Labour to Sweep Twenty Scottish Seats According to Corbyn

Labour to Sweep Twenty Scottish Seats According to Corbyn

His comments come a day after the ruling Scottish executive committee (SEC) torpedoed a bid by both local party branches and former leader Kezia Dugdale to commit the party to remaining inside the European single market.

One member said he was reading Adolf Hitler's book Mein Kampf, adding: 'Everybody should be forced to read it, especially Jews who have their own agenda as to why they were not liked'.

According to Collier, Corbyn was a member of the "Palestine Live" group at the time he was elected leader in 2015, and was a prime mover in the group, which hosted people such as Max Blumenthal, a controversial speaker accused of anti-Semitism.

Later responding to Mr Corbyn's speech Ms Slither said there was "no Left-wing case" for leaving the single market adding: "If we want to fund our radical manifestos to deliver governments for the many, not the few, we must support permanent United Kingdom membership of the European single market and the customs union".

At the 2017 General Election, the Labour Party's unexpectedly strong showing saw it seize highly affluent areas in the south of England and London that had never before been held by Labour, such as the seats of Kensington and Canterbury.

Ms Stihler said Brexit was the biggest challenge facing the country today, and there was "simply no left-wing argument for leaving the European single market" as it protected workers' rights.

They said: "Jeremy and the Labour party are implacably opposed to all forms of anti-Semitism and will take whatever necessary action to stamp it out in the Labour party".

But until he understands that the political culture of which he is a leader fosters the very anti-Semitism he claims to condemn, this problem will only get worse.

Mr Leonard, who backs Mr Corbyn's position on the single market, insisted that the party was not denying its members the right to vote on the issue.

That decision is likely to be approved by delegates, which would mean the motions would not be debated.

The Labour leader said that we should stay in a customs...

He told the BBC it would be a "mistake" to "throw all our eggs in the basket of saying the Scottish Labour Party supports full membership of the single market" while negotiations were ongoing.

The motion supports shadow Brexit secretary Sir Keir Starmer's "six tests" for a deal to leave the EU - including whether it delivers the "exact same benefits" as being members of the single market and customs union.

And he will accuse the Conservatives of forming a "divided government that has no clear idea of what it's doing, what it wants, or where it's going".

"Make no mistake about it, reduced access to European markets means fewer economic opportunities for people in the United Kingdom".

The head of the UK Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, and BBC reporter Yolanda Knell were allegedly members of an invite-only Facebook group through which virulent anti-Semitism was promoted.
