“Momentum condemns the expulsion of Jill Mountford, an elected member of our Steering Committee, from the Labour Party. We believe this is an unjust decision by the Labour Party Compliance Unit. Jill is a respected activist, well known for her NHS campaigning in Lewisham and nationally. She remains utterly committed to the Labour Party and will be appealing this decision. Jill will continue to campaign for Labour and encourage others to join the party. Ironically, Jill found out about her expulsion on returning from a canvassing session for Sadiq Khan’s mayoral campaign. Momentum will be supporting Jill in her appeal to the Labour Party and also calls on the Compliance Unit to act with far greater transparency and consistency to restore faith in the Party’s membership processes. Jill will remain a member of Momentum’s Steering Committee.”
