In this article I will provide an evidence chain confirming that “Labour First” are plotters, and that they were responsible for compliance referrals
Firstly, sorry for posting more information about Luke Akehurst on this page. This is in response to a direct request made on Twitter.
[Edit: Comrade Hammond has reviewed this evidence and refuses to accept that there is a plot. In the nature of presenting both sides, he believes that Akehurst is talking about the next leadership challenge, and therefore it is not plotting. I think he is being wilfully ignorant.
The original title of this piece was “As requested: Evidence that labour plotters are behind membership revocation“]
Luke Akehurst is the secretary of the group “Labout First”. He frequently posts onto the site LabourList, and sends out emails to the Labour First mailing list.
Proof that Akehurst is a plotter:
This is what he wrote on the 13th of July and published here [Link]
This is Akehurst’s own words. It shows that he sees the Labour leadership challenge as a means to remove Corbyn, and that he is willing to repeat the same tactic in a battle of attrition to remove him from power.
Proof that Akehurst’s plotting is a serious long term plan
This is Akehurst reinforcing the notion that he is ideologically opposed to the Left-wing of the Labour party, and laying out a clear and long-term plan to move the Labour party to the political right wing.
Please note the term Seize as applied to the Labour leadership. The source is here:
This, I hope, is sufficient evidence that Akehurst is a “plotter”. I mean, that is a extremely carefully thought out and planned plot.
Further evidence that this article is being actioned rather than whimsical prose; the book mentioned at the end of point 2 is available here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Alternative-Towards-New-Progressive-Politics/dp/1785900498
Other books soon to be released by the same publishing house:
Proof that Akehurst’s plot to remove Corbyn has some reasons other than lack of confidence
In this damning article, Akehurst see fit to tell the world that members of parliament that fear losing their jobs as a result of a democratic process will be inclined to overthrow the leader of the party so they can install a different leader that will circumvent that democratic process [Source]
This is completely unacceptable, undemocratic and corrupt.
So far, I hope that I have given direct evidence, using his own words, that Akehurst is a plotter, and not simply someone who thinks that Corbyn didn’t campaign hard enough in Johnson’s Remain campaign
Part 2: Proof of Akehurst’s gerrymandering and complicity in the purge
I promised you a chain of evidence, Councillor, that proved that Labour plotters could be blamed for the removal of Labour voters from the electorate
In an email sent to myself on the 21st of July, Akehurst specified a method of locking CLP members out of candidate nomination meetings. This was a very unpopular move in the CLPs it was adopted in. [Tweet showing angry constituent]
And at last, the gerrymandering
And the final part of the evidence chain is the message sent to hundreds of thousands of right-wing members giving details of new broader, open ended methods for which people could be reported to validation and thereby having their vote removed. As you can see, under these guidelines someone can be removed from the party for saying that they “F***ing love the Foo Fighters”, as was done.
So Comrade, I hope that I have laid out evidence that at least one (particularly prolific) plotter was responsible for the purge. If you feel that any part of this evidence chain is weak, please let me know and I will endeavour to strengthen it.
