Good.

Homophobic abuse? Death threats? These have no place in the election of a leader for the Labour Party.

This Writer was not aware Ms Eagle was gay until all this nonsense started happening and, having found out, I don’t care. Her romantic affairs are none of my business.

The only possible reasons anyone should want her to stop her leadership bid are political – because we think her ideas are wrong for Labour and wrong for the UK. It is entirely possible to demonstrate this without engaging in abuse or threatening violence.

As for the brick that went through her office window – we still don’t know whether this was a ‘false flag’ attack, or what. There’s certainly no reason a local Labour member would do it, considering the repair bill would come from party funds.

Where was the burglar alarm? Why is there no CCTV footage?

A man has been arrested on suspicion of making threats to kill in an email to Labour party leadership contender Angela Eagle.

Merseyside police said a 44-year-old suspect was being questioned following an arrest in Paisley, Renfrewshire, on Friday.

A police spokeswoman said: “A 44-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of making threats to kill. Officers from Merseyside police executed a warrant in Paisley, Scotland, this morning, Friday July 15, and arrested [a] man. He will be questioned by Merseyside detectives today. The arrest comes after an email was sent to the account of Wallasey MP Angela Eagle.”

On Tuesday, it emerged a brick was thrown through the window of Eagle’s constituency party office – a day after she announced her leadership challenge to Jeremy Corbyn.

Following the incident, Paul Stuart, the co-vice chairman of the Wallasey constituency Labour party, said it was not an isolated incident and that Eagle had received a series of “really vile” homophobic emails and telephone calls.
