There are so many tales of Labour Party suspension out there.
Some people have managed to get that suspension lifted allowing them to vote in the ongoing leadership election and attend conference if they planned to.
Others are not so lucky.
"Jim was a Labour Councillor for 34 years on the County, Borough and Parish; he was also a Labour Parliamentary Candidate in Milton Keynes in 1983; a Member of the National Policy Forum for 10 years; a Party Conference Delegate on five occasions; a member of his local CLP, EC and GMC and a Political Education and Black and Minority Officer."
But there is more.
"He is also an ex full-time GMB London Regional Officer of 8 years standing and involved as National Executive of the University and College Union for nine years."
Jim is 73-years-old and registered disabled.
I came across Jim Thakoordin on Facebook when he angrily shared news of his suspension from the Labour Party.
Jim had planned on going to conference and had already booked his accomodation meaning that you can add financial pain to his anger and hurt.
Jim wrote "Suspended from the Party after 53 years as an activist, including PPC in 1983 and Councillor 34 years. The suspension took place forthwith from last Friday, just over 2 weeks since I had a heart operation, and with no proof and no right of appeal before 24 September, as well as declaring my vote for Corbyn 3 weeks ago, null and void. Also banned fron being a CLP delegate at Conference and holding any office within the Party. The hotel has refused to refund our £504 in booking."
Jim has received support from friends and some comrades and has replied:
THANK YOU COMRADES. I AM TOUCHED BY YOUR KIND SUPPORT. LET US SHOW THE PARTY BUREAUCRATS WHAT WE ARE MADE OF.
"Thank you comrades for your encouragement and support. It is on such occasions we know who our real comrades are. Together we are stronger. The fight has been started by the Party bureaucrats and those opposed to Corbyn and the majority of Party members who are behind Corbyn. It is our duty to fight back. Those who are opposed to Corbyn within the PLP are seeking to force changes and so called unity, on their own terms, which would result in neutering Corbyn and his socialist dreams. We cannot turn back now, we must push forward. No compromise on Party democracy. Party members are the life blood of this Party and so say ALL OF US. In solidarity always."
If that is contentious I am the Queen of England.
Most online friends suspended from the party are fighting back but at least one has simply resigned and that is not because she is guilty as charged.
It is because aged 70 plus, with a range of problems including poor health she is unable to take any more.
I hope the Labour Party and its General Secretary Mr Iain McNicol are proud of themselves.
