This, by @svphillimore, is a fine piece & stands on its own - I recommend you read it. However, I'm going to make a few comments about how someone who obviously cannot write or think managed to get so far in the Labour Party. Put very simply, Ayesha Hazarika is as thick as mince because she is a diversity hire. She is of a piece with the unfunny "comedian" Nish Kumar, and the dumb as a rock "commentator" Ash Sarkar. These people are hopeless because they were promoted on the basis of what they look like, not because they were any good. They are a walking argument against quotas or anything that smacks of affirmative action. Relatedly, I have become aware (thanks to moderate Labour defectors to the Tories) that a large number of Labour men support "the trans agenda" not because they genuinely believe it, but because they hate all-women shortlists. The honourable ones who hate quotas and diversity hires defect to the Tories. The dishonourable ones stay in Labour & identify as women in order to get endorsed for winnable seats. Occasionally this makes the news - the bloke who identified as a woman only on certain days of the week to get on a candidate shortlist for the 2017 election, for example. Lefties, listen to me: your ridiculous "all must have prizes" and "equality of outcomes" policies have led to this point, and if you want to advance the rest of your ideals, you are going to have to give them up. Anything that can be gamed, will be gamed. And the ordinary men and women of this country - including the poor people Labour is supposed to represent - will be the losers. Of course, you're welcome to join the Tories if those policies so annoy you they make Labour unfit for purpose. But if you want to stay in Labour's house, you're going to have to clean it out. Starting with quotas for women and diversity hires for ethnic minorities.
