‘We must give tactical military assistance to Isis’ says Trotskyist who was readmitted to the Labour party

A hard-left activist who was readmitted by Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour party in November has made a remarkable call to support Isis against air strikes.

Gerry Downing defended a blog post by his Trotskyist revolutionary group Socialist Fight in which it argued for ‘critical support and tactical military assistance’ to be given to Islamic terrorists fighting ‘US-led world imperialism’.

Labour said it had expelled him from the party last night after David Cameron used Prime Minister’s Questions to ask Mr Corbyn why he had been re-instated Mr Downing after an appeal.

But speaking on the Daily Politics Show today, Mr Downing said no one from the party had informed him he had been kicked-out and used the TV appearance to repeat his highly controversial views.

    It sounds like the insanity that comes out of another lunatic trotskyite group Socialist Alternative. They should all be in detention centers for their sedition!

    Britain has long been famous for its eccentrics.

      I’ve always considered Screaming Lord Sutch the most entertaining PM they never had. 😉

    You have to be either a traitor or pedophile to get elected to British parliament. The ones with higher standards choose traitor.
