My mother and I are currently members of the Labour Party and since we recently moved to Ludlow, this is our local branch. However we regret to inform you that we would like to cancel our membership with immediate effect and be removed from all party email lists. I have just writtent to John McDonnell to express my vehement opposition to the stance he has taken re: the recent incident in Salisbury. I have included here a copy of my letter, to explain our desire to resign from the party:

We are writing to express our disgust with your appeal to Labour MPs to no longer appear on Russia Today. As a result we have decided to immediately cancel our membership of the Labour Party. We are also highly unlikely to ever vote for the party again, and certainly not in its present incarnation.

Our decision is not entirely related to this particular action, as there have been other disappointments. For the most recent example, we were dismayed by the terrible treatment of Ken Livingstone for merely stating something which is a historical fact. This strikes us as the most cynical betrayal of someone who has been a fine servant of the party, purely to satisfy the histrionic bayings of pro-Israeli factions.

As for the Russia Today issue, this is problematic for two main reasons. Firstly, and most superficially, it has been clear for some time that freedom of speech is under concerted attack from politicians frightened by their growing inability to control the Overton window. Russia Today does a fine job in providing a critique of neoliberalism and a foreign policy dominated by US interests. They are no less objective in this than any of the other corporate media ventures who incessantly promote the opposite. We would include the BBC in our bracketing of the corporate media, as the BBC Trustees and Board members are overwhelmingly drawn from major corporations and can be trusted to behave accordingly. This is continually reflected in the highly selective and superficial, and often downright untruthful coverage of current affairs that the BBC and its brethren provide. Russia Today is not perfect, but it is considerably more accurate and trustworthy than any other of the British corporate media outlets. However, even if this were not the case, the principle of freedom of speech alone should prohibit the kind of grandstanding dictat that you indulged in yesterday.

Our second reason for objecting to your statement relates to the link to the incessant demonisation of Russia that has been building to a crescendo since Putin came to power. One of us is a lecturer in political economy, and has detailed insight into the political and economic history of the post-war era. Any truly objective appraisal of geopolitics, and particularly since 1990, would conclude that the primary aggressors in the European theatre and elsewhere have been the US and its allies, amongst whom we are a major player, to our eternal shame. All the promises made to Gorbachev not to expand NATO up to Russia’s borders have been broken, and NATO and the EU together have indulged in a steady stream of wanton provocations of Russia which would be laughable in their childishness if they were not so concerning in their implications. Putin is guilty of little more than pushing back against the plunder of the Russian economy that was facilitated by the West in the 1990s, and reasserting Russia’s power, which he is entitled to do. As for this latest incident with the poisoning, it seems that the principle of being innocent until proven guilty is the latest in a line of casualties in the vindictive pursuit of Russia for the crime of being a sovereign state. A more objective perspective would conclude that the Russian state has nothing whatsoever to gain from the poisoning of a spent force who has already served time in prison. It is far more likely he was killed as a result of offending some underworld character. In any case, it is more likely that the substance itself came from Porton Down, where VX was developed in the 1950s, as I am sure you are aware, which also suggests another motivation for his killing. The anti-Russian narrative simply does not make sense. Even if it was a state-instigated murder, the hypocrisy of the British government is breathtaking, when even a cursory acquaintance with the history of MI5 and MI6 would reveal a catalogue of assassinations and secret coups.

To conclude, when Jeremy Corbyn was elected we, like so many others, were hopeful that this would herald a change in the neoliberal and imperialist narratives that have dominated British public policy for so long. However we see our mistake. In our opinion, Corbyn’s Labour party is not significantly different to be worth supporting, and when it comes to foreign policy the differences are cosmetic indeed. To say we are disappointed would be an understatement.

Yours sincerely

Anna Zimmerman

As someone who generally votes Labour, I was disappointed that there was no wreath laid by a Labour representative at yesterday’s Remembrance Sunday ceremony in Ludlow. This would have conveyed an unfortunate message to all those present as there were wreaths laid by both the Lib Dem and Conservative parties.

There were people from all walks of life and all ages at the event which was conducted in a spirit of respect as well as sadness and in no way did it glorify war. There were, no doubt, others who shared my disappointment and would appreciate an explanation.

Dear colleague,

My name is Jerry Weber and I am the chair of Warwick & Leamington CLP. I was also the agent for Matt Western at the General Election in June where we pulled off a remarkable victory and overturned a Tory majority of 6,500.

I am standing as a non-aligned and independent candidate for one of the CLP places on the NEC.

I am standing because I am very concerned about the continuing rift and discord within the Party. It really is time we put our differences behind us and started to build a party to offer the electorate a real alternative. The Party needs reforming. I will be committed to open processes and transparency in dealing with difficult issues such as suspensions and expulsion from the Party.

I hope that you will be holding a nomination meeting and that you will support me and give an independent voice a chance to be on the ballot paper. Although I am a member of the Co-operative Party, I am not aligned to any other group. I believe that CLP representatives on the NEC need to be independent and not dependent on groups such as Momentum and Progress.

The NEC is our key body that directs the future of the Party. If elected, I will be a grassroots member of the NEC.

Check out my flyer on Facebook

I look forward to your support.

Best wishes

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to Julia. I know everyone worked hard but I hope she stands for Parliament again. She’s such an inspiration. It takes courage to stand these days, especially when social media can be so vile.

I just wanted to say that I was going to vote Lib Dem yesterday, having to vote ‘tactically’ to get the Tories out. Of course in Ludlow it’s a safe seat so I wanted to make my vote count. However when I met Julia yesterday she changed my mind and persuaded me to vote Labour – a party that my ideals are much more aligned with anyway. I am so happy to see today that Labour have come second in our constituency. Julia you are a credit to the party and I wish you all the best!

Just want to wish Julia good luck! I will be voting for her as I feel she is a strong candidate and support the Labour manifesto, although my heart is Green!
