Almost two weeks ago, the SKWAWKBOX exposed how the Gerard Coyne campaign for the leadership of the Unite union committed an apparent DPA (Data Protection Act) breach, in conjunction with someone at the Labour Party, by sending a series of emails to Labour members who are not and never have been members of Unite to promote Coyne’s candidacy.
In spite of the exposure of the breach by this blog and its widespread dissemination on social media, Coyne’s campaign team are still sending unsolicited emails to illegally-obtained email addresses – of people who can’t vote for him anyway.
This suggests not just a huge absence of integrity but also a gross incompetence and serious desperation by a team trying desperately to save a campaign that many are saying will be ‘lucky to come third’ out of three candidates.
This is the latest email to be sent out and it has been reported to this blog by multiple independent sources:
Compounding their incompetence and apparent DPA breach, Coyne’s team are adding yet more hypocrisy to the mix by continuing to attack Unite’s ‘perfectly standard’ arrangement to invest in an apartment for Len McCluskey to use for his duties and the union’s donations to Jeremy Corbyn’s campaign – even though Coyne himself was involved in similar donations to Tom Watson’s deputy leadership campaign and his backer Watson benefited from similar accommodation arrangements.
Incompetent, untrustworthy, hypocritical and in thrall to right-wing interests. Just a few of the reasons Gerard Coyne shouldn’t be allowed near any kind of official union position – let alone the General Secretaryship of Unite.
In another exclusive, the SKWAWKBOX has obtained a ‘smoking gun‘ that reveals the source of the illegally-obtained data of Labour members. The article will follow shortly.
