We all know the story. Ken Livingstone made some historically accurate points in support of a Labour MP who had been accused of anti-Semitism, in what may be considered a clumsy way…
So John Mann and a camera crew ambushed Mr Livingstone on a BBC staircase and turned the matter into a media circus.
The timing was such that Mr Mann could have caused all kinds of damage to Labour’s local election campaign. As it was, the party managed very well, but we will never know how much it could have achieved without the intervention.
It has since been suggested that Mr Mann’s intervention was intended to push Mr Livingstone off Labour’s NEC – if so, then this tactic has been successful.
This man needs to be shown that such underhanded behaviour will not be tolerated.
John Mann MP, appallingly unprofessional and toxic behaviour to a fellow respected MP. Regardless of the argument – the harassment was totally opportunistic and beyond reprehensible. You are not at liberty, Mr Mann, to single-handedly bring the Labour Party into disrepute.
