Why are the Blairites moving against Corbyn - Chilcot REPORT!

Why are the Blairites moving against Corbyn now, with such precipitate haste? The answer is the Chilcot Report. It is only a week away, and though its form will be concealed by thick layers of establishment whitewash, the basic contours of Blair’s lies will still be visible beneath. Corbyn had deferred to Blairite pressure not to apologise on behalf of the Labour Party for the Iraq War until Chilcot is published.

It is essential to the Blairites that when Chilcot is debated in parliament next week, Jeremy Corbyn is NOT in place as Labour leader to speak in the debate. The Blairite plan is therefore for the parliamentary party to depose him as parliamentary leader and get speaker John Bercow to acknowledge someone else in that fictional position in time for the Chilcot debate, with Corbyn remaining leader in the country but with no parliamentary status.

We call on all Labour MPs to unite behind the Leadership.

If the fault line for the Tories is Europe, for Labour it is the Middle East. Those opposing Corbyn are defined by their enthusiasm for bombing campaigns. Hilary Benn and Heidi Alexander, are hardline supporters of Israel. 

Hilary Benn is very serious about his power grab and has been laying the ground for it very carefully. On 18 November BICOM – the British Israeli Communications and Research Centrepublished this:
Shadow Foreign Secretary Hilary Benn told a Labour Friends of Israel (LFI) lunch yesterday that relations with Israel must be based on cooperation and rejected attempts to isolate the country.
Addressing senior party figures in Westminster, Benn praised Israel for its “progressive spirit, vibrant democracy, strong welfare state, thriving free press and independent judiciary.” He also called Israel “an economic giant, a high-tech centre, second only to the United States. A land of innovation and entrepreneurship, venture capital and graduates, private and public enterprise.”
Consequently, said Benn, “Our future relations must be built on cooperation and engagement, not isolation of Israel. We must take on those who seek to delegitimise the state of Israel or question its right to exist.”
Heidi Alexander actually signed, as a 2015 parliamentary candidate, the “We Believe in Israel” charter, the provisions of which state there must be no boycotts of Israel, and Israel must not be described as an apartheid state. This fault line is very well defined. The manufactured row about “anti-Semitism” in the Labour Party shows exactly the same split.

No rational person would believe Brexit was Jeremy Corbyn’s fault. No rational person would believe that now is a good moment for the Labour Party to tear itself apart. Extraordinarily, the timing is determined by Chilcot REPORT.
Protest - Blair lied: Time for Truth and Justice

This is a critical period for anti-war politics. In less than ten days we will ask that Blair and his allies are held accountable for the sea of blood and tears they have caused in Iraq and the rest of the region. Be there.

On the 7th July in the evening there will be a public meeting at Mary Ward House. Speakers will include Brian Eno, Reg Keys, Peter Oborne, Louise Christian, Lindsey German and many more.

Just over a week before the EU referendum took place a news item appeared in the Telegraph "Labour rebels hope to topple Jeremy Corbyn in 24-hour blitz after EU referendum".

It's obvious for all to witness - This coup was pre-planned by the Blairites.

At this critical moment in our country’s history, the Tories look like they are extending their period of infighting and backbiting. With a government in crisis, Labour must unite as a source of national stability.

Some in the Party wish to use the confusion caused by Brexit & the timing of Chilcot to manufacture a leadership contest. This division is the last thing we need.

We have full confidence in Corbyn - sign ON-LINE petition - #BackCorbyn Protest at Parliament

We have full confidence in Corbyn

Labour Party members and supporters, appeal to all members of the Parliamentary Labour Party (PLP) to REJECT the motion of no confidence in Jeremy Corbyn tabled by Margaret Hodge and Ann Coffey.

The country now faces critical questions about the future of our economy and society.  We believe that a leadership contest at such a time would be self Indulgent and a waste of our party resources. It would also let the Tories off the hook at a time when they are bitterly split.

