Labour Suspend Dissident Councillor

20 year-old Jake Morrison’s last ditch plea to Miliband to save his position in the party has fallen on deaf ears. Luciana Berger’s attempt to purge him yesterday has been successful:

It does seem particularly unfair that a young councillor just beginning his career in politics, who has given his life to the party, should be knifed merely because he had the temerity to stand up for himself rather than toe the party line. Even more so considering he was forced out by Berger, when surely a councillor should be accountable to his voters rather than his local MP. Dissenters have been warned…

      Let’s see if the people of Liverpool really do stand by their own.

      This says it all

      Three l i z a r d s fucking up the Labour Party, hopefully for good…

      The Guardian

      “In autumn 2010 Graf got a call from Maurice Glasman, who had just been made a lord by Miliband, in recognition of his community organising work. Glasman told Graf he should move to the UK and start working with Labour’s new leader: “I wasn’t paying attention to UK politics,” says Graf. “My first question was: ‘Who’s Ed Miliband?’ When he [Glasman] explained, I said: ‘I’m honoured, but you’re crazy.'””

      I wouldn’t buy a second hand car from Arnie Graf

      Nor from Miliband, Glasman, Glasman or Berger”

      That makes four l i z a r d s BTW

      Worthy of gutter politics in Chicago….

    Jake Morrison says:

    Dear Ed Miliband MP,

    Thursday 5th May 2011 was the proudest day of my life. I had just got elected as a Councillor for Wavertree Ward on Liverpool City Council. I was the youngest ever councillor in Liverpool, and beat Lib Dem Lord Storey who had served for 38 years. You called me on the Friday afternoon – to my absolute surprise – to congratulate me on my election win.
    When I decided to stand for election, I was a 17 year old lad from Walton Road in Kirkdale, Liverpool. I went to a state school and had dropped-out from sixth form, with average GCSE results a few months before. I grew up, and still live in, a poverty stricken area – with a great sense of community. Both my parents were unemployed, and had split up when I was younger. I spent over 18 months working for The Royal Liverpool Hospital as a Healthcare Assistant before I got elected. None of my family have ever been anyone who is anyone in the Labour Party or wider politics – they are completely disengaged from politics all together.
    In April I announced to the Labour Group in Liverpool and Wavertree branch members, that I would not be seeking re-selection in 2015. I painted half a picture, to leave with dignity. After this, there has been numerous smear tactics used to try and force me out sooner – to cause a by-election, and this has been orchestrated by Luciana Berger. I have knocked on members doors, who have told me that less than 48 hours after announcing I was stepping down, Luciana and Sheila Murphy had telephoned them to convince them I needed to go sooner rather than later. Luciana, Sheila and Cllr Helen Casstles had all also called the Chief Whip, to urge him to put it to me that I needed to resign – which happened just 3 days after I had made the announcement. I even had to call in the Regional Director to confirm I could stay until 2015.
    As Leader you have made it very clear that you would like to see a more representative parliament. Here we have in Luciana, a privately educated MP from London, who has came to Liverpool and made my life unbearable. At every opportunity Luciana has undermined me, rather than supported. This is in contrast to other MPs, most supportively Maria Eagle, who even offered me a post in her constituency office working part-time, which was perfect.
    Luciana Berger’s arrival to this City was not a comfortable one. It was covered in questions and claims of parachuting in candidates from London. And do you know what – I still campaigned every single day during the long campaign in the Wavertree constituency. I worked shifts on the wards in the Royal Liverpool Hospital, I would go to Labour HQ after an early shift, or before a late shift, and do as much or as little as I could offer.
    Ed, I have put my heart and soul in to serving the people of Wavertree. In February 2012 you even recognised this, in a speech to Labour Youth Conference. I am comfortable saying that I really do believe I have made a positive difference for people in Wavertree. I have worked to bring back a sense of community, pulling people together – while also dealing with specific personal issues. It is suffice to say that if I wasn’t receiving this treatment from Luciana and her team, I would be absolutely determined to carry on.
    I have attached for your information, the complaint that Luciana has sent to me, the Liverpool Labour Group Leader & Chief Whip.
    I would much rather prefer to be putting my time and energy in to working for the people of Wavertree, than pleasing the local MP. I trust that the people of Liverpool will judge my work by what they can see.
    As Luciana is a member of the Parliamentary Labour Party, and a Shadow Junior Minister, I would absolutely urge you to interject and put an end to this nonsense once and for all. I can’t believe that as someone who was a keen UNISON rep, and principled Labour member, I feel pushed out of the LABOUR PARTY. I will not be resigning my membership of the party, but I appreciate that because I have went public with this issue, disciplinary procedures may need to take place. But I can only try and assure you that this was the final straw, and I could take no more.
    With Regards,
    Jake Morrison

