Formerly-Labour MP John Woodcock – who resigned from the party rather than face a disciplinary process over ‘sex-pest’ allegations – was under fire from Labour members in his Barrow and Furness late last year for continuing to use Labour livery on his constituency office months after his resignation, until he semi-removed it last month by sticking tape over the Labour name and logo:
Locals now report that he has finally taken the step of redecorating and removing the Labour branding altogether – and has gone to the
