As ‘Coup’ Against Jeremy Corbyn Threatens the Hard Left Moblises its Troops.

Weekly Worker Editorial Board Deciding Corbyn’s Strategy.

Senior Labour MPs are plotting to oust Jeremy Corbyn if he is elected party leader, amid growing fears that the leadership contest has been hijacked by far-Left infiltrators.

Shadow cabinet sources have told The Telegraph that Mr Corbyn would never be allowed to remain in the job long enough to fight the 2020 general election, if he is elected on September 12.

A coup could be launched within days of the result, which would plunge the party into even deeper crisis and division, but would be necessary to prevent an electoral “disaster” under Mr Corbyn’s leadership, senior figures said.

However, a growing number of Labour MPs believe Mr Corbyn’s campaign is being boosted by tens of thousands of radical Left-wing socialists who have paid £3 to sign up as an “affiliated supporter” in order to vote in the election.

There are reports that Unite, the country’s biggest trade union, which is backing Mr Corbyn, has been telephoning 1,000 people a day urging them to register with Labour and back their preferred candidate.

One shadow cabinet minister told The Telegraph a coup would be inevitable if Mr Corbyn is successful.

Reports the Telegraph.

On the 6th of May Seamus Milne announced:

The Tories are plotting a coup in the name of legitimacy.

Fleet-footed the People’s Assembly acted (7th of May):

Stop the ‘Tory Coup’.

Ipswich followed the lead.

Cde Milne swiftly replied:

We beat off that coup!

Our troops, after recruiting thousands of new Labour Party supporters,  are ready again!

  2. Tens of thousands, mmmm, I presume all those crafty lefties have been sleepers until the great day looms. There was me thinking our annual conferences were held in a top secret phone box. Another dastardly tactic of the great leader, whom I have been reliably told is embedded under deep cover within Ukip.

    I realise your all milioniaes in Suffolk and one expects you to be well dressed, unlike us peasents down here, but the photo of the local militia on parade look more like whites than reds to me.

  4. I’m surprised there is a carpark large enough even in Iswich to hold all their ZIL limousines;)

  6. I notice that “Tendance Coatesy” is publicly ridiculing the Peoples Assembly once again, which is rather annoying, given that its author Andrew Coates edits the contents of our Facebook page .

    The gist his latest satirical rant appears to be that there is no real threat from the Labour right if Corbyn wins the Labour leadership election. He infers that those on the left who think there is are akin to stalinists or red guards. Evidently democratic demands don’t come into it.

    He dishonestly uses a link to a National Peoples Assembly article on May 7th that has nothing to do with what he’s writing about.

    This was an article written before the election results were known, warning that the Tories might try to stay in power, even IF Labour and the SNP had more seats in Parliament and calling for a protest outside Downing St “ IF THIS HAPPENS”

    Since the Tories won the election with an absolute majority it DIDN’T happen, but IF it had, organising such a protest would have expressed the democratic will of the majority.

    As has happened more than once before, his piece has been reposted approvingly by the Tory blogger Kevin Algar, a failed council candidate who pompously describes his own blog “ A River side View” as “East Anglia’s premiere political blog”.

    Admittedly very few people actually read either of these, but the fact that Seamus Milne of the Guardian picked up on Coate’s article shows that some do.

    Were cde. Coates actually to have stated that he supports Jeremy Corbyn, or done anything about it, his attempt at political satire might have been acceptable.
    But as yet, there’s no evidence that he does, or has.
    Which makes his lame satire unacceptable from someone who claims to be a supporter of the Peoples Assembly.

  7. We publish this strange communication, from John, as part of our long-standing safe-spaces policy.

    Tendance Coatesy is a safe-space environment, “A place where anyone can relax and be fully self-expressed, without fear of being made to feel uncomfortable, unwelcome, or unsafe on account of biological sex, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, cultural background, age, or physical or mental ability; a place where the rules guard each person’s self-respect and dignity and strongly encourage everyone to respect others.”

    Unfortunately we have to draw attention to the use of unacceptable language by the ‘People’s Assembly’ – John – about disabled people, “lame”.

  8. It is inappropriate that someone has attacked this light-hearted blog piece in the name of Suffolk People’s Assembly. Fair enough to express that rather humourless opinion in a personal capacity, using one’s own name, but it should not be done in the name of the group as a whole. I write this as the secretary of a very active People’s Assembly branch, but one who knows the difference between speaking for myself and speaking for the organisation. I am disappointed that anyone would regard satire and self-parody as unacceptable in the People’s Assembly movement.

  9. Who on earth is the Suffolk Peoples Assembly person? I would not like them to represent me in any way, what with that person being a complete wanker. As it is I didn’t find the original post particularly funny, but the SPA persons response was.
