Corbyn supporters change rules to allow violent conduct

Jeremy Corbyn's stormtroopers, Momentum, have dropped a non-violence clause from their code of ethics (£), leaving the door open for violent revolution.

During the Labour leadership election last year Jeremy Corbyn's supporters orgainsed themselves into the trade union-sponsored Momentum, a bizarre personality cult which has grown up around Red Jez. Until now they've kept the nasty side of their movement fairly low key - threats and lobbing bricks through windows - but now they've dropped their official ban on using violence in the name of "self defence".

The whole Momentum movement has echoes of the early days of the Nazi Party and this tacit endorsement of violence during campaigning will no doubt worry law enforcement agencies as much as the non-Corbynites.
