APACKED Conway Hall saw the British launch of The Big Lie, a film depicting the Establishment campaign to destroy Jeremy Corbyn, on Thursday night.
The Platform Films production directed by Chris Reeves covers the rise of the Corbyn movement, its 2017 high point when it won Labour’s largest vote share increase since 1945, and the forces which eventually brought it crashing down.
In a post-screening discussion with Mr Reeves and Platform Films’ Norman Thomas, Morning Star editor Ben Chacko said the film was an important exposé of the direction of the current Labour Party, and the character assassination of Corbyn was ongoing — being used to prevent him from standing for Labour in the constituency he has represented since 1983.
LABOUR leader Sir Keir Starmer is a “tool of the Establishment” who deliberately undermined Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership of the party, legendary film director Ken Loach has charged.
In excerpts from his interview in the upcoming documentary film Oh Jeremy Corbyn — The Big Lie, the award-winning film-maker said the ex-shadow Brexit secretary acted like an “undercover spy cop” at his predecessor’s top table.
In the film, due to receive its premiere in central London next month, Mr Loach says: “Every now and then, to show that we’re a democracy, there’s a change of government.
“The party changes, but it’s so important from the Establishment’s point of view that the alternative party won’t change anything — and that’s what Starmer is proving now.”
