Following a several-months campaign against his expulsion from the Labour Party, well-known London Labour, Young Labour and socialist activist Liam McNulty has been reinstated.
Liam’s campaign combined persistent challenges to the Compliance Unit through official channels with mobilising support from his local Labour Party in Haringey (despite sharp right wing opposition), his Momentum group, and trade unions, including his own union, Unite. He has also played a prominent role in the Stop the Labour Purge initiative since it was set up in November.
Liam’s victory is not the only one so far. There are some appeals pending, but pretty much every expelled socialist who has been able, through persistence, to get an appeal process has been reinstated. That includes Workers’ Liberty supporters Gemma Short and Daniel Randall.
