That’s according to Jeremy Corbyn
Jeremy Corbyn has said Sir Keir Starmer’s decision to bar him from standing as a Labour candidate at the next election is a “flagrant attack” on democracy.
Former Labour leader Mr Corbyn, who currently sits as an independent MP, hit out at his successor – describing the move as a “divisive distraction from our overriding goal: to defeat the Conservative Party”.
It comes after Sir Keir for the first time unequivocally barred Mr Corbyn from standing as a Labour candidate at the next general election.
The Labour leader also welcomed the Equality and Human Rights Commission’s decision to lift the party out of two years of special measures over its past failings on antisemitism.
Responding to Sir Keir, Mr Corbyn added: “Any attempt to block my candidacy is a denial of due process, and should be opposed by anybody who believes in the value of democracy.”