Over 181,120 people so far have signed an ON-LINE petition here >> in 'A VOTE OF CONFIDENCE IN JEREMY CORBYN AFTER BREXIT' 

This is a time for Labour to be united.

Britain’s vote to leave the EU and David Cameron’s resignation has caused a Tory leadership crisis. At this critical moment in our country’s history, the Tories look like they are extending their period of infighting and backbiting. With a government in crisis, Labour must unite as a source of national stability. The Party must focus on speaking up for jobs and workers' rights, counter the scapegoating of migrants and challenge any attempt to use the referendum result to introduce an even more right-wing Tory government by the back door.

Some in the Party wish to use the confusion caused by Brexit to manufacture a leadership contest. This division is the last thing we need. We call for unity and the Labour Party to offer a programme of hope for our people.

If Labour MPs move to oust Corbyn now, they would be showing contempt for the colossal democratic mandate he received from party members and supporters less than 12 months ago. 

We call on all Labour MPs to reject the motion and unite behind the Leadership.

Sign this 'Momentum' petition here:

We would also encourage all supporters who are able to attend to join the #BackCorbyn Protest at Parliament at 6pm tomorrow, Monday 27, to coincide with the meeting of the PLP.

Why you should vote to REMAIN in the EU - on Thursday 23 JUNE

Having listened to political economical hype on the EU Referendum it is now time to decide .... but while you do pause for thought. We urge group members within Respect For the Unemployed & Benefit Claimants to vote to REMAIN within the EU.

Leaving the EU would bring economic political chaos & mass unemployment, the former Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith has a track record of failure behind him.  He simply can not be trusted - he's one leading figures in the Vote Leave Campaign who is also looking to replace David Cameron.

Iain Duncan Smith & Vote Leave is asking Britain to vote LEAVE on Thursday. Lets analyse the former secretary of Department for Work and Pensions whose Job it was to reduce unemployment in Britain & get people back to work.

His polices & those of Vote LEAVE will end up creating mass unemployment.  

FACT:  the EU brings us jobs, growth and investment, protects British workers and consumers and helps keep us safe. Leaving would put that at risk and diminish Britain’s influence in the world.

Over three million British jobs are linked to our trade with the EU

And almost half of all British exports go in goods and services to countries in the European Union. Britain is a proud trading nation with almost half of our exports going to EU countries – worth over £220 billion a year to the UK economy. Over three million British jobs are linked to UK exports to the EU. UK jobs and businesses large and small are dependent on trade with Europe. The EU is the largest single market in the world and over 200,000 British companies export to the EU without having to pay any tariff. Future EU trade could create 790,000 more jobs by 2030 by opening up markets in digital services, energy and tourism.

If your lucky to be in work .... working people have a big stake in the referendum because workers’ rights are on the line. Leaving the EU puts at risk many vital workplace rights currently underpinned by EU law – such as paid holidays, maternity rights, safety at work and better conditions for part-time workers. We don’t trust our current government or brexit leaders not to cut or reduce or cut these rights if they get the chance.

With so much of our trade going to the EU, leaving would risk millions of jobs in export-reliant industries. If these skilled and better paid jobs go they’ll be replaced with worse jobs, if they’re replaced at all.

Most economists agree our economy would take a big hit followed by years of uncertainty, cutting the tax take and putting already overstretched funding for our NHS and public services at even greater risk.We want to see a Europe that helps British people benefit from a growing and fairer society, with new rights for the 21st century.

Before you vote remember this: a Vote Leave donor has been revealed to be former BNP member

Gladys Bramall has given £600,000 to Leave in recent weeks. She has reportedly confirmed she was a BNP member under Nick Griffin's leadership - but says her husband signed her up - news reference link
So on Thursday 23 JUNE vote to REMAIN in the EU Don't trust Iain Duncan Smith with our future - WE Want JOBS - our CALL real dignity & RESPECT for benefit claimants
