On Saturday, the SKWAWKBOX revealed the damning letter sent by members of Wirral West Labour party, accusing a Labour councillor, the council leader, Birkenhead MP Frank Field and others of a ‘choreographed political attack’ on pro-Corbyn members – and their Corbyn-supporting, front-bench MP.
Now, in an even more dramatic development, Wirral District Labour Party – representing Labour members in the entire Wirral peninsula – has echoed Wirral West in damning the behaviour of Labour officials, elected and unelected in an open letter.
It has also asked Labour General Secretary Jennie Formby to launch an immediate formal investigation:
The comment about ghost-writing spin-doctors refers to the SKWAWKBOX’s exclusive revelation that the ‘author’ of a centrist councillor’s vicious resignation letter was not the councillor, but a PR professional closely linked to the council leader.
The allegations on the Wirral are a dramatic representation of the behaviour of the Labour right across the country as so-called ‘moderates’ scrabble to hold onto control at a local level.
The condemnation of using the serious issue of bullying as a political football could also be applied to other themes – as could the response the letter recommends.
