Welsh left-winger ousted in favour of Blairite after rigged contest
Cynon Valley MP Beth Winter has been deselected in favour of Blairite Gerald Jones in a ‘contest‘ that locals believe was a ‘stitch-up’ from start to finish.
Ms Winters has tweeted her disappointment in the lost – reportedly by just 16 votes despite the party machine’s efforts to stack the selection against her – for the new constituency to be created in the coming boundary changes and has detailed some of the measures used by the party to ensure Jones’s ‘victory’:
However, party insiders told Skwawkbox:
This was a machine stitch-up from start to finish, there was no way they were going to let Beth win even though she’s by far the better MP.
Rigging in other constituencies has seen bullying and intimidation, ineligible voters allowed to cast votes, shady postal votes and alleged impersonations at ballot meetings to oust Left-wing MPs in favour of odious right-wingers as Starmer’s cowardly and morally-bankrupt purge continues, as well as the usual fare of denying left MPs the chance to speak to members – or even simply barring them from standing while smearing them for good measure. Details of the precise manoeuvres used against Beth Winter are expected imminently.
The Starmer regime’s tactics give away the fundamental lack of substance, morals and political ideas of the Labour right, along with the nastiness that seems to be a requirement for membership of that faction.
Ms Winter has said she is considering her options. She should certainly stand as an independent against the rotten corpse of Labour and its toxic regime.
