The Campaign for Labour Party Democracy (CLPD) stands fully in support of the Labour Party, its Leader Jeremy Corbyn and its General Secretary Jennie Formby, against the unfounded allegations being made against the Party and its disciplinary processes.
Contrary to suggestions in the media that antisemitism is ‘normalised’ within Labour, the opposite is in fact the case. The Party leadership and General Secretary are totally committed to the elimination of all forms of prejudice, including antisemitism, across society and also where such views exist within the Labour Party.
There is no complacency within the Labour Party on these matters. Overwhelmingly complaints are handled with the seriousness they deserve. New, efficient, fairer processes for investigation have been introduced, as outlined in Jennie Formby’s message here to the Parliamentary Labour Party. Further improvements are also due to be made.
There is a desperate need for a change of government in Britain. The Party, its members and MPs, are urged to step up the campaign against the Tories and defend Labour from all unjust attacks.
