[On our main site we have two new posts pertaining to the so-called #LabourPurge2 and the farce it has become or maybe it always was? "Labour Party adopts ASDA practices re member suspensions" and "Since when was the word traitor so abusive? The following is from Di Coffey suspended from the party and follows her receipt of the requested SARS paperwork]
"Today I received my Subject Access Request (SAR) details and it appears my Facebook posts did not, as previously stated by [Iain] McNicol, bring about my suspension. It was my tweets and re-tweets that brought about my downfall.
I attach pics and apologise for none of my comments except that had I noticed the words, "angela eagle rat", I would not have re-tweeted it. All my tweets and re-tweets were made in response to the despicable conduct of those Labour MPs who have venomously attacked Jeremy Corbyn from the moment he was first elected as leader in September 2015.
If my tweets and retweets have been considered so abusive as to warrant my suspension, I am very glad I recently made the decision to quit the party and spare myself the ordeal of defending my online comments at a regional tribunal.
I still cannot believe the party I have supported for decades has been responsible for closing down freedom of speech for its members while giving full rein to Corbyn's PLP detractors to bad mouth him on TV and in the Tory press.
The 'old guard' NEC and Iain McNicol have a lot to answer for.
UPDATE: Someone kindly pointed out something I had missed. The words 'Angela Eagle rat' were words the snooper software translated from the words, 'Angela Eagle' and 'rationale'. So I hadn't missed the word "rat" after all. Gawd - it's beyond a farce now.
Note from the Editor:
We are Di Coffey and stand with her and others treat so shamefully. SOLIDARITY
Di Coffey is currently suspended from the Labour Party-caught up in a silly, conveniently "for the right-wing of Labour" timed, purge of party members. That suspension excludes her, and others in a similar position, from attending the Labour Party conference or even local meetings. It is proving a good way for anti-Corbyn elements in the party to "fix" conference to suit.
Tuesday Di has shared:
"The anti-Corbyn Labour MPs continue to express their opposition to him - further strengthening my view they would rather see Labour lose the next general election than support him in any way.
Jeremy Corbyn, Denis Skinner, John McDonnell, Tony Benn and others, vehemently opposed the policies of several of their leaders but they NEVER viciously briefed against them in the press or in interviews on TV.
Like so many, following Jeremy's victory on Saturday, I've been on a roller-coaster of emotions.
Many comrades at last night's Momentum Falmouth meeting expressed the same feelings but we found strength in each other's company and we were soon back in a positive mood planning next Saturday's Labour National Campaign Day on education and other issues.
There will be a Labour stall in Falmouth Moor on Saturday, October 1 between 10.30 am and 1.00 pm. Sadly, I can't be there because I've been suspended but if you are in Falmouth do come and chat to my chums who will be handing out leafets on Corbyn's Ten Pledges and discussing how these pledges will help Cornwall."
So if you are in Falmouth this weekend do what Di says and drop by for a chat. If nothing else it will help dispel the mainstream media and right-wing view being pushed that Momentum are somehow a bunch of loony hard-left extremists.
But if you have fallen for that view you really need to think outside the box and take off those blinkers.
