"We express confidence in Jeremy Corbyn as party leader and call for the party, including our MPs, to rally behind him.
Instead of undermining our leader, elected by an overwhelming majority of members and affiliated supporters, we should be uniting to take on the Tories - to highlight their responsibility for the referendum result; to insist that their austerity program, not migration, is responsible for the problems society is struggling with; and to put forward clear policies on jobs, homes, services and workers' rights which can begin to really tackle the social distress on which nationalism has fed."
Is dismayed and angered by the antics of a section of the Parliamentary Labour Party who have sought to undermine our democratically-elected leader Jeremy Corbyn.
Notes Labour MPs would not have been elected without the efforts of ordinary members, trudging through the streets in the rain to deliver leaflets, putting the Party’s case across on the doorstep, organising in communities, and paying their regular subscriptions.
Believes that this is a critical moment which will determine the future of our communities for years to come, and those voters in Broxtowe and across the country need Labour to be united and fighting to defeat any attacks on workers’ rights, environmental protections, and any increased racism and xenophobia.
And therefore resolves to support Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership of the party and to condemn the actions of those who are seeking to divide the party and overturn the leaders’ democratic mandate”
