Bridget Prentice Resigns from “Corbyn Cult”

Bridget Prentice, a Labour activist for 45 years; as a councillor, MP and government minister has resigned from the party. In her resignation letter she accused Jeremy Corbyn of “pandering to the baser views of racists”, allowing anti-semitism to flourish and turning the Labour Party into a cult.

“Never in my life in the Party has a leader not been criticised, questioned, asked to justify a position – and rightly so. But that’s not allowed under the Corbyn Cult. Anyone questioning the leadership’s position is vilified; complaints sent in to the disciplinary panel like something out of a North Korean rulebook that disloyalty to the leader is a criminal offence.”

The full letter is a corker. She says the party should change its name.

“It is no longer the party of Hardie and Attlee and Blair. It is no longer the party that upholds the values of social justice and fairness in our society and an open and welcoming view of the world. This is no longer the Labour Party. You should change its name.”

Ouch…

Boris responds to Tusk…

“I don’t want a No Deal Brexit but I say to our EU friends if they don’t want No Deal they have got to get rid of the backstop from treaty. If Donald Tusk doesn’t want to go down in history as Mr No Deal Brexit then I hope this point will be borne in mind by him too.”
