Today I'm no longer a @UKLabour member. This short thread explains why, for anyone interested.
1) Twice, I couldn't vote for @jeremycorbyn in the Leadership elections. Of course Iain McNichol & his undemocratic team that said 1st - I'd posted a Green party tweet & 2nd -
(1/..)
2nd I'd said word the Blairite on Twitter, didn't stop my direct debit from being collected.
In June I posted a sarcastic tweet about the state of @bbccomedy & propaganda -
Thanks to @georgegalloway RT this became MSM news & many celebs /actors called me an anti Semite, liar & conspiracy theorist -
2 weeks of hassle then followed as David Baddiel, BBC employees, actors and TV people called me anti Semitic etc. I wrote about the experience here -
medium.com/@DylanStrain/b…
From April 2017 I campaigned for @RosieDuffield1 to be the 1st MP for Canterbury in the #GE2017.
Wearing @jeremycorbyn t-shirts daily at work (I have 4) I spoke to many people, did 3 @UKLabour stalls & tweeted 24/7 for #JC4PM.
She was successful done to Jeremy, student & the
manifesto. 18 months later she threatens to go on strike if @jeremycorbyn doesn't implement IHRA in full. I don't like her whole approach to being an MP. These are some of her responses. Calls me a liar, anti Semitic & not a proper member -
@MikeBland210434 chose her almost alone to be the @UKLabour candidate for Canterbury. In Sep 18 he gives his account at CLP meeting of why he chose her & why Hugh Lanning the excellent trade unionist was not put forward. Clear as mud. 5 weeks on from strike action, the CLP..
haven't spoken face to face with @RosieDuffield1 or had a proper discussion about her conduct. There isn't a proper democracy at Canterbury CLP.
On Nov 3rd I was due to do a comedy night at Whitstable Labour Club for Palestine. Now I may have been tough with my Tweets, regarding Rosie Duffield & Mike Bland, but they were honest.
Yesterday I get an email saying PSC people want me off my own night -
I haven't got to the bottom of this yet, as to why.
2 weeks ago I gave a KTV interview about @RosieDuffield1.
This is, @RosieDuffield1's response. Classy.
Equally classy is her campaign manager @MikeBland210434. Calling me a liar -
I've said my piece about @Labour4C and now it's up to them to decome democratic. I've gone into the sleeping pigeon shed and ruffled feathers, now hopefully they will move forward.
I'm still reporting the Secretary and Rosie Duffield for saying I'm anti - Semitic, a liar etc.
I will probably rejoin whenever the next General Election is called.
I'm leaving Canterbury soon so a new CLP beckons. Thank goodness.
So, for now I quit @UKLabour to devote more time to real democracy working with @democracyOK & doing more stand - up.
I'm 46, the 1st time ever my vote counted for something in my life and I get a Red Tory.
We get the politicians we deserve.
There is very little democracy in England. We've got 15 years before tipping point with climate change -
