Director Ken Loach said today that he has been expelled from the Labour Party.
The veteran leftwing filmmaker claimed in a Twitter stream the move came because he would “not disown those already expelled.”
Keir Starmer, the leader of the UK Labour Party, was reportedly ready to support the removal of factions that were supportive of his predecessor, Jeremy Corbyn.
The 85-year-old Loach, who won the 2016 Cannes Film Festival Palme d’Or for I, Daniel Blake and the 2017BAFTA Award for Outstanding British Film, said he was standing with his colleagues.
Loach has previously left the Labour party and has worked with other political parties opposed to Labour.
He rejoined the party following Corbyn’s election to the leadership.
