Ignore the rumours: Jeremy Corbyn's supporters aren't after a factional fight this party conference. This is only the start of a transformative processby Richard Seymour / September 25, 2017 / Leave a comment
“Will Jeremy Corbyn use the Labour conference to stamp his authority?” asks the BBC. For the Labour ‘moderates’ the answer is “yes.” John Spellar, MP for Warley and signatory of the Henry Jackson Society , is terrified that they are going to “storm the conference, create the atmosphere they are the overwhelming tide”. They punished him with forty years of boredom; now he takes Brighton.
Spellar, and his allies, seriously need to get a grip. For all the fear and loathing emanating from Progress and Labour First, this conference will not see the Bolshevik-style takeover by young sovietniks that the Labour hard-right are fantasising about.
