WOW, Mike Gapes and Joan Ryan are non-Labour JLM conference attendees discussing disciplinary processes with Keir Starmer and Angela Rayner but not a privilege afforded to the people who pay the wages of the party machine. #LabourLeaks #StarmerOut #LFI jewishvoiceforlabour.org.uk/article/saying…
So what should Peter Mandelson talk about at the recent Jewish Labour Movement conference – his worries that an independent process will hamper the party leader Keir Starmer?. #LabourLeaks #StarmerOut #LFI
Mandelson “was there in the 1980s and understands where the power bases of the right are, and how it should be exercised”. Who needs independent processes or oversight when you are in the driving seat?. #LabourLeaks #StarmerOut #LFI

Keir Starmer's donor Sir Trevor Chinn funded BOTH Labour Friends of Israel AND Conservative Friends of Israel to ''Get Brexit Done'' He sits on the Executive Committee of the Britain Israel Communications and Research Centre (BICOM). #LabourLeaks #BICOM en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trevor_Ch…
Conservative Friends of Israel and BICOM, there is a huge amount of co-ordination. Many of BICOM’s key figures play roles in the CFI. A driving forces behind both lobbies. David Cameron also accepted £20,000 from Trevor Pears in his leadership election. powerbase.info/index.php/Cons…

The Jewish Labour Movement was revived in 2015 to battle Jeremy Corbyn.

A right-wing organization with intimate ties to the Israeli embassy, JLM claims to have been affiliated to Labour for a century.

But a transcript of an undercover recording, casts doubt on this narrative.
It indicates that the dormant Jewish Labour Movement was revived by political allies of Israel as a weapon against Corbyn, the left and the wider Palestine solidarity movement. #LabourLeaks #StarmerOut

The lady doth protest too much. Ruth Smeeth, one of the 60 plus anti-Corbyn resignations from the shadow cabinet, formerly held a post with the lobby group, Trevor Chinn's Britain Israel Communications and Research Centre (BICOM). #StarmerOut #BICOM #JLM wsws.org/en/articles/20…
The attempt to remove Jeremy Corbyn was being spearheaded by right-wing supporters of former Labour leader Tony Blair. These forces, who aim to either take over or destroy the Labour Party are working in intimate collusion with the security services in Britain and overseas.
The former head of MI6, John Scarlett, joined the board of the Times in 2010, the year after he left the Secret Intelligence Service. Keir Starmer's lunch partner Sean O’Neill was lead reporter and published this in 2016, “How leadership is taking its toll on ‘paranoid’ Corbyn”
