The word among Labour activists is that there has been a sudden, massive upturn in the number of bots and fake accounts swamping pro-Corbyn threads on social media – often along the lines of ‘I used to support Corbyn but…‘ – ever since Max Mosley’s latest couple of hundred grand donation last month to deputy Labour leader and ‘Project Anaconda’ architect Tom Watson.
That brings Mosley’s donations to Watson to a tidy £500,000 so far. And fake accounts, with the people/technology to fuel them, cost money.
Of course, correlation is not causation. The two things definitely correlate, but they might be completely unconnected. But this blog would like to invite Tom Watson to publish a complete account of his and his team’s spending since receiving those donations, so we can all see how he has spent/is spending Mosley’s money.
Nothing to hide, nothing to fear, Tom – so if you’re spending the money on things that the majority of the members of your party would approve of, I can’t think of any good reason not to disclose the information.
So, what about it? If you decline, we can only assume there’s a reason for that and you feel there’s something that needs hiding.
What about it, Tom? Will you be transparent and accountable to Labour members?
