It is time to talk about the elephant in the room - Labour Party suspensions. Around 8,000 people according to some.
There may be many reasons some members are still suspended from the Labour Party, stuck in limbo, but a lack of useful, pertinent information to those affected is just one cruel aspect of this sorry state of affairs.
Legal concerns and matters may be part of the problem but we members are just ordinary folk. We are not in it for the money, the power and the glory.
We have our own life stresses and strains. When we opt to commit to a political party we deserve some respect.
People join for many reasons and yes some do so mischievously. But the majority join the party to show support and pay for the privilege.
In some cases they work their socks off trying to get the Labour Party message out and representatives elected. If they then respond angrily on social media using a word that the party machine has suddenly decided is off limits, such as TRAITOR, do they deserve suspension?
When the party has trawled back over time following anonymous complaints regarding party members the affected member is scuppered.
But as previously stated if you feel a person has betrayed you or broken a promise TRAITOR is a very fitting word.
Those MPs who vowed to support Mr Corbyn when he was elected September 12, 2015, but did anything but, fit that category to perfection.
But as #LabourPartyPurge2 drags on tempers are fraying and people are resigning - enough is enough and who can blame them for quitting.
A sensible way forward would be an amnesty of sorts. The abuse timer reset, as after all in many cases it was simply angry debate and not abuse.
That would allow a date to work from. No more trawling back over social media just a clean slate and new era following your re-election in 2016.
Allowing the current situation to drag on is destructive.
It means people listen to Chinese whispers and gossip. That results in more anger and the downward spiral circle continues to whirl out of control. It is not rocket science.
It makes some conclude the party is still split, that a further leadership challenge could follow and it provides the mainstream media with ammunition all making Labour's electability a distant dream.
For the sake of us all we need to hit the restart button.
With so many factions working against each other little wonder people are 'speaking with their feet' and resigning.
Who will respond to this open letter? Will anything change for the better in 2016? Or is the Labour Party just too big for its boots now.
Party suspensions need putting to bed. Time to move on and work toward election success with all hands to the pumps.
The writer is not suspended. But she has Labour values which means she cares about those that are. Do you Mr McNicol?
I am barely able to type this post because I am shaking so much. I have just now received an email from Iain McNicol telling me not only have I been denied a vote in the Labour leadership election but that I've been suspended from the party and prevented from holding office within Labour.
The pain in every word is genuine and heartfelt; the same is true of friends who have empathised and expressed support such as:
And Monday Philip Lewis, already suspended from the party, received details of his offending Tweets on Twitter but it appears the tweets were not his!
"Today I received the tweets reason why I'm suspended and no not my acc.mine @philewis and my cat @philewis_lenin."
Did he retweet? Should that even be relevant?
Piss up and brewery spring to mind and not for the first time.
Trouble is suspensions will not be reviewed until after the leadership election denying many people a vote and in some cases for nothing.
All things Corbyn
