Footage shows just some of the outcry that forced annual general meeting to be abandoned last night
As the SKWAWKBOX reported exclusively last night, the annual general meeting of Barking CLP (constituency Labour party) was abandoned amid ‘absolute mayhem’ last night after hundreds turned up to vote that many suspected only just joined the party and were therefore ineligible under Labour’s ‘8-week rule’.
The SKWAWKBOX has obtained footage from the meeting that gives an idea of the level of anger and chaos that arose:
According to witnesses present at the meeting, many in the meeting believed that the ineligible members were there to help re-elect an executive committee friendly to Ms Hodge ahead of the selection contest she must face since being ‘triggered‘ by the right of the local party.
Those objecting to the new attendees included a former protégée of Ms Hodge, who was heard repeatedly shouting that the meeting was being rigged.
