The SKWAWKBOX has featured some of the strange events on Merseyside this week, as the properties of a councillor’s resignation letter – which accused local members of bullying and more – showed its ‘author’ was a senior council employee closely linked to the council leader.
The letter was published just a day after a similar attack by another senior Labour figure – and just before the resignation of the Labour whip by local MP Frank Field. A resignation by means of a letter full of smears extremely similar to that of the councillor.
The council leader appeared on BBC television on Friday evening to back Field and his comments.
Now an explosive email has been sent by Wirral West CLP (constituency Labour MP) – the local party of Corbyn-supporting front-bencher Margaret Greenwood – to all members in the constituency.
The email accuses some of those involved in the above drama of “dirty politics” and a “choreographed political attack” on pro-Corbyn Labour members in Wirral West and on their MP:
Councillor Davies, Frank Field and the others have been contacted for comment.
The behaviour of the Labour right on the Wirral has brought the party into disrepute – but it is an exemplar of attempts across the country by right-wingers to undermine the party’s electability for their own narrow political ends.
For the sake of Labour members and people across the country desperate for Labour government, the party must act decisively.
