Recently Ellie Reeves #Labour MP was reportedly facing a vote of "No Confidence" and "Deselection" @elliereeves received a lot of support from Jess Phillips, Tom Watson etc. No motion was tabled with her CLP so the furore over a pregnant Labour MP being deselected was nonsense.
So let us move on about 1 week from this bogus story to the equally spurious #PanoramaHatchetJob about #Labour and #Antisemitism The usual suspects showed their sham horror of the apparent problems in Labour. #TomWatson #jessphillips
Tom Watson belittled, harangued, bullied and called into question the reliability and fitness of @JennieGenSec to act as General Secretary. Some might question my point on reliability etc. But the image I have attached which Watson and Phillips promote does exactly that.

If @Peston is accurate in his report of #TomWatson 's demands then @jeremycorbyn & the Leadership must reject them outright & here's why,
I believe the next GE is lost. The electorate do not vote for divided parties. Most of the voters only see #MSM including mainly @BBC .....
.....so the majority of members views won't alter the perceptions of most voters.
The choice now is between the loss of one election with a complete split of the Party or the loss of the Corbyn Project completely.
If Corbyn tells Watson to go forth & multiply then ........
........#TomWatson will go & others with him. It is vital at this point to retain the Labour 'brand' & its structure. Let Watson et al go to #Tig or wherever but not with our Party.
As I believe, the next GE would be lost but not the policies that Corbyn & the members have ...

HAVE I NOW BECOME ANTISEMITIC
I have followed the row in the UK Labour Party for the past three years and had to understand what antisemitism is and if/why it is a problem.
First, I had to educate myself about antisemitism – not being Jewish I have never been on the receiving end of it. I have a pretty good grasp of 20th century history but had to research exactly when Hitler decided to exterminate the Jews (1). e.
The Nazi Holocaust is well documented and I cannot understand how people can deny it.
Then I had to understand how it could have infected the Labour party so virulently. My father was 100% Labour – he had been brought-up in Wapping, fought the Blackshirts at Cable Street

I've absolutely had it with this 24/7 #antisemitism news cycle, which is being weaponised by elements of the Labour party and the mainstream press to undermine the Labour party and its leadership... #TomWatson
If you haven't heard @MikeSegalov on anti-semitism yet, his interviews for the #BBC and Momentum are well worth a listen
As Segalov makes clear, its right to say there are legitimate concerns regarding anti-semitism both across society & within Labour. A fringe element within Labour & most political parties = anti semitic. Also fair to say #antisemitism is being weaponised

News of #TomWatson has reached LPF. Luckily there is the all-purpose answer of a Chomsky video.
