Ken Loach Biography
Who is Ken Loach ?
Ken Loach has been expelled from the Labor Party for his ties to pro-Jeremy Corbyn groups.
The 85-year-old film director said on Twitter today that he was expelled after refusing to disown former members who were purged from the party last month.
It comes after the Labor Party outlawed four far-left groups in late July, one of which, Labor Against the Witchhunt, Loach was a member of.
In a series of tweets, Loach insisted there was a “witch hunt” and “purge” underway within the party, adding that he was “proud” to be with the other outcasts.
He wrote: ‘Labor headquarters finally decided that I am unfit to be a member of their party, as I will not repudiate those who have already been expelled.
Well, I am proud to support the good friends and comrades who were victims of the purge.wikipedia

It was reported that up to 1,000 members could see their membership revoked as a result of the purge.
The move was agreed to in a nine-hour meeting that also exposed the full scale of the party’s dire financial state, and it was revealed that a voluntary dismissal process had been initiated for staff.
As the meeting unfolded, a protest outside the Labor Party headquarters organized by groups opposing the expulsion included a speech by Piers Corbyn.
On the expulsions, a Labor spokeswoman said at the time: ‘Labor is a broad, welcoming and democratic party and we are committed to ensuring that it remains that way.
“The NEC has decided that these organizations are not compatible with Labor rules or our goals and values.”
