Last night I finally received a letter ending my suspension from the Labour Party after 14 months. I was suspended because in my role as Bristol West CLP Secretary I allowed a meeting to take place at which a motion was allowed to be heard in support of Jeremy Corbyn.
When I was suspended I was the Secretary of the 2nd largest CLP in the country, I was a Bernie Grant Leadership Program graduate, a Unite BAEM Political School graduate & a Bristol City Councillor candidate for the local elections that took place last May. I had spent hundreds of
Hours campaigning for the Labour Party in local and general elections across 10 constituencies across the South West from Gloucester to Falmouth and I had essentially dedicated my life to the party in order to fight for a better world. The vast majority of CLP officers who were
Suspended for exactly the same reason as me were reinstated many months ago, including my own Chair and Co-Secretary. I hadn't heard anything from the party in 11 months. What was it about my case in particular that justified me being singled out for this treatment? What does
This imply about the party's treatment of BAME activists in particular? Why did Keir Starmer use footage of himself canvassing alongside him in his leadership campaign video, and then sit back whilst I was targeted for unique disciplinary action in what appears to be a
Politically motivated attack on a socialist activist?

Whatever the case I am pleased to finally be readmitted. Good be back comrades.
