Labour Party.
It is more about one man, Luke Akehurst, his masters and his vision for the Labour Party.
Akehurst has busied himself attempting to defeat and remove Jeremy Corbyn from his role as Labour Party leader. But Mr Akehurst, in spite of underhand tactics, failed to win a seat on the NEC in the latest round of elections.
But one thing about Mr Akehurst is his consistency.
He has simply said he and his gang will keep at it until Jeremy Corbyn is removed as party leader. They will push for a return to old new Labour, the politics of 1997 until around 2008.
Off all the people who have been suspended from the Labour Party surely Luke Akehurst, who remains a member of the party, is the most deserving of expulsion?
I do not personally know the man but I have been told by some who do he is vile and bitter. I also do not read Labour List these days but I am thankful some do and share. I am also thankful to those who brave high blood pressure by subscribing to Labour First to keep an eye on what Mr Akehurst and his band of anti-Corbyn, anti-party-democracy friends are up to.
The latest share comes by way of a Jeremy Corbyn supporter.
This is her reaction to Labour First's latest newsletter which we have shared in part below:
I've been fuming about this over night. Its so hurtful and divisive to all of us members, never mind about poor John McDonell. I think now is the time to send this Labour First e-mail in with a formal complaint to the party. Print it off take it to your CLPs, get the matter on the agenda and make them put through a formal complaint! Email from Labour First 30th November:
Mr Akehurst and Labour Party Deputy Leader Tom Watson paid a visit to Israel recently.
Days later Tom Watson was a guest speaker at Labour First's annual meeting Saturday November 26, 2016.
The two men appear linked in many ways. Does that mean both are trying to remove Corbyn?
We need to put in formal complaints and NOW. Many members have been suspended for much less.
Why is Mr Watson apparently working hand in glove with Luke Akehurst? If he is not it is way past time he put distance between himself and Labour First. The right-wing of Labour have pushed for Jeremy Corbyn to remove himself from some groups as Party leader, the same rules must apply to Mrs Watson as Deputy Party leader.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to formally complain.
Mr Akehurst being his usual anti Labour self on Twitter Thursday -hilarious arrogance too.
All things Corbyn
