As the SKWAWKBOX has covered recently, the suspension of Wallasey CLP (constituency Labour party) is, according to Labour sources, set to be lifted – although members have not yet been informed – but only under strict controls that will protect local councillors who expected to be deselected by angry members.
And protect its MP, Angela Eagle, should a General Election be called over the next few months.
The one person in the CLP still facing a disciplinary hearing is its elected vice-Chair – or former vice Chair, as Labour HQ has annulled the elections and will force the CLP to hold new elections of its officers – Paul Davies.
Mr Davies has been suspended and is expected to be expelled for supposed ‘intimidating behaviour’ centred around his robust defence of his members – quite rightly, as all charges were later dropped and none of the accusers ever went to the police, as they were obliged to do – if the events actually occurred.
The remaining allegation against Davies concerns a letter that he sent to two of his accusers – both of whom had freely appeared on television to spread their allegations – offering to take a lie-detector test with them.
In spite of their obvious lack of shyness, the NEC DP (National Executive Disputes Panel) says that this letter is ‘intimidating’. The SKWAWKBOX is able to bring you the full text of that letter, so you can judge for yourself whether it merits that description:

Alleged Homophobic Behaviour
The allegations made by you against Wallasey Labour Party are horrendous and are supposed to have occurred at our Annual Meeting on 24th June . Forty four upstanding Wallasey citizens were at that meeting including two members of Angela’s staff and four Councillors one of whom was yourself. It is alleged that there was intimidation and homophobic behaviour because Angela Eagle was challenging Jeremy Corbyn for the Leadership.
The alleged actions, by persons unknown to me, are a serious Criminal Act and should be reported to the Police and I would ask you to do so.
If I had witnessed this behaviour, and felt unable to stop it at the time, I would have already been to the Police and indeed did visit them in Manor Road when I first heard of the allegations and they assured me that if witnesses come forward they would treat this as a serious matter.
I also challenge you to take part in a Lie Detector test, along with myself, and would be happy to do this under the supervision of the Liverpool Echo. Truth and Justice are needed.
Does this look like intimidation to you – or like an attempt to get justice out of a dire situation?
Meanwhile, the people who have been proven to have made false allegations against Paul Davies face no action whatever by the Labour Party.
Could this be anything other than a stitch-up?
