The SKWAWKBOX understands that one and likely two candidates in Labour’s National Executive Committee (NEC) by-elections are about to be suspended by the party after complaints were made against them.
The identity of at least one of the candidates is likely to cause huge anger, especially after Momentum’s announcement of its ‘slate’ of two candidates this evening already provoked criticism.
The news appears to already be in circulation among well-informed Labour sources, as the SKWAWKBOX has received a stream of calls this evening asking whether it is true. It is.
The SKWAWKBOX is aware of the two names, but will not publish them until it can be sure that the candidates have been informed.