    Dear Jake

    I understand from your tweets that you have been knocking on members’ doors. As you will be aware from the many emails that Sheila has sent you, and which you have sadly ignored, we have had a training session with Arnie Graf from which the Wavertree CLP Members’ ID scheme was launched, and we now have a very comprehensive agreed script and process. Indeed we went out on Tuesday with an Old Swan councillor to start the activity off, and which was very successful.

    You have not replied to any of the emails confirming your availability for the summer campaign which includes member engagement. You have not visited the office to collect a copy of the script, which includes a list of all the forthcoming CLP events which we are inviting members to. You have not engaged with the constituency in some time and have chosen not to discuss your facebook/twitter resignation announcement with either the officers of the CLP, branch, your co councillor or indeed myself.

    Of the 14 Labour councillors in the Wavertree Constituency you are the only one who chooses not to engage with my office, or get involved with our constituency activities. I have also had a number of complaints raised with me about your behaviour and action with regard to the Heygreen school going into special measures and the MANWEB field.

    I am copying in Joe and Alan Dean by way of a formal complaint about your behaviour and your complete lack of team work and respect for other members.

    I would appreciate a response

    TWO Labour councillors, suspended since the autumn, have had been reinstated.

    Clr Hitesh Patel (Great Sankey South) and Clr Chris Vobe (Culcheth, Glazebury and Croft), the son of MP Helen Jones, were told the news last week.

    Clr Vobe was interviewed by police but was not charged after prosecutors said there was a lack of public interest in the case, He did not want to comment, but the Guardian understands he was pleased with the outcome.

    A spokesman for the Warrington North Labour party said: “ “Cllr Chris Vobe has been entirely exonerated of any wrongdoing and leaves this matter behind with an unblemished record. Any ‘suspension’ was entirely administrative, and in place merely until enquiries were concluded.

    “The eventual outcome was never in doubt. Clr Vobe has never been suspended from membership of the party and has continued to sit as a Labour councillor.

    Which does not tie in with what the CPS said.

    The Crown Prosecution Service said there was enough evidence to charge Warrington Labour councillor Chris Vobe, but it was not in the public interest to do so.

      Guido, please ask Keir Starmer why it was not in the public interest. Such cases always stir public interest far more than the routine stuff that goes on in courts up and down the land every day. How much did this pointless and fruitless investigation cost us?

      PS When is Starmer due to retire/resign?

        I am and always will be left wing, and will manage the CPS to the best of my ability to protect my comrades in the Labour Party, whether in Westminster or in local government.

    Surely the senior executives of the Labour movement have a responsibility to curb the immature excesses of this young upstart. The party needs to trust the judgement of the mature and ‘battle hardened’ leaders such as Berger and Millibund.

    Otherwise, the opposition would become host to any old corrupt, self promoting, careerist, thieving, hypocritical, incompetent, intellectually bereft, self deluding, inadequate, sexually dysfunctional, dipsomaniac nobody.

    And we wouldn’t want that, would we?
