Red Len Accuses Staggers of Publishing Untruths Says Never Called For Blairites to Be Sacked

Speaking of awkward letters, union fat cat Red Len McCluskey has written to “all Unite MPs” and New Statesman editor Jason Cowley accusing the Staggers of “distortion”, “sensationalism” and running “untrue” statements from his interview with George Eaton in April. McCluskey reckons “George was intent on a particular story and was not leaving until he had this story” and insists he never called for Liam Byrne and other Blairites to be sacked:

Apparently Unite will now “regard all approaches from the New Statesman with deep suspicion”. Standard practice really…

UPDATE: George Eaton hits back here, in turn accusing McCluskey of “inaccuracies and innuendos”.
