Statement from the LB Editorial Board
The Labour Briefing Co-operative is shocked and saddened at the decision of the Momentum national leadership to withdraw support for NEC candidate Peter Willsman.
Briefing continues to call for support for all 9 pro-Corbyn candidates: Yasmine Dar, Huda Elmi, Rachel Garnham, Ann Henderson, Jon Lansman, Nav Mishra, Claudia Webbe, Darren Williams, Peter Willsman.
In the interest of unity of all those forces in the Labour Party that support the Corbyn leadership we call on the Momentum leadership to urgently reconsider its decision. We call on Momentum supporters around the country to contact the national Momentum office to encourage them to reconsider their decision.
