Last week the SKWAWKBOX covered the attempt by disability activist Rick Burgess to get Labour General Secretary to participate in court-ordered mediation to resolve the issue of Burgess’ expulsion from the Labour Party for an innocuous tweet – and the £25 he had paid for a vote he was denied in last year’s leadership election.
Burgess had taken McNicol to small claims court, where a judge mandated mediation, but the judgment had, up to that point, been ignored.
The SKWAWKBOX is pleased to report that Labour’s senior employee has now attended mediation with Rick Burgess, in a move that Burgess attributes to the increased awareness and pressure resulting from the SKWAWKBOX’s coverage – and that the dispute has been resolved.
The terms of the settlement are secret and Burgess could only comment,
Mediation happened, case is now resolved. Now let’s get a Labour Government ASAP
but the SKWAWKBOX is delighted for Rick that a satisfactory resolution has been achieved after a long battle.
