Moderate Labour MPs’ exodus threat over Corbyn leadership: Student far left-wing hope for full Communist State under Jeremy Corbyn
- Younger MPs who have not carved out business careers are said to be particularly tempted to cut and run
- Many have been threatened with deselection for not adhering to Mr Corbyn’s hard-Left doctrine
- One MP said: ‘If the right offer came in tomorrow, l would be off like a shot.’
- Far left-wing students anti-Semitic and hope for Communist State under Corbyn.
Some of Britain’s leading universities are becoming no-go zones for Jewish students because anti-Semitism is so rife, the first ever higher education adjudicator has warned.
Baroness Ruth Deech, a cross-bench peer who formerly held the highest office dealing with student complaints, said that institutions may be failing to combat hatred against Jews as they are “afraid of offending” their potential benefactors from Gulf states.
Her comments come after a series of high profile incidents at top universities where Jewish students claim they were verbally abused or physically attacked. The academic community is at the forefront of calls to boycott Israel.
Amongst Jewish students, there is a growing feeling that there are certain universities that they should avoid because of extreme far left-wing nazis and safe space PC progressive activist far left-wing anti-Semitic nazi fascists.
There has also been an investigation of an alleged anti-Semitic talk where the Palestine Society hosted a speaker last month who described the creation of Israel as against what they stand for.
Earlier this year the co-chair of the Oxford Labour Club resigned in protest at its members’ “problem with Jews” and sympathy with terrorist groups such as Hamas, sparking an intervention from the Universities Minister Jo Johnson who urged the proctors to investigate.
There has also been major issues in other universities where students are now beginning to rebel against left-wing unions because of ‘safe space’ far left-wing politically correct crank policies and rules.
It is commonly accepted that the majority of far left-wing students within UK universities are Jeremy Corbyn supporters and their political aim is for a full Communist State.
Labour MPs may quit
Moderate MPs are privately threatening to follow Jamie Reed, the MP for Copeland in Cumbria, who this week announced his resignation – triggering a by-election.
Younger MPs who have not carved out business careers are said to be particularly tempted to cut and run while Mr Corbyn remains leader.
Many have been threatened with deselection for not adhering to Mr Corbyn’s hard-Left doctrine while others fear they may face at least two more General Elections before Labour has a chance of winning again.
One Labour MP said: ‘Some have been openly discussing options given how long Corbyn could keep us away from government and how disastrous his leadership remains for our electoral prospects.’
Another MP told the Politics Home website: ‘If the right offer came in tomorrow, lots of us would be off like a shot. It’s not just that our electoral prospects are so catastrophically awful. Corbyn has made the atmosphere in the party thoroughly unpleasant and sectarian.
‘Good people, who want to get things done and make a difference rather than be in some embarrassing protest party, are thinking ‘sod this for a game of soldiers’.’
Mr Reed, who has a majority of 2,564, will step down at the end of January to work as the head of development and community relations at Sellafield, the nuclear processing plant in his Cumbria constituency.
However his decision to abandon a seat that the Tories could seize was criticised by an ally of Mr Corbyn. John Rees, national officer of the Stop The War Coalition, said Mr Reed’s decision was ‘self-serving’.
He told Left-wing activists at a Christmas party organised by some of Mr Corbyn’s supporters: ‘I see that Jamie Reed has resigned as Labour MP.
‘Can’t say I mind that. But he’s resigned to go and work for Sellafield nuclear facility, telling you all why nuclear power is such a good idea.
Now what I find objectionable is not that he should resign, but that he thinks that to go from public service to self-serving, representing the nuclear industry is in any way compatible with being on the radical side of politics in this country, because it’s not.’
Mr Reed had told The Guardian his decision to stand down had ‘absolutely nothing to do with Jeremy Corbyn’.
‘On a personal level I’ve got a very cordial relationship. One of the reasons I am moving on is because there’s a better way of doing that [serving his community] right now than to remain as a Member of Parliament.’
The father of four also said he found his six-hour weekly commute a struggle, adding: ‘I know there will be literally hundreds of thousands of people in the same situation I am, working on shifts or oil rigs or tanker drivers or you name it, mothers and fathers, but I’ve always found that difficult.’
In a letter to Mr Corbyn, Mr Reed said quitting politics was ‘the hardest decision of my life’.
But in August, Mr Reed had attacked Mr Corbyn’s refusal to say whether he would back military action in support of another Nato member.
Mr Reed said it was a ‘deliberate attempt to both humiliate and divide the Labour Party’.
Wes Streeting, a moderate Labour MP, vowed that Labour would be ‘election ready’ to fight to hold on to Mr Reed’s seat.
Bookmakers have installed the Conservatives as slight favourites to take the constituency.
