Labour Insolvent, 30 Days from Bankruptcy
David Hencke has a round-up this morning of the debts coming due for the Labour Party taken from the Electoral Commission’s updated records released yesterday. He also reveals that NEC members threatened to resign unless they were indemnified for their potential liabilities.

The Co-operative Bank is calling in £2.61m in loans, Unity Trust Bank owned by the Co-op and the unions has a further £1.54 m due at the same time. In total £7.45m is due next month. Money that Labour simply does not have. Guido is willing to risk buying Labour Party debt at 10p in the £1…

The position of general secretary is still vacant. Guido is surprised.
