Pro-Len Activists Binning and Burning Coyne Mailshots

A member of Unite’s ruling body has bragged about burning election mailshots sent by Len McCluskey challenger Gerard Coyne, prompting suspicions that a concerted effort is underway to block Coyne campaign materials from reaching members while voting is underway. One pro-Len account posted a video showing an activist throwing Coyne materials into the back of a refuse truck. Meanwhile, Ivan Monckton, who sits on Unite’s executive council, tweeted that “the pack of stuff” he received from Coyne’s campaign “went on fire”…

Another member of the executive council, Kate Osborne, sent a similar tweet. And here a Unite shop steward boasts of binning Coyne leaflets intended for his members… 

A source told Guido:

“There’s been enough of these incidents in the past few days to know it’s not a coincidence. Two weeks ago Len’s chums threatened to sue their own members if they handed out our newspaper. Now it looks like they will stoop to any level to interfere with the democratic functioning of the election by trying to stop Gerard’s message reaching the members. It’s desperate stuff and shows they have realised they are losing.”

Red Len’s footsoldiers doing his dirty work…

Quote of the Day

Dominic Raab wrote in his letter of resignation…

“This is, at its heart, a matter of public trust,” he told the PM, concluding: “I cannot reconcile the terms of the proposed deal with the promises we made to the country in our manifesto at the last election… I believe that the regulatory regime proposed for Northern Ireland presents a very real threat to the integrity of the United Kingdom. I cannot support an indefinite backstop arrangement, where the EU holds a veto over our ability to exit…”
