JEREMY CORBYN demanded today that Sir Keir Starmer take more radical action to fix “our broken political and economic system” on the eve of the party’s annual conference in Brighton.
In a stinging rebuke to his successor, Labour’s former leader said that Sir Keir wants to “shut down debate and sideline members and trade unions” rather than challenge capitalist power.
Mr Corbyn’s intervention comes after Sir Keir announced proposals to hand more power to MPs in future leadership elections — at the expense of ordinary members.
Socialists have also warned of a purge of leftwingers from the party, spearheaded by general secretary David Evans, a key ally of Sir Keir.
Speaking ahead of the five-day conference which starts tomorrow, Mr Corbyn said: “We meet at a time of great change and crisis, perhaps larger than any other time in my 50-plus years of party membership.
“Our movement has the answers to the big questions of the age — but our leaders are failing to listen.
“The party leadership wants to shut down debate, with the end result that Labour props up, rather than challenges, our broken political and economic system.”
