As reported on his blog, Kevin Higgins has been dealt an “administrative suspension from holding office or representing the Labour party.” Though he is a member of the party, Higgins does not hold office; he speculates that his involvement in the online publication of ’21 Poems, 21 Reasons to Choose Jeremy Corbyn’ may be the “comments made on social media” the party refer to in their letter. Higgins has published two other pro-Corbyn poems, ‘The Ghost of Miniscule John Mann” and ‘On Your Unsuitability for Holding High Office’, published in The Bogman’s Canon and the Morning Star respectively.

They certainly did not tell me it would be that way.
When you die 'So no-one told you life was gonna be this way' plays and the clapping perpetually loops over a montage of your worst regrets.
