‘NEC attack’ on Willsman is fake news – he hasn’t even been discussed

Peter Willsman

Rumours have been circulating that today’s meeting of Labour’s National Executive Committee (NEC) is in uproar as NEC member Peter Willsman is being attacked and demands are shouted for his resignation. These rumours are wholesale fake news.

Multiple sources actually inside the meeting tell the SKWAWKBOX that the meeting is cordial and orderly, Willsman is calm and his position is in no way either attacked or threatened – in fact, he has not been mentioned at all as a topic for discussion.

No prizes for guessing why some so-called sources talking to the mainstream media might want to suggest otherwise after the right’s catastrophic results in yesterday’s NEC elections, but since when was malicious fake news from the Labour right anything unusual?

  1. I’ve listened several time to (Watson’s) illegal tape and have yet to come across any antisemitism, what’s going on, surely this is not politically motivated by our disloyal right wing MP’s.

  2. The only way to resolve these non existent uproars is for these meetings to be videoed. Every single one.

  3. Who in the NEC is leaking this stuff? Could it be labour staff? Ann Black? Izzard?

  4. Yes, there were a few trolls dissembling this false and phony story in the Guardian Comments section today. In fact the Tory/Establishment trolls were kept very busy today trying to counter what most posters were saying – ie that the vast majority of the claims of anti-semitism in the LP are bogus and contrived and manufactured, or words to that effect.
