Blair spin doctor expelled under rule banning support for other parties
Former Blair spin-doctor and current campaigner for a so-called “people’s vote” Alastair Campbell has been expelled from the Labour Party after stating on radio that he had voted LibDem.
Labour’s rules make support for a rival candidate an ‘auto-exclusion’ event. Campbell will, of course, have been well aware of this fact when he announced it.
The SKWAWKBOX understands that the decision was taken at the weekend but notification could not be sent until the end of the bank holiday break.
This will not, of course, prevent the Establishment media treating Campbell as a go-to for anti-Corbyn comment, but the party is better for his self-inflicted departure.
