Starmer says Corbyn ‘undermined’ party on antisemitism and refuses to restore Labour whip

Starmer says Corbyn 'undermined' party on antisemitism and refuses to restore Labour whip

Sir Keir Starmer as intervened with the readmittance of Jeremy Corbyn into the Labour Party, refusing him the whip even though he was cleared by the NEC for wrongdoing.

Keir Starmer has decided not to readmit his predecessor Jeremy Corbyn as a Labour MP, arguing that he has undermined efforts to restore the party’s reputation in the Jewish community.

An NEC disciplinary panel lifted the suspension of Corbyn’s party membership on Tuesday. That decision was made after he issued a conciliatory statement “clarifying” remarks he made when the damning Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) report was published.

But in a strongly worded statement on Wednesday, Starmer said he would not be welcoming Corbyn back into the parliamentary Labour party (PLP).

“Jeremy Corbyn’s actions in response to the EHRC report undermined and set back our work in restoring trust and confidence in the Labour party’s ability to tackle antisemitism,” Starmer said.

The hypocrisy is that one of the accusations into the antisemitism report was that the Leadership intervened in antisemitism stating: Labour disciplinary investigations are supposed to be independent of the party leadership.

Members should understand Sir Keir Starmer is not Leader of the Labour Party to challenge the establishment, he is there to uphold the status quo.

Maybe it really is time for a split, a new Party worthy of the people, one prepared to challenge this rigged system and bring equality and unity to a broken land.
