Labour suspends party members over 'anti-Semitic' Facebook group

Labour suspends party members over 'anti-Semitic' Facebook group

A group including former leader Kezia Dugdale had hoped to use a Brexit debate on Sunday to call for the United Kingdom to remain in the trading bloc.

Several constituency Labour parties have also submitted motions to the conference backing permanent membership of the single market.

"It would therefore be wrong to sign up to a single market deal without agreement that our final relationship with the European Union would be fully compatible with our radical plans to change Britain's economy", he added.

"The rules of the Single Market do not prevent public ownership", she said.

Corbyn will say Labour, which gained six Scottish seats in the snap general election past year, is "on the cusp" of winning in about 20 more.

When asked if the leadership was clamping down on democratic debate, Mr Corbyn insisted: "Absolutely not".

And the party's Scottish leader, Richard Leonard, said delegates would be given a choice on whether to accept the Scottish Executive Committee's ruling - although it would be extremely unusual for it to be overturned.

"One of Mr Corbyn's slogans is "standing up, not standing by", but in this case he has not stood up but instead he actively joined in", Glasman said.

"And given Ian Murray's such a keen supporter of the single market, it seems Labour's leader and most senior Scottish MP are at bitter odds on this vital matter".

Buckle up folks, things are about to get procedural.

Speaking after his speech, the SNP said the party's support for Brexit which would see Scotland outside the single market "shameful".

The party's executive has put down a policy screed of their own (in such a last-minute fashion that it didn't make it into the conference agendas handed out to delegates) which takes precedence over the others.

He insisted: "We are determined to negotiate a deal that gives us full tariff-free access to the single market".

Ms Stihler said Brexit was the biggest challenge facing the country today, and there was "simply no left-wing argument for leaving the European single market" as it protected workers' rights.

At the 2017 General Election, the Labour Party's unexpectedly strong showing saw it seize highly affluent areas in the south of England and London that had never before been held by Labour, such as the seats of Kensington and Canterbury.

Jeremy Corbyn will take to the stage in Dundee on Friday to claim Labour are in line for an extraordinary resurgence in Scotland.

But until he understands that the political culture of which he is a leader fosters the very anti-Semitism he claims to condemn, this problem will only get worse.

The conference, which runs from Friday to Sunday, is set to be dominated by infighting over the party's Brexit stance.

"This step forward is also important for Labour in Scotland". We must begin the process of tackling the institutionalised anti-Semitism in the Labour Party.

And he will accuse the Conservatives of forming a "divided government that has no clear idea of what it's doing, what it wants, or where it's going".

"Rather than taking action to help block that looming disaster, they are blindly supporting plans to leave the single market - which the United Kingdom government admits will have a devastating impact on Scotland's economy".

He will add: "As Theresa May has now admitted, under her plans for a reckless Tory Brexit the United Kingdom risks losing access to European markets".
