We were at the #Broxtowe rally today and heard first hand the attacks on the 9 Labour MPs who left our Party this week.

Here's what we think of the approach we saw from the Shadow Justice Minister, Shadow Foreign Secretary and our Leader 👇
We saw a complete absence to accept any ownership or accountability for the state we are in. No compassion was shown, no empathy, no understanding. No Leadership.

We find that really disappointing. Looking to Luciana Berger, Mike Gapes, Ian Austin, Joan Ryan it is clear....
They never felt they would ever leave Labour, they didn't want to, they were at the end of their emotional tether. They felt bullied, harassed, outraged at what they have seen and experienced.

Leadership in effect said you're wrong about how you feel, or it's irrelevant.....
Neither of those things represent the Labour values we, and the Leadership, believe in.

It's also bad politics. It looks uncaring, cold, nasty even; it's not kind or gentle.

People around the country, the voters we need, will question why heartfelt resignations are attacked....
They will question why people who have served our Party, some of them after a lifetime, have left.

And if all they see is attacks, then may will feel that the MPs who left are right. Many may draw the conclusion bullying and intolerance is the way of things. Why wouldn't they...
They'll see pro-Europeans who had no choice but to leave because the Leadership is pro-Brexit.

And as many of our supporters are themselves pro-EU, they'll ask, well why should I stay. If pro-EU voices are ignored to the point of resignation, why shouldn't I look elsewhere.....
So we call on our Leaders to stop the attacks. It is better to reflect, to listen, to see the argument from someone else's perspective. For if not, we will see more MPs, and more votes, disappear.

And we call on them to fulfil Party Policy and campaign for a public vote.
