Iain McNicol’s resignation has just been announced – but is not brand new. The S*n is claiming McNicol had a ‘visit’ from Corbyn this afternoon to tell him he was done. However, that’s more fake news.
The SKWAWKBOX can reveal that the meeting took place on Tuesday – and McNicol was allowed to resign to save face.
After a range of ‘Southside’ interventions, including the premature deactivation of the entry passes to Labour’s Southside HQ of Corbyn and his team on General Election night, many members are celebrating somewhat giddily this evening at the prospect that McNicol’s departure will be the precursor for more widespread changes throughout the party’s bureaucracy, as the Labour Party continues the re-democratisation of a party that was for far too long little more than a vehicle for a controlling elite.
