Expel Michael Foster from the Labour Party
This campaign has ended.
After his article in the Daily Mail where Michael Foster refers to Jeremy Corbyn supporters and Momentum members as "Nazi Stormtroopers", Michael Foster has insulted and defamed thousands of fellow Labour Party members.
Why is this important?
The Labour Party NEC has already stated that it will expel any member who uses insults or threats to other members during the course of the Leadership election. This article in the Daily Mail is incredibly insulting and distressing by comparing those who support Jeremy Corbyn as Nazi Stormtroopers.

"We welcome, with faint praise, a statement from the Labour Party NEC that they will be investigating Michael Foster's irresponsible and highly offensive comments printed in an interview with the Mail on Sunday, last weekend.
We say this, because an immediate suspension, pending further investigation would be the correct and consistent course of action taken in these circumstances.
We question whether Mr Foster's financial relationship with the Labour Party have spared his course of action.
The recent Chakrabarti report was very clear: 'no Nazi analogies' are to be used by Labour Party members.
We implore the NEC to take further, decisive action and immediately suspend Michael Foster, for the sake of justice and integrity."
