More than one in every *three local labour parties have called on the leader Keir Starmer and his acting General Secretary David Evans, to resign.
The wave of protest began after Starmer ignored a decision of the National Executive Committee to reinstate Jeremy Corbyn as a full party member after Starmer and Evans colluded to through him out.
Despite the unanimous decision by a right dominated NEC, Starmer once again threw Corbyn out of the PLP for at least three months, even though he is officially a full party member.
Chief Whip Nick Brown has since written to Crobyn telling him that despite the NEC decision he has to admit “his errors” and make a grovelling apology. Something he knows Corbyn will not do. Corbyn is consulting with his lawyers.
Evans then wrote to all Constituency Labour Parties (CLP) instructing them that he would NOT ALLOW their members to discuss or vote on motions of support for Mr Corbyn.
CLPs who ignored his ban have seen chairs and secretaries suspended from membership and face disciplinary action.
So other CLPs have instead carried motions of no confidence in Evans. When he then banned this motion CLPs carried motions of no confidence in Starmer (and Evans as well in some cases.)
So far more than *200 CLPs, have passed no confidence motions or motions of support for Corbyn, despite attempts by regional officers to block, ban or generally frustrate members and meetings.
CLPs are now instructing their conference delegates to vote against confirming Evans’ appointment as general secretary at the national party’s next national conference.
