So the anti Corbyn machinery is going into overdrive as the end of the contest draws near.
I see they’ve wheeled out Neil Kinnock again with a whole panorama programme for him to rant and rave and doom and gloom about Jeremy Corbyn so brace yourselves for that and it seems that Dispatches over on Channel 4 have used their selective media techniques and journalistic tricks to try and paint momentum as some sort of hard left infiltrators hell bent on destroying democracy; fortunately those of you who have recently joined momentum and attended their meetings will know the real picture.
They are well organised and have an agenda to support Jeremy, but he needs organised support to fight against his detractors.
From Hillary Benn first appearing to tell us all that although Jeremy is a decent chap, he isn’t a leader, the irrelevant vote of no confidence led by Margaret Hodge, the staged resignations, homophobic and anti-Semitic smears, all the vitriolic articles fed to the right-wing press and the forced leadership rerun.
Wheeling in the so called big guns of Kinnock, Miliband and Gordon Brown to try and convince us.
Shutting down CLP meetings and disenfranchising new members and charging them £25 to vote, and the members being labelled Trots, bullies, militants, Nazis, anti-Semitic and heaven knows what else were all highly planned and organised by Campbell, Mandelson and other Blairite bigwigs propped up and supported by Portland.
If not for momentum helping the members to organise Jeremy’s successful leadership campaign, he may not have had the impact that he has up and down the country.
I for one decided to support Jeremy months ago and my determination to see a more fair and equal society where no one and no community is left behind has been entrenched and become more determined by watching the two-faced backstabbing hypocrites in the PLP try their best to undermine me, and him.
I thought Clive Lewis was great on Marr, try and watch his appearance if it’s posted. We’re nearly there, when Jeremy becomes leader, everything will change and our new politics will start to go forward.
It will be the end of blue labour and the start of a new era in politics.

Unity is a big word in Labour right now but with senior, veteran Labour MP Alan Johnson sharing his opinion Saturday that officials who do not support Corbyn should keep rebelling post the leadeship election it looks to be a one-way street.
Challenger Owen Smith likes to call himself a unity candidate but at a local event he gave the impression unity was the last thing on his mind.
Disunity seems to be the order of the day for the anti-Corbyn gang who childishly cite the fact that Corbyn has refused to obey the party whip many times down the years.
He however did so because of honest principles while they will do so out of spite.
