In July 2016 we reported "According to Pink News "The out Labour MP [Angela Eagle] has allegedly faced ‘harassment’ and ‘intimidation’ since announcing her plans to stand against the party’s current leader. Angela Eagle has been subjected to “homophobic abuse” since resigning from the Shadow cabinet and revealing her plans to challenge current leader Jeremy Corbyn, according to a senior Labour politician. Speaking on Daily Politics earlier today, Baroness Tessa Jowell said members of Labour’s Parliamentary Party had been subjected to “intimidation, abuse and fear” in the wake of a vote of no confidence in Mr Corbyn last week."
That allegation was allowed to fester away and impact on the Labour leadership challenge of 2016 and any elections held.
The CLP was suspended with obvious negative impacts in respect to party conference and more.
Now here we are February 13, 2017, and there is an announcement via Wallasey CLP on social media saying "Wallasey "This is huge to the people of Wallasey! There was never any basis to these accusations anyway. Now we can fight the tories properly."
The tweet is accompanied by the following;
Will today's news be widely reported?
Will the mainstream media so quick to share last year's allegations be apologising?
Will the CLP be reinstated?
How will Angela Eagle be ale to work with her CLP after raising such phoney allegations?
