Julian Vaughan – Statement

“I am deeply saddened at the events following the publication of the report by the Equality and Human Rights Commission. I voted for Corbyn in both leadership elections and was inspired by his vision for radical change and a truly fairer society. Corbyn has campaigned against inequality and racism throughout his political career. I do not believe he is anti-Semitic. However, the EHRC report highlighted significant failings and unlawful activity while he was leader of the Labour Party and ultimately it is the leader who bears responsibility for those failings.

I would urge those from all sides of the Labour Party to fully reflect on the report. This is not a time for denial, or to look for fault elsewhere. Across the breadth of the Labour movement, there is much more that unites us than divides us. I would urge members to stay within the party, find common ground and work together to remove the current government, who present such a grave threat to the values of equality, fairness and democracy we all hold so dear.”

One thought on “Julian Vaughan – Statement

  1. I think Corbyn’s comments and their timing is unforgivable
    – I can’t believe he is that naive as to not have known the position that would have placed Kier Starmer in. He needs to look to himself for the disruption this has caused – I’m angry!
