4:15 am
faced homophobic abuse at that meeting. angela was not the meeting, but the inference was that she was she was activists as members of parliament and their staff a facing day and day out harassment. and in some cases, intimidation i rambled people to that meeting, which was just a complete shock. we didn't know anything about it. no one had this in a listen to people. we all, we don't use language like that. there was no homophobia or intimidation at the meeting. very small rems, i would be very easy to have what was being said by other people. the national media sees on the story who's articles and television
4:16 am
interviews, saying that the bean, people shouting the angela was at night that an to was homophobic gestures, made repeated, homophobic comments. then over the days and weeks to follow, the allegations grew into festival. it was widespread homophobia. what happened in want to see is to become the playbook of corbin's opponents in the party. the labor hours reveal the series of complaints filed by eagle support as to the party limp risk gestures were made to t i l g b t officer. a nasty, homophobic comments were made about a m p ah, i did not say any interest gestures and there were no homophobic comments made about them pay i had no of abuse at an early what i
4:17 am
did. and there was no other abuse. i've never seen such caution all my life the room was full of trade unionists who are well aware that their jobs were on the line. if any sledge about homophobia, aero massage, nay, were found to be trip. i just was stunned. it didn't happen. and yes, i did repeatedly say that these thing didn't happen because they didn't simple as that. i'll fade after ever. my daughter got married the day after the anita and she married a woman. i wasn't alone on the top table with a relative who i identifies as i sexual. so it just seems strange that anybody would think that we would allow that to go on. and here you
4:18 am
have people who seem palpably decent men and women in order to damage the local labor party. a real horrible hatchet job is being done on the local members. eagle then reveals her intention not to support corbin, but to challenge him. today i am announcing my decision to stand for the leadership of the labor parking hm. the needed to be a distraction from the fact that wallace, the constituency, were not supporting their m p. 's leadership bit, ah, angela, regal. and i stopped started to become paranoid. that she was gonna be d selected
4:19 am
as in the local members would say, well, we don't want you to, to be, are unpaid next time this in a general election. and, and so that was something which they, they were very automated about. i'm looking forward to having a debate with jeremy colbin about the things that really matter to our country. a counselor pull stewart to compose a dossier of complaints from 17 people claiming they heard homophobic comments. i must have had very loudly are there 17 people had other people in the room, but also heard that it didn't hurt because it also said stu, it's sends the dossier to party had caught is i have also attached a slip of paper that was handed to me previously by momentum member momentum was an organization, sets out in 2015 to give some kind of organizational form to the the movement that
4:20 am
supported jeremy corbin steward claims the note is evidence of a plot i momentum hope to take control of labor party meetings. it's not the kind of night i've ever seen any one sec lighting seriously. this is a night caricaturing what the militant tendency was accused during enlightened ages . and this is lay become rice militants, and its supporters seem to have had as high profile as ever. the militant tendency was a radical left faction that was accused of secretly plotting to take over the labor party. at that time, it controlled liverpool, the local government for the rights of the labor party. the battle against militant in a large night is, is, is kind of biblical, is the foundation of their politics. a think tank from the right of the party publishes a review of
4:21 am
a book about the militant tendency. it claims to describe militant strategy for taking over party meetings in the 1980s. the note from countless to it is copied directly from the book review. ah, i don't know, somebody passed a note like that, i totally bonkers if they have find it hard to believe that a document like that would be impressed around the i wouldn't have got to hear about personally somebody was said to listen as tom watson, corbin's, deputy but privately a critic obtain stewart's note. watson then writes to colbin. there is no denying that tightly organized factions organizing within momentum and the party. at the end of watson's letter, he says,
4:22 am
and i attach a document that i am reliably informed, is being shared between momentum members with links to far left parties which summarizes the methods used by militant in the 1980s. i hope this note helps to dispel any remaining notion that entry ism is a conspiracy theory. whole stewart's note ends up in the national media. as tom watson says, are you allowing truck scarce than the hard left in the drive label? this is how you make that are created in the political media space. you have something which is reportable, and it can always be referred back to. and it becomes one of these funds, to course isn't a fact. and that's how a large number of these, these stories can come about
