Earlier today, the SKWAWKBOX reported on video footage and eyewitness testimony that appears to contradict the claim by right-wing NEC candidate Jasmin Beckett and others that they were ‘ejected’ from Saturday’s LabourLive event in London for staging a ‘stop Brexit’ protest.
When asked to comment on the evidence suggesting that the protesters had left freely and had been able to take a group photograph with Corbyn and the crowd in the background after allegedly being made to leave, Ms Beckett insisted that the ejection claim was true and that “there were journalists there who were taking pictures“.
When asked which journalists, the only one Ms Beckett named was Politics Home editor Kevin Schofield:
I think Kevin Schofield might have been one of them.
The SKWAWKBOX has been able to establish definitively that Mr Schofield was not at Labour Live at any time. So far, this blog has been unable to find any images released by journalists or others of the protesters’ exit from the grounds.
Ms Beckett has been contacted for comment.
