Labour Activist: Party Told Me Not to Report Rape Claim

Labour activist Bex Bailey tells the BBC the party told her not to pursue a rape allegation after she was attacked by a senior colleague. Bailey says she is waiving her right to anonymity to speak out. She was told not to report it because it might “damage” her.

“It took me a while to sum up the courage to tell anyone in the party. But when I did, I told a senior member of staff, who told me… or it was suggested to me that I not report it, I was told that if I did it might damage me – and that might be their genuine view, it might be that that was the case in which case that shows that we have a serious problem in politics with this issue anyway.”

The most serious revelation yet…

Quote of the Day

Trevor Kavanagh’s analysis of the Brexit process…

“Thanks to Mrs May and her useless Chancellor Phil Hammond, this will not come without pain. But we escape with imagination and true British grit or we will be boiled alive.

It means on this centenary Remembrance of our struggle against tyranny, we risk ceding non-military victory in Europe to the undemocratic forces of an unaccountable totalitarian regime.”
