Corbyn aide Andrew Fisher, the crackpot who wrote abusive tweets about Labour MPs and backed a rival party, has been let off with a warning by the party’s NEC and had his suspension lifted, reports PA. Worth noting that Corbyn supporters have a majority on the NEC. Are Danczuk, Reeves, Flint et al going to take that?
UPDATE: Damning statement from Caroline Flint and Siobhan McDonagh:
“We are disappointed that the Labour Party has decided not to proceed with a full disciplinary inquiry by the NCC into Andrew Fisher, and instead issue a slap on the wrist. The Chair of this investigation has been subjected to huge pressure, and this has compromised the independence and integrity of Labour’s disciplinary process. It is unacceptable for members to support other parties, delight in Labour MPs losing their seats or to engage in cyber-bullying. Others have been excluded from our party for less than the activities of Mr Fisher. It would appear that there is one rule for members and one rule for those who work for the Party Leader.”
