Dear Keith Vaz (right dishonourable Labour MP for Leicester East),
You are a liability to the labour movement and to the good name of Leicester. Please put us out of our misery and stand down from politics.
Jeremy Corbyn’s anti-austerity Labour Party desperately needs MPs who are willing to provide a robust and uncompromising attack on the representatives of the billionaire-class and provide resolute support for the working-class. Politicians like yourself seem to feel accountable only to the few, but not the many.
As reported in the Leicester Mercury (March 3), you published a letter in the Guardian newspaper earlier this week to state that, if left unaddressed, “the diabetes tsunami will overwhelm and bankrupt the NHS.” As a so-called representative of the labour movement, you forgot to state the obvious fact that it is the Tories, not diabetes sufferers, who are bankrupting the NHS. You are truly a liability to the Labour Party.
Yet your unwillingness to critique the Tories is nothing new. To top off the week, the day after the legal courts found a Leicester extremist guilty of trying to kill two Muslims with his car, you willingly spent the day gallivanting around Leicester with an Indian politician who is a member of the right-wing Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
Considering the BJP’s undisguised hostility to the Muslim community, and delighted embrace of the most extreme form of Tory politics, this was surely yet another unforgivable mistake for someone who professes to be a Labour man?
Corbyn’s Labour Party is no place for you and your many Blairite and Tory friends. So once again Mr Vaz, please do us all a favour and resign.
