A whiff of further scandal has been scented from east of Aldgate. I have just been sent an exchange of emails possibly providing prima facie evidence of a further contravention of Labour Party rules by a clique that helped deny Lutfur Abbas of the Labour nomination to run for the post of elected mayor of Tower Hamlets.
The author operating under the psuedonym BhaiComrade is not known to my source. But s/he knew my source's Labour Party membership number.
Replying to a round robin my source was told emphatically by BhaiComrade:
..........member xxxxxxxxxx is not on is not on approved list.
I'm confident Luke Akehurst as a newly elected member of Labour's National Executive Committee will be first to demand an investigation into this possible group within a group contrary to Rule.