4:23 am
brighton is a progressive city in the u. k. it's kind of known for being progressive is known for being a liberal, left leaning. and obviously the movement behind jeremy cogan was very strong brought actually in other places on the south coast, the local branch becomes the largest in the country with over 6000 members. the party organizes its 1st general meeting since corbin became leader the atmosphere the labor punch in the jeremy colbin was one of optimism was one of cheer, was one of fully doroty. we organized a raleigh before the annual meeting of the city party. any one was invited and we had about 7800 people that a week before the meeting, the leader of the labor group in the brighten city council, sends an email to his supporters. i'm emailing to ask you
4:24 am
a favor. next saturday, al city labor party faces a takeover by a group of individuals for momentum and other fringe left. when groups this party, his face down militant before i'm asking you to help do that again. i was a member of my mention at that time and we decided we would run no less freight which we gate. we went into that meeting. i pen on a trans spouton to make speeches out when we really said we were very pleased. we all had 65 percent of the vote. 2 in 3 people attending a, a reco turn out. a record majority had one. fantastic. but actually
4:25 am
in retrospect, we went into that meeting like lambs to the slaughter. we had no idea a 3rd level of caption and conspiracy and de la miss on a business that would follow as a consequence for democratic election within brighton montreal, cole. about 1030. i think that night i was just outside of the theater. it was a call from someone in jeremy corbin's office. some one i knew and she said, i thought she was ringing to congratulate me as i got text and phone calls, but now she rang me said yes, we've boys got to do something about spitting. we got to be able to rebut the spitting, i said why, what spitting the following day, morgan sends
4:26 am
a complaint to labors regional office. venue staff were legit lease spat at others were verbally intimidated. i'll organize it was assaulted and abused. i've no hesitation in saying that this is a hostile takeover of the party. these fake accusations were shooting around the world before truth cuz his boots on. they took me 48 hours to piece together what anybody could have pieced together. and danny's lies had been told they'd been told repeatedly, over 2 or 3 days with repeated opportunities. they lied, they lied, lied and lied again. i took some che statements 23000 words named people who attended. and every single person said, there was nothing wrong. when i got the c c t,
4:27 am
v footage proven there was no spitting the allegations disappeared. ah, despite having no evidence that spitting of aggression took place, the fall show that labors legal unit is intent on over tanning, the victory of the pro colbin faction. catherine buckingham from the disputes unit rights to her boss. what's your feeling on brighton? the head of the legal unit replies exactly what you proposed overturned the annual general meeting deal with individuals. while we worry about applying the rules correctly and legal niceties. buckingham feels confident that the rules don't matter. it's soon about to come to a head. i'm not worried about any of those things. i say, act now and worry about those things later. days later,
4:28 am
the results of the election are overturned and the constituency is suspended. the biggest mistake i've made apart from joining the light punch in the 1st place was winning an election in the labor party and the constant. so we have no democracy if you have an in a cool 68 or 10 people nationally, with the tentacle spreading out the vanish regions. saying who can be a candidate saying, who can be a member, the new controller body policy, one of the major parties in this country. and i found up is on democratic basically a qu by group of people to take over one of the magic little parties in britain in part 2 of the labor files, how abusive messaging is used to discredit party rivals my dad to read those broken comments. and he was upset
4:29 am

4:30 am
just on their suffering, but also on the more capitalistic and inspiring story. people trust on to, to tell them what's happening in their communities in a clear and unbiased way. and as an african, i couldn't be more proud to be part of it all out is the real world tells the story of the british italian man experiencing life in a palestinian refugee camp. and they were coming face to face with the daily lives of its residence. some of whom have lived here for more than 70 years has been a refugee almost all his life. it's not my normal life for sure. for decades after the supper and to telemachus, 7 days in bay, which on al jazeera, ah
