As expected the Socialist Workers Party has published it's "critical support" for Jeremy Corbyn in the hope of picking up disgruntled supporters of the fallen messiah as they tear up up their membership cards and resign:Former left wing leader Corbyn was suspended from the Labour Party shortly after the report was published on Thursday—amid howls for his expulsion......
For the right, the report—and Corbyn’s suspension—is final proof that left wing politics is inherently antisemitic because of its opposition to Israel.
The last sentence shows how the left's obsession with so-called "anti-Zionism" has morphed into outright antisemitism and the SWP has long been a major part of the problem. Their members were notorious for shouting "ooh ah, we are Hezbollah" on demonstrations backing a genocidal Islamist movement and pawn of the Iran dictatorship a regime that they consider anti-imperialist and support despite the regimes brutal suppression of minorities. oppositionists, women and trade unionists.
The former members of Militant (now spread asunder into three competing organisations are all rallying to Corbyn's cause. The Socialist Party declares:
By suspending Corbyn, Starmer has laid down a clear challenge to the workers' movement. The choice is clear - accept having no party that represents the interests of the working-class majority, or stand up and fight!
And offers an alternative:As a starting point, the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition (TUSC), involving the transport workers' union, the RMT, the Socialist Party and others, is back in action and preparing to stand in elections next May.
The TUSC registered under 1% the last time they contested the General Election and in the local elections one of their candidates scored no votes.
The entire experience of the past five years has graphically revealed that the Labour Party right wing and bureaucracy is nothing but the organised intervention of the ruling class within what should be the party of the working class.
These big business agents have been dogged, determined, and spiteful in the extreme. This is because they represent the establishment, and know that they can rely upon the capitalist media and every other bourgeois institution to back them up. They are highly organised, and also well funded.
Socialist Appeal are part of the International Marxist tendency and in clear breach of party rules as well as in denial of the problem of antisemitism that has disgraced the Labour party under Corbyn.
Another of the organisations that have "entered "the Labour Party under false pretensions is Red Flag formerly known as Workers Power a small but troublesome Trotskyist group that openly claims to be a "revolutionary organisation" and publicises it's affiliation to a body known as the Fifth International (they gave up on trying to reform the better known and numerous "Fourth Internationals".
Clearly in breach of Labour Party rules and also joining Corbyn in clear denial of the antisemitism problem in the Labour Party they have been pushing another one of those "model motions" so beloved by the activist caste. Despite discussion of legal matters ruled out by the General Secretary Red Flag managed to push one through Easton and Lawrence Hill Labour Branch (part of Bristol West CLP). It states:
This branch notes:
1. That the Labour Party has suspended Jeremy Corbyn MP from the party and removed the parliamentary whip, ostensibly due to his statement regarding the EHRC’s report on antisemitism in the Labour Party.
2. That Jeremy Corbyn MP is a socialist and life-long fighter against racism inside and outside the Labour Party
3. That his suspension is a politically motivated attack against the left of the Labour Party by the leadership.
This branch resolves
4. To condemn Jeremy Corbyn’s suspension and demand his reinstatement to the party.
5. To oppose any and all politically motivated disciplinary actions against the left by the leadership.
6. To raise this motion with Bristol West CLP, instructing the CLP to send its contents to the Leader’s Office and the NEC.
The revolutionary left do not belong in a democratic party not just because they are separate organisations in breach of the rules but as Leninists they do not believe in democracy but would enforce the dictatorship of their party, the so-called vanguard over everyone. The road to the Gulag.....
