We are publishing here a model motion that Socialist Appeal supporters will be proposing at Labour Party branches and CLPs, Momentum meetings, and trade union branches across the country. We call on all our readers to pass similar motions in their areas. #KeepCorbyn! #DeselectThem!
We are publishing here a model motion that Socialist Appeal supporters will be proposing at Labour Party branches and CLPs, Momentum meetings, and trade union branches across the country. The motion condemns the actions of the Blairite back-stabbers and calls for their deselection. Instead of such sabotage against the democratically elected leader, we must focus the fight against the Tories and their programme of austerity.
This branch / ward / CLP notes that with the Tories in crisis and a general election likely by the end of the year, now is one of the best opportunities we have for securing a Labour government.
We are dismayed and angered by the antics of a section of the Parliamentary Labour Party who have sought to undermine our democratically elected leader Jeremy Corbyn. We condemn the actions of those former members of the shadow cabinet who instead of fighting the Tories have sought to undermine Labour by plunging the party into crisis.
172 MPs backed a motion of no confidence in Jeremy Corbyn. We express a complete lack of confidence in these MPs. They are completely out of touch with Labour Party members and supporters, nearly 60% of whom voted for Corbyn in September 2015.
We therefore resolve to fully support Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership of the Party, and condemn the actions of those MPs seeking to overturn his democratic mandate.
We call for deselection of these MPs as representatives of the Labour Party in Parliament and call for them to be replaced by elected representatives who are willing to faithfully represent the democratic will of the Party membership and the interests of the working class.
