“Labour rebels ‘should just go’”and so should restrictions on reading about it in the Morning Star



LABOUR rebels threatening to break away and form a new centre party are “getting boring,” a source close to the Labour leader has told the Morning Star.


Reacting to the Observer’s latest front-page story about an imminent split, this time by only half a dozen right-wing Labour MPs, the source said: “They should just go. It’s getting boring.


“Every few months they pipe up with the same broken story. Honestly: just go.


But sadly, in reality, they are not going anywhere.”


The gang of six are said to be angry at Jeremy Corbyn’s stance on Brexit, Venezuela and anti-semitism.


The Observer — which often runs such stories — could only name three Labour MPs as being involved in the looming split. They turned out to be the usual suspects: Angela Smith, Chris Leslie and Luciana Berger, none of whom would even confirm if the plot was genuine.


Despite the sketchiness of the plans, Liberal Democrat leader Sir Vince Cable welcomed the report and said his party would “work with them in some form.”


The Observer also reported “a fresh row is expected in the [Labour] party over the handling of anti-semitism” this week. Ms Berger will demand Labour reveals “full details” of all complaints the party is investigating over anti-semitism.


However, Jewish socialist campaigner David Rosenberg was scathing about the motives of potential splitters. he said: “They’ve polished off old complaints about anti-semitism again and thrown them into the ring. Oh, and they have found a new one as well: Venezuela, where they seem to align uncritically with Donald Trump and John Bolton.”


Writing on Facebook, Mr Rosenberg said: “Let’s get real. This is about the Establishment media’s war on Corbyn in the light of Theresa May’s crushing defeat by 230 votes three weeks ago in the delayed vote over her Brexit plan, and their paranoia that her total mishandling of Brexit brings the prospect of Corbyn-led government closer.”


Last weekend, the Observer tried to undermine another left-wing leader with a gushing front-page story about Tory Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt rejecting the legitimacy of democratically elected Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro.
