Exclusive: leaked report shows Labour paid general secretary Evans’s old company for it – still owned by Evans’s wife

Evans owned ‘75% or more’ of The Campaign Company. Now his wife does

A leaked report has revealed that the Labour Party has commissioned – and must have paid for – campaign advice from The Campaign Company. The report, ironically, warns Labour that it needs to win a bigger share of left-wing voters.

The Campaign Company belonged to the party’s acting general secretary David Evans – with ‘75% or more’ of its shares and voting rights – until he became acting general secretary last year. ‘75% or more’ of the shares and voting rights are now owned by Evans’s wife Aline:

The leaked report bears a ‘TCC’ logo, with the tagline ‘values first’:

The conclusions of the leaked report – which TCC is unlikely to have compiled free of charge

A visit to The Campaign Company’s website reveals the same logo and tagline, albeit in black and white:

Two weeks ago, Skwawkbox revealed that Labour had awarded a contract for the use of ‘Anonyvoter‘, a much-criticised online voting system, to a company owned by a Croydon councillor with links to Evans through Evans ally and former Croydon Council leader Tony Newman – without a competitive bidding process, according to the councillor who runs the firm.

Croydon Council also gave business to the company when David Evans ran it. Morgan McSweeney, Keir Starmer’s chief of staff, worked for the Campaign Company for some two years, according to Inside Croydon.

The Labour Party has been contacted for comment and to ask whether a competitive process was used in awarding the work to TCC. The Tories were recently found by a court to have acted unlawfully in awarding contracts to their supporters and donors.

  1. It comes as no surprise to find that New Labour mk2 are as seedy and corrupt as the proper Tory party.

  2. Does rather snooker any attempt to hold the Tories responsible for the Covid contracts scams.

  3. Bloody he’ll they are squating next door to the council offices.That was probably a strategic move to save writing cheques when cash is handy.Must have been like working next door to your own private bank.Do we know whether Evans or the leader have acess to members money 💰 in terms of authority.?….probably just blag it like all them south London bover boys.and thats basically how the Labour party runs nowadays..

    1. This is just another of an endless list of corrupt , cronyist, ‘deals’ being done between the ‘in-crowd’ of the Labour Right – across the Labour Party spectrum of Parliamentary to local council , areas of operation , that demonstrates yet again that it is not actually a coherent ideology that binds the Labour Right so firmly together against the Left , but endemic CORRUPTION, pure and simple. Unfortunately , generations long crony corruption has ALWAYS bound the Labour Right together within Labour, like a type of political criminal masonic lodge – and it is a very powerful motivator for very tenacious internal cohesion – against the Left – for what otherwise are just a bunch of self-interested human rats of individuals. Against this endemic corruption which has for generations held the Labour Right together, the naive, timid, idealistic, Labour Left has always proven to be a paper tiger – full of endless bold verbiage – always let down by constant accommodation and retreat (and a daft belief that sections of the corrupt PLP majority can be ‘won over’ to socialism, as long as the Left isn’t too ‘extreme’ with the socialist politics !).

      That deeply embedded internal corruption is the reason the ‘broad church’ Labour Party can NEVER be a vehicle for Left advance, The entire motivation for the corrupt malignant narcissists of the Labour Right is self-enrichment – and , as their endless sabotage of the Corbyn-led Party showed, they would prefer to lose elections, and split the party, than give up their opportunities for backhanders, and post political career seats on numerous big business boards- or comfy post MP sinecure seats in the House of Lords as rewards for destroying their own Party’s electoral Chances, as per Woodcock, Austin, et al.

      Only breaking decisively from the corrupt swamp of the broad church Labour Party offers any chance for Left advance. Carrying on, ‘fighting for Left advance’ – after yet another crushing defeat, is the ‘political strategy’ of fools and masochists, and that malign coterie of fake Left opportunist wannabe Labour MPs that infested , and still infests, the ranks of Momentum from its very inception, for instance.

      Labour will now NEVER win back Scotland, with its vital previous safe Labour 50 seats in the Westminster Parliament . Labour will NEVER win back most of its old traditional English ‘heartland’ seats either – and in May the Party will be crushed in the local government council elections in those areas too. The Starmerite NuLabour Party is a busted flush – heading ever more rapidly now for the same historical dustbin as PASOK and all the other corrupt, neoliberalised, European social democratic parties. the Labour Right have simply won back control of a drifting hulk of a party – just before it goes over the waterfalls of history . An opportunity for a new radical Left Party is now on the UK agenda. But, given the almost inevitable failure of the mainly middle class, mainly merely Left Liberal, UK ‘Left’ to seize that opportunity , the way is open for a new radical populist Right Party to fill that political space – spouting a toxic mix of pseudo radical ‘anti-elitism’ and a divisive , nationalistic, social agenda, as per ‘Trumpism’ in the US, or the radical populist Right across Europe today.

  4. Entwined in this web of corrupt practice is another company with links to David Evans, The Campaign Company. Brick by Brick was given a contract to build housing for Croyden Council, but to date nothing has been built. The company was eventually taken over and run by Croyden Council. The connection with Evans to the now council owned Brick x Brick company, via his relationship with Alison Butler, the deputy leader of the council which has been awarding contracts to TCC –

    An investigation into the non performance of BxB was undertaken by, you guessed it – The Campaign Company,

    “In October 2014, an 18-month council consultation for something called the Fairness Commission was initially awarded by Croydon Council to Quadrant Consultants. Quadrant then subcontracted the £130,912 deal to The Campaign Company –

    Chaired by the Bishop of Croydon, the Fairness Commission duly delivered its report, though it was late and mostly never heard of again. TCC put together the lavish-looking report, which used lots of lovely colour pictures, but had little else by way of substance.

    “It had all the look of a soft contract handed to Evans in return for other ‘services rendered’,” a Katharine Street source suggests.

    “Butler never made any declaration in the councillors’ register of interests over TCC, even though Evans is the father of her daughter from a relationship in the 1990s.

    In one case, however, there is documented proof that Butler knew that council work was being placed with Evans’s company. The council report, from 2016, was “noted” by Butler in her role as cabinet member for homes, regeneration and planning”

  5. There is just so much nepotism, malpractice and political corruption afoot in Starmer’s voided Labour Party, so much for the UK’s MSM! So, where are the journalists?
