That’s the list I’ve seen. No doubt a few will be able to satisfy us they had excuses for not helping Theresa May’s war criminals. But I doubt many will. CLPs throughout the country need to start preparing to deselect any of them incapable of explaining why they helped the Tories and their disgusting Saudi Arabian dictatorship chums.
Labour voters and members have plenty of reasons to get rid of unelectble MPs who have learned nothing from the last two landslide victories of Jeremy Corbyn. No socialist wants to have anything to do with these people. We’ll certainly not be queuiing up to reelect them when they give us nothing but grief, helping the Tories every chance they get.
Abstaining on the Yemen vote is in certain respects just one more reason for deselect them. But it’s one of the best I can think of. Topicality matters. And voters will be disgusted in them, as will Labour members who just delivered a vote of no confidence in these Blairite bastards.
These MP have made it clear they have every intention to split Labour any day now. I could be wrong, but I think it’s quite likely they’ll choose Tony Blair to be the corrupt war criminal who will lead their split party, lead them and a large number of Tory MPs, as well as 100% of Lib Dems MPs. Lead them all into the next election. I think they’ll help Theresa May call a snap election, and Tony Blair will be the Prime Minister of choice of these who want a government committed to defending the Single Market. An electoral pact before the general election; a grand coalition after it, hoping to wipe Jeremy Corbyn’s candidates out in the process.
Socialists have our candidate for Prime Minister. We now need to flesh out our manifesto. And we urgently need to select candidates who are electable, ones loyal to the Labour party membership, as well as our democratically-elected choice for Prime Minister. Passing votes of no confidence in this riff raff of Saudi Arabian dictatorship cheerleaders is a very good way to start our preparations for the next general election.
