I am very saddened that seven MPs have felt the need to leave Labour. As I have warned for months, I am concerned this split could keep Labour out of power for a generation. I hope we can reflect on this moment and don’t just knee jerk condemn these MPs.
I continue to believe that the Labour Party is the most powerful vehicle for progressive change in this country. However this is a moment for deep pause and reflection. We have been far too slow to tackle anti-Semitism in our party. We have failed to oppose Brexit.
Moving forward I hope we can contain this split by reaching out across the political spectrum in the Labour movement. Providing a platform for the likes of Tony Benn to Alan Milburn, our party has always succeeded as a broad and inclusive church.
