Millwall FC's ground in south London, the Den, along with many local residents, no longer faces eviction.

Growing public opposition to Blairite Lewisham council's relationship with property developers Renewal has stymied the attack. Labour mayor Sir Steve Bullock has cancelled the 'compulsory purchase order' Renewal needed.

Bullock is a director of the Surrey Canal Sports Foundation, a charity funded by Renewal to push forward the 'redevelopment'.

Renewal itself is registered in a tax haven, was founded by a former Labour mayor of Lewisham, and is run by a former Lewisham council officer.

The pro-capitalist, undemocratic politics of Labour's right-wing machine are a perfect breeding ground for dodgy practices like these.

The Millwall campaign shows again the need for the Corbyn movement to break with the Blairites.
