    Hi Jo
    So glad all sorted and you were reinstated. Talk about storm in a teacup. I thought it quite a clever play on words, but clearly some others did not. Ah well.
    Yours for Socialism and the EU, Ros

    It’s so great to have you in the LP, Jo. Thanks for the video message.
    It gives heart.

  • Jan P says:

    Well done Jo Bird. What a horrible experience but you have stood firm and not let the deliberate and false accusations deter you. We stand with you.

  • Rafi says:

    Jo Bird made a very unfortunate comment by manipulating the famous words of Pastor Niemoller for her expedient ends.
    I cannot take her views seriously!

    • Mike Cushman says:

      Niemoller’s words are a resource for each of us to use to alert people of the dangers of ignoring threats to oppressed minorities. They are not preserved in amber to be observed as an artefact of a past time but to help us with the present.

      Jo Bird’s usage was not manipulation but carrying on Niemoller’s work.

  • Sean Thompson says:

    Sorry Mike I disagree with you.
    Jo’s comment was not in my opinion educational nor illuminating
    ( am I allowed to disagree ? )
