Momentum Behind Long Bailey

MOMENTUM have this weekend pledged to ensure that the hard left remain in control of Labour.

In a statement the left wing faction said - “This leadership election will decide the future of our party.”

“We are planning a huge people powered campaign to make sure Labour is led by a new generation of left wing MPs.”

A steering committee statement added - “Rebecca Long Bailey is the only viable candidate to build upon the socialist agenda.”

The news comes just days after Jess Phillips was forced to suspend an aide for describing Israel as “a murderer that was inflicting Holocaust conditions on Palestinians.”
