Labor leadership: Rebecca Long Bailey appoints STALINIST to run leadership bid – Express.co.uk, Express.co.uk


LABOR leadership hopeful Rebecca Long Bailey hired a Stalinist to run her campaign for Jeremy Corbyn’s job which in turn has sparked a feud with John McDonnell as the hard-left battle to retain control of the crumbling party.

Ms Long Bailey has appointed Alex Halligan to head her leadership bid , the same man responsible for Mr Corbyn’s successful rise to the top of the party and a well-known organizer in militant union Unite and Momentum. Mr Halligan, in his s, was in 2017 pictured wearing a badge that read ‘Good night Trotskyite’ and an image of a man wielding an ice pick at another in a reference to the assassination of Soviet Union revolutionary and Marxist Leon Trotsky. He was also pictured in a firm handshake with Unite boss Len McCluskey.

The move has sparked a row between Ms Long Bailey and Mr McDonnell, Labour’s shadow chancellor who wants more involvement in the matter.

A Labor source told The Times: “Stalinists should have no place in the Labor Party.

“The fact that this man has worn a Stalinist badge in public will be of concern to Labor members.

“Rebecca Long Bailey must reassess who is advising her, to reassure members that she is not simply a continuity candidate.”

It comes as Ms Long Bailey joins an array of hopefuls for the top job to replace Mr Corbyn following the disaster election result.

Angela Rayner, Keir Starmer and Emily Thornberry are also in the running.

But former Labor leader and prime minister Tony Blair said despite this the party is doomed to fail.

The eurosceptic savaged the Labor Party in his appearance on Newsnight claiming its future was brought into doubt while “the far left has taken over”.

He questioned the party’s ability to take part in “mainstream” politics and the motives of the left wing figures in the p arty in a stinging attack.

Speaking on the BBC program he outlined his view of the party in the wake of the disastrous election results: “The far left that has taken over the Labor Party, if they remain in a position of authority, if they’re in charge of the Labor party going forward, The Labor Party, I think , is finished. ”

Going further, Mr Blair outlined what in his opinion, needs to change.

He said: “It’s not a question so much of expelling people, It’s a question of taking the Labor Party back for, what I would call, sensible mainstream labor politics.

“And that includes, by the way, a traditional left of the Labor Party.

“But that traditional left that stands in the shoes of Nye Bevan, Michael Foot, Neil Kinnock, John Prescott, that is a different left from these guys. ”

He also insinuated insidious intent to hoard power claiming “the problem with th e far left, the people – you know you mentioned some of them just around Jeremy Corbyn and so on – the trouble is, they want to take the Labor Party over.

“They’ve been engaged in a four-year process of taking it over. They’re not gonna share power. ”
