As the SKWAWKBOX broke exclusively last night, right-wing Labour MP Ian Austin may have had a narrow escape when he launched a verbal tirade against ex-miner colleague Ian Lavery in the House of Commons just before recess, but Lavery has made a formal complaint against the ‘thuggish‘ Dudley North MP.
Austin’s troubles – brought upon himself – continue to mount up. The SKWAWKBOX has learned that Derby North MP Chris Williamson has also lodged his own complaint against Austin over two separate alleged incidents last week, similar to the Lavery abuse.
One incident is understood to have taken place in the division lobby – the same setting as the Lavery incident – while a second happened the next day behind the Speaker’s chair, where Margaret Hodge abused and slandered party leader Jeremy Corbyn.
Williamson is said to have ignored Austin on both occasions.
The SKWAWKBOX has contacted Ian Austin for comment on the incidents. He has not yet responded.
