Momentum Man Takes Over Brighton Labour

Three months ago Nancy Platts, the chairman of Brighton Labour, left to work for Jeremy Corbyn. This weekend she was replaced by another Corbynista, the splendidly-named Lloyd Russell-Moyle. His politics are as red as his carrot top.

CND supporter Russell-Moyle features prominently on the Facebook page of Brighton Momentum, the local branch of the far-left campaign group. Here he is handing out leaflets with Momentum activists:

The first question for Russell-Moyle is what he thinks about Corbyn’s reported plan not to run a Labour candidate against the Greens in Brighton Pavilion, so he can protect his old friend Caroline Lucas. Will the Momentum-backing chair of Brighton CLP stand up for Brighton Labour, or give in to the Greens?

Quote of the Day

Peter Mandelson tells Emma Barnett…

“I think that Jeremy Corbyn himself should search his conscience and ask himself whether he’s the best person to lead the Labour Party into the general election with the best chance of success for the party.”
