At least a dozen supporters of incumbent MP denied access to ballot meeting – while hundreds of postal votes appear
Supporters of incumbent Ilford South MP Sam Tarry have been denied entry to this evening’s selection ballot meeting to decide who will represent Labour at the next general election.
Tarry faces off against right-wing favourite, Redbridge council leader Jas Athwal, who was reinstated by the party after Labour’s disciplinary unit failed to present sufficient evidence to a right-dominated panel of National Executive Committee (NEC) members, after ‘serious’ complaints of sexual harassment against Athwal.
And while Tarry supporters have been denied entry, Skwawkbox understands that around six hundred postal votes have ‘turned up’ at the meeting. No information on who those votes support is yet available.
