Anonymous “Grassroots Left” Group to Stand in “tightest marginal seats in England” to Stop Labour Winning – Skwawkbox Exclusive.

“I am Wrath. I had neither father nor mother: I leaped out of a lion’s mouth when I was scarce half an hour old, and ever since I have run up and down the world, with this case of rapiers, wounding myself when I had nobody to fight withal. I was born in hell – and look to it, for some of you shall be my father.”

(Doctor Faustus. Christopher Marlowe).

Our so-called rival, Skwawkbox, had an exclusive this weekend. No, it is not the news that the after spending years deep in the bowels of the Earth a new leading force in Wales has burrowed its way to the surface, “Following our 2022 Congress, the Welsh Underground Network has formally become a Communist Organisation, adopting Marxism-Leninism as our way forward.”

Wales’ “largest Revolutionary Republican Movement” can go hang for all the Squawking one cares.

No, it’s an unnamed and unattributed plan to hand Labour seats over to the Tories.

Unaligned socialist plan aims to cost Starmer 1-2% of vote in tightest seats if anti-left purge continues and Corbyn and other left MPs are not reinstated

A spokesperson for the anti-purge group told Skwawkbox that after months of preparation funding is in place to stand candidates in ten of the tightest marginal seats in England, where 1% of the vote or even less would likely be enough to ensure no Labour right-winger can win it – and that while the group is not connected to any MP, no candidates will be put up against any socialist.

Parallel ‘CLPs’ – equivalent to Labour constituency groups but consisting of genuine socialists – will be set up in each seat to encourage participation and prepare for the general election campaign.

The Parallel ‘CLPs’ brings back memories.

Small businessman Steve Walker adds this from the source’s mouth,

We’re already set to stand candidates in Bury, Stoke, Peterborough and Stroud and will be ready in others soon. A few hundred votes in these seats will be enough to deny Labour any prospect of a win and in places where people are sick of having right-wing candidates foisted on them, that’s more than achievable.

This Tweeter has contacted, urgently, TUSC and Galloway’s Workers Party of Britain.

For all his huffing and puffing the self-identifying left-winger is pretty quiet on one topic. Even our highly skilled operatives have yet to find Walker or his personal minions’ defence of Jeremy Corbyn’s statement on Ukraine.

Here is the former Labour Leader’s latest Peace initiative.

Wrath is cowering.

  1. He can Squawk all he likes, Corbyn was an absolute disaster for the Labour Party, and many would say, for the moderate left generally. Politically it comes down to this, if Labour can’t capture the centre ground, they will never see government again.
