    I have no idea why she remains in the party. She should form a new one with the other centrists as they appear to hate her for being a Jew, and calling out the Labour party over the Antisemitism.

    Faces moves by local activists eh! Once known as a a pogrom,I have no truck with the Israeli govt and the treatment of Palestinians but targeting of individual Jews is wrong.
    To paraphase one of our last great political leaders Winston Spencer Churchill "Never in the field of British politics and Brexit was so much expected by so many of so few......only to be bitterly disappointed"

    This is the way internal democracy works within the current Labour Party. Momentum, consisting of Corbyn and McDonnell's harlequin of Trot, Communist, Marxist and Socialist henchmen decide that an MP or Councillor is using their democratic right of free speech too freely and 'let it be known' to the local 3 a year extremists to start the 'deselection pressure process'. There follows a period of coercion, bullying and intimidation including death threats. Kate Hoey has been through it and now its Luciana Bergers turn.

    Let us just remember these extremist local activists form a small percentage of those who might vote Labour, and such rational and moderate voters will be increasingly disgusted by Corbyn and Momentum's 'political cleansing'.

    It is the beginning of a slippery slope of democratic compromise.
