Brent Central CLP 'deplores' removal of whip from Jeremy Corbyn and calls for its restoration



Brent Central Constituency Labour Party has passed the following motion regarding the removal of the parliamentary whip from Jeremy Corbyn:

Brent Central CLP welcomes the reinstatement of Jeremy Corbyn to the Labour Party.

We believe that Jeremy Corbyn is a man who has for decades championed powerfully the values of anti-racism, internationalism and solidarity, as both a Labour MP and the Leader of the Labour Party. We express our solidarity to him, and all those who have campaigned for his reinstatement.

We therefore deplore Keir Starmer's unwarranted intervention to deny Jeremy Corbyn's parliamentary whip. At a time when we should be fighting the pernicious effects of austerity, privatisation and failing capitalism, this decision – which does not seem to be grounded in truth nor justice – greatly damages the labour movement.

We call on Keir Starmer to immediately restore Jeremy Corbyn's parliamentary whip.
