In the past two days there’s been a clear, programmed switch of emphasis in the Labour right’s campaign against Jeremy Corbyn.

They have switched from attacking Corbyn himself to attacking Momentum, the grassroots campaign set up by his supporters after he won last time, and which forms the backbone of his leadership campaign now.

A Times story, based on an offical-looking but anonymous dossier about Momentum’s activities in Liverpool, forms the centrepiece. Two pre-scheduled TV “investigations” are to follow.

The Liverpool dossier has been compiled by someone — believed to be local Labour officials — using undercover surveillance methods to infiltrate Google and Facebook groups Momentum uses.

WASPI is a campaign group that fights the injustice done to women born in the 1950’s, regarding changes to their state pension age. Draconian decisions by all Governments has resulted in many women finding themselves without any income and in dire circumstances due to pension rule changes, arbitrarily introduced with little thought to the impact on those 2.5m women affected.

The campaign seeks to achieve fair transitional state pension arrangements.
The campaign has become increasingly effective at getting noticed, however, mass support is now urgently required.

There is a local day of action, in Derby City Centre (at The Ram) on Friday 16th September, 2016, at 11.00-14.00, with a choir singing the WASPI Anthem around 13.00hrs.

The very moving anthem can be heard at:
