After the March Certification Officer hearing into his complaint that the Unite General Secretary election that he lost last year should never have been held, right-winger Gerard Coyne tweeted to his followers
The tweet – and the press release that accompanied it – bore almost no relation to the hearing that took place – to the point that Unite consulted lawyers about the claims.
However, the tweet also contained a promise: “I will share any news with you as soon as I receive it.”
Last Friday the Certification Officer, retired judge Jeffrey Burke, announced his decision that not only was Coyne’s claim unfounded, it was unreasonable.
Four days later, Mr Coyne still does not seem to have ‘shared any news’ with his Twitter followers – although he did send an email to his mailing list that indicated his likely intent to pursue the rest of his case, even though he is said to have nothing new to offer that hasn’t already been defeated – and turned back on him – at earlier hearings.
