Labour expels party member for expressing SNP support on social media | Politics | The Guardian

Quite right too.

At least one Labour party member who expressed support for Nicola Sturgeon’s SNP on social media before the general election has been thrown out of the party, it has emerged.

The party took the extraordinary decision just two weeks after the election via a letter, informing a “Mr McLean” of Labour’s membership rules and his consequent exclusion from the party until 2020.

More worrying is this tweet by Jamie Ross, who publicised the letter but who clearly does not understand his own address:

For clarity, Jamie should know that he lives in the UK and Labour is a UK political party. All cleared up now? Good.

    How childish,no wonder the Labour Party is in turmoil……

      Those are the rules, and this person would have known them.

      1. Joan Edington

        I agree with these rules wholeheartedly. However, in Scotland, many people are now wondering if this is really the way for Labour to win back their voters.

      2. Mike Sivier

        That’s a matter for them and their consciences.

    That’s a laugh when the Labour Party campaigned on a pale blue Tory manifesto, can’t tell your Asses from your Noses, can you?

    1. Mike Sivier

      Tell me, John – what aspects of the Labour manifesto were particularly Conservative in your view?
      The plan to end the Bedroom Tax?
      The plan to reverse the privatisation of the National Health Service?
      The plan to increase wages across the board?
