Here is a hard-hatted Labour supporter captioned “Andy, docker” in the party’s manifesto:
Ordinary “Andy” looks remarkably similar to Andy Green, the Unite convenor at Tilbury Docks and a member of the union’s executive council.
Green proudly boasts that he attended the infamous 2006 dockers’ protest in Strasbourg, which descended into widespread violence.
The BBC reported that “protesters threw firecrackers, stones and metal missiles, smashing windows and causing considerable damage”. 13 dockers were arrested and 12 policemen were injured. But this is how Labour’s poster boy described the day, alongside a picture he posted of the chaos:
“It made me proud to be a docker, to be there fighting for my fellow dockers, fantastic solidarity.”
Green also gave a 5-star review to the ‘Union Thugs‘ Facebook page.
Surely they cannot be the same docker named Andy?
Labour are investigating…
