Alastair Campbell Expelled from Labour For Voting Lib Dem

Alastair Campbell has finally been expelled from the Labour Party, after giving the Leader’s Office the excuse they had been looking for for years.

Sad and disappointed to receive email expelling me from Labour particularly on a day leadership finally seems to be moving to the right place on Brexit, not least thanks to tactical voting by party members, including MPs, councillors and peers who back a second referendum.

I was not intending to publicise this at this stage, but have had calls from friends in the Party telling me it is now widely known and likely to be leaked. I have been advised by lawyers with expertise in this field I have grounds for appeal against expulsion and shall do so

I am and always will be Labour. I voted Lib Dem, without advance publicity, to try to persuade Labour to do right thing for country/party. In light of appeal, I won’t be doing media on this. But hard not to point out difference in the way anti-Semitism cases have been handled.

[There is] plenty of precedent of members voting for other parties/causes. Some are now senior Party staff. Approach also contrasts with our era when TB was being pressed by whips to withdraw whip for JC and others for persistently voting against Labour in Parliament, and he said No.

Bold from someone who was keen to boot out supporters of other parties at the time of Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership election…

UPDATE: He knew what he was doing…
