Labour to accuse five ex-staff members of leaking antisemitism report​



Extract:
Labour is set to accuse five former party staff, including Seumas Milne and Karie Murphy, of leaking a controversial internal report on antisemitism, prompting them to hire lawyers to defend themselves against the claims.

Labour has lodged papers at the high court seeking to place responsibility for the leak on Milne, Murphy, Georgie Robertson, Laura Murray and Harry Hayball, according to lawyers for the five. Carter-Ruck said they would “vigorously defend themselves” in legal proceedings and seek full reimbursement for their costs.

The report, titled The work of the Labour party’s governance and legal unit in relation to antisemitism, 2014–2019, was leaked in April 2020 with damaging consequences.

The document, which was intended for, but never submitted to, an investigation by the equalities watchdog, alleged that staff had worked to undermine Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership and sent a number of abusive messages about senior figures. Critics of the report said it was leaked in an attempt to “smear whistleblowers” who had exposed antisemitism.

Anyone care to take a bet that she DOESN'T get sent down? I'm pitching that at the most she will get a suspended sentence and could carry on as an Independent MP.

Lock her up
You can't say that, it's racist . . . . :censored: You'll have the united weight of BLM outside your front door, and God help you if you have a Ring installed !!!

She could have used the Johnson Guppy defence if she was bright enough, she could have become Prime Minister.

What's that please? I thought a guppy was a fish.

Will Keith Vaz be standing for her Seat if a byelection is called?
Now there's a thought, he was seen at the Labour Party conference.

Labour spending more on legal battles than campaigning, say sources​



Extract:
As action against ex-Corbyn staffers looms, falling membership is also hitting finances.

The toll of the ongoing legal action is putting off potential donors.

Labour is spending significantly more of its cash on fighting its legal battles than on political campaigning, sources have told the Guardian, after lawyers for the party opened a new front in the party’s legal turmoil this week.

Party sources said last year campaigning was Labour’s fourth-highest spend, behind costs linked to legal cases.

This week’s naming of five of Jeremy Corbyn’s closest staffers in legal action alleging responsibility for leaking a contentious report marked a new chapter in the war between two sides of the party. The report, which contained private WhatsApp messages, aimed to demonstrate bitter factionalism among staff but has prompted legal action from many of those named.

One senior source described the situation between the two sides of the party as “full-blown lawfare” – comparing it to how competing governments in South American countries have attempted to take down each other.

Yes, the Labour Party should be more like the Tories ..... and and instead use taxpayers money when you need legal defence. £1Mil and counting.

Is Government ramping up costs to silence us?

Correspondence with Government has revealed they expect to spend a staggering £1 million defending our judicial review of their decisions to award contracts criticised by the NAO. This is a sum unprecedented in our lawyers’ experience of judicial review proceedings. We can’t but wonder whether they are trying to scare us off – using the bottomless public purse to avoid accountability to the public.

No, I was agreeing. :LOL::ROFLMAO:

That Labour rather than have the problem Tenpin pointed out "The toll of the ongoing legal action is putting off potential donors." They could always follow the Tory line and use taxpayers money up to the tune of £1mil and counting ... :LOL::ROFLMAO:

And wasn't you that said ..... quote Chips "Oh is that a crime now?" ...."These threads jump all over the place." ???? :unsure::LOL::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

And then went on to give us another one of your sermons about the Tories.
"Labour going forward" equals Labour going nowhere.

Your little ditty's alter nothing, the Labour Party are responsible for blowing our political system up.
I've no sympathy for Starmer because he never stood up to Corbyn & co at the time, he just went along with some of those decisions.
