Hard-Left’s ‘Stalinist plot’ to seize control of Labour: Detailed blueprint by Corbyn’s supporters show they will try to oust critics, take over policy making and hold Mao-style ‘political education activity’ programme

Jeremy Corbyn’s hard Left supporters have drawn up ‘Stalinist’ plans to seize control of the Labour party and purge moderate MPs
A detailed blueprint for how his allies will try to oust internal critics, take over policy-making, and hold a Mao-style programme of ‘political education activity’ has been seen by the Daily Mail.
Entitled ‘Taking control of the Party’, it is understood to have been written by Jon Lansman, a veteran of the Militant battles in the 1980s who is now a director of the Corbyn supporters organisation Momentum.
It calls for a top-to-bottom takeover of the party’s management by hard Left members on its National Executive Committee (NEC) – where Mr Corbyn’s supporters now outnumber moderates.
The plan, which has the support of some senior union figures, is set to be put up for discussion at the Committee’s next meeting in mid-January where it will provoke deep splits.
One long-serving Labour MP said: ‘This is a clear attempt to stage a coup within the party which is not in the interests of party members on the right or the left.’
