1. Blairites have had more than enough chances. After their botched coup against Jeremy Corbyn in 2016, he handed out an olive branch gave them jobs in the Shadow Cabinet.

What have they done since?

Plotted and schemed behind his back and voted against him in Parliament
2. When Blairites led the NEC they purged hundreds of enthusiastic pro-Corbyn members and banned new members voting in internal elections, yet as soon as someone mentions “deselection” Blairites panic and accuse their opponents of bullying - and in some case antisemitism
3. Blairites continuously attack Jeremy Corbyn, his supporters and Momentum, yet expect their support in local and parliamentary elections. Momentum should refuse to campaign for toxic candidates who are nothing more than self-indulgent Red Tories
4. Blairites recently used an antisemitic trope to describe pro-Corbyn left-wing Jews by labelling them “bad Jews”. They have weaponised antisemitism to silence critics of Israel and joined the Tories to use the recent antisemitism rallies in London to attack Jeremy Corbyn
5. Blairites have shown they are against a Jeremy Corbyn-led government and some have even publicly told people to vote Tory or Lib Dem. No action has been against them, but they expelled pro-Corbyn members for retweeting the Green Party, SNP, George Galloway and the Foo Fighters
6. After today’s disgraceful decision to expel black activist Marc Wadsworth, Blairites have got to go. They need deselecting and replacing with candidates who are in politics to make a difference and not enforce their own self-indulgent agendas
7. Many of us are angry at the treatment of Marc Wadsworth, Jackie Walker and Ken Livingstone - true socialists who joined Labour to make a difference, but all the while Blairites remain they will keep Labour in opposition for as long as possible
8. If Blairites put in the same effort attacking the Tories as they do Jeremy Corbyn then Labour might have won the last election. Millions of people need Labour in power; only Jeremy Corbyn’s social reforms can transform Britain ending inequality, corporate greed and capitalism
9. The Tories’ economic murder of the poor and the disabled continues, as does their destruction of the NHS and public services. Blairites are complicit. Last year, they had the opportunity of ending it by getting Jeremy Corbyn in power, but they chose to help Theresa May instead
10. Those of us who are struggling financially because of low pay, cuts to welfare or cuts to public services are the ones who are being made to suffer - and not one of the heartless Blairites could give a shit, because they see people like us as “hard-left thugs”
11. Now is the time for change. Blairites have shown that they don’t want a socialist government in office which hands power back to the people. New Labour was built on the foundations of Thatcherism and lost 4 million working class voters between 1997 - 2010
12. I am sick to the back teeth of Blairites playing the victim, yet getting away with abusing ordinary members of the public on social media and in the flesh

For the sake of Labour’s electability and for Britain’s future, Blairites have got to go
