One of the handful of left-wingers to walk out of today’s chaotic Labour NEC meeting – which readers may be astonished to learn is still going on – was Mish Rahman, who took to Twitter after the Zoom-based protest to explain his action:

Our walkout from the NEC today was to remind him of this, and to send a message that we will not put up with petty and repeated attacks on trade unions and members.
Unfortunately for Mish, one co-conspirator who followed the NEC election gets in touch to point out the irony of his participation in the walkout: his election slogan? “Don’t walk away.”
