Online show to look back on Labour's ‘difficult’ year during lockdown

AN ONLINE show this weekend will reflect on a “difficult” year for the Labour Party.

The Labour Grassroots interactive show will take place via Zoom on Sunday morning, with invited guests including MPs Jeremy Corbyn, John McDonnell and Rebecca Long-Bailey and Unite assistant general secretary Howard Beckett.

Crispin Flintoff said that Labour Grassroots had started as comedy show to “raise morale” during the coronavirus lockdown and has now “become a centre of resistance to Labour Party bureaucrats who seem intent on demoralising socialists.”

The Stand Up for Labour founder said that his Labour Grassroots highlights include a discussion of the explosive internal Labour report the day after it was leaked, a celebration of Diane Abbott’s 33rd year as an MP — which he said had been “snubbed” by party leader Sir Keir Starmer — and Mr Corbyn’s birthday.

The host’s other high points include the release of a single for former veteran Labour MP Dennis Skinner and “countless shows involving suspended Labour members speaking out against general secretary David Evans and party bureaucracy.”

The hour-long show starts at 10.30am on Sunday. Register to watch at labourgrassroots.com/event/one-year-on.
