Labour preventing entryism by socialists

The news today that Labour apparatchiks have barred long-standing socialist writers Mark Steel and Ken Loach from voting in the coming leadership election suggests that they have taken to heart Bertolt Brecht's 1953 sardonic advice to the DDR administration:

 “Would it not be easier/ In that case for the government/ To dissolve the people/ And elect another?” 


Clearly it is important to avoid the purity of New Labour being tainted by socialism.

Chris Dillow has an interesting take on the Labour leadership which would be applauded by communitarian Liberals: http://stumblingandmumbling.typepad.com/stumbling_and_mumbling/2015/08/labours-dysfunctional-ideology.html
