Karen asks "Anyone remember Angela Eagle's letter when going for deputy leader."
Dear Labour Party Member,
I said today that the political elite need to lay off Jeremy Corbyn.
I would happily serve under anyone the members choose to be our leader. Why? Because I respect the wisdom of our members, supporters and affiliates and our Party’s process of electing a new leadership team. Every candidate has the right to be heard and put forward a vision for Labour’s future and, whether you agree with Jeremy Corbyn or not, he is in the race and is entitled to participate.
So the talk of coups, remarks about not serving in Shadow Cabinets and former Prime Minister’s telling people to get ‘heart
transplants’ need to stop now.
When I launched my Deputy Leadership campaign I said that I want to unite the Labour Party and focus our efforts on defeating the real enemy - the Tories.
I am a proud trade unionist but I’ve never been in any faction and I’ve always been loyal. I’ve never been afraid to speak out
when we got it wrong either, like I did over Foundation Hospitals or University Tuition Fees and that is why I am speaking out now because the public attacks are only helping our political enemies.
Let’s debate but let us do it with respect. If I am elected Deputy Leader, there will be a place for all views and opinions in the
Labour Party. I’ll make sure of that by uniting us and preparing us for the battles ahead.
I hope you will join my campaign and together we can build a movement that we can all be proud of.
Angela Eagle MP
Labour Deputy Leader Candidate
Eagle claimed to be the unity candidate posting the following online on a Labour website in August 2015:
As ballots will be dropping on door mats tomorrow, it is time to reflect on this leadership election. I have been meeting with members and supporters all across the United Kingdom to hear what they have to say about our Party’s future. We all know that May 7th was a terrible day in our party’s memory but there has been a resounding message of hope from all corners of this country.
