Anti-Purge Campaigners Try To Change Party Rules


CAMPAIGNERS are urging constituency Labour parties to submit a rule change to the annual conference to stop the expulsion of members for no good reason.

The proposal would not be heard until next year’s conference, even though the deadline for submitting proposals is July 7 —  two weeks from now.


The Stop the Labour Purge campaign says hundreds of party members were expelled and unable to vote in last year’s leadership election.


It wants to remove a rule allowing exclusion of anyone who “joins and/or supports a political organisation other than an official Labour group or other unit of the party.”


Those expelled under the rule have no chance of appeal.


Stop the Labour Purge said: “Given the necessity of political breadth, it is inevitable that Labour will be an organisation in which there is a constant and healthy discussion and contest of ideas and policies.”
