Last week, the SKWAWKBOX revealed that a senior Black Country Labour MP was facing allegations of racist behaviour toward a young constituent from a minority ethnic background.
Tonight, the SKWAWKBOX can exclusively reveal that the MP in question is John Spellar, a key figure in the Labour right nationally as well as in the West Midlands. A party complaints officer has been allocated to investigate.
Mr Spellar is aware of the case. The allegations have not been proven and he is entitled to the presumption of innocence until such time as the case is judged one way or the other.
He recently visited Saudi Arabia along with now-suspended MP John Woodcock. He is a director of the company formed as a vehicle for the right-wing pressure group, Labour First.
The SKWAWKBOX contacted John Spellar last night for comment. He had not responded at the time of writing.
