As an independent after Starmer’s anti-democratic stitch-up

Former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has confirmed this morning that he will stand as an independent in Islington North.

The news will trigger hundreds to flock to the constituency to campaign for him in the general election – and will be used as an excuse by Starmer to expel him from the party for standing against Labour.

However, the cowardly Starmer has repeatedly broken party rules to keep him off the Labour benches and was never going to re-admit him, so it is no loss. Labour has shortlisted two prospective candidates to stand against him – a private health boss and a local woman who partied with a right-wing councillor after he was arrested for possession of the gravest category of child rape images.

Corbyn is expected to win and will have supporters lined up to help campaign against whichever of two shortlisted Labour drones stands against him, but even after decades as the constituency’s MP, nothing can be taken for granted.
