Diane Abbott's decision to send her son to a private school is disgraceful. She has been widely condemned throughout Hackney for turning her back on the Borough's schools, teachers and children.
Below is a resolution - which I proposed - passed by Bakerloo Line RMT, condemning her and asking the national union to remove her from its Parliamentary group.
"This branch condemns Diane Abbott MP for sending her son to a fee-paying private school. Such schools are a backbone of class inequality and privilege. We reiterate our support for free, well-funded, quality, comprehensive state education for all children.
"As a Labour MP and avowed socialist, her job is to represent working-class people, to back the hard-working and hard-pressed staff in our schools, and to fight for the interests of all children in Hackney, not just those whose parents can afford private education.
"In taking this action, Diane Abbott has lost the trust and support of her constituents, and should lose the trust and support of this union too.
"We ask the Council of Executives to remove Diane Abbott MP from our Parliamentary group, as her continued membership of it is an embarrassment, and undermines our campaign for publicly-owned public services.
"This union resolves to only support political candidates and holders of public office who are genuine socialists and who stand up for working-class people."
