Conor McGinn, Labour MP for St Helens North, has been embroiled in a row within his local constituency Labour party (CLP) – after reporting a group of members to the police and publicising it in an article for Politics Home. Evidence has come to light that McGinn’s claims may form part of a continued smear campaign against the progressive wing of the party.

According to witnesses, on 7 July at around 7pm, 10 female members of the Labour party arrived at McGinn’s office at Century House in St Helens. The women were strangers to each other, and had arrived independently. They’d chosen to attend after being told by local councillors that a CLP meeting was taking place there, and a vote of confidence in Jeremy Corbyn was to be held.

Having been advised that there was a meeting going on, and directed to the appropriate room, one member said: “We went up to the room and the lights were on. We knocked but there was no answer, so we waited a few minutes – and then the lights went out. We kept knocking but nobody responded. After repeatedly trying we went down spoke to security. They had no clue so we left and all stood outside talking for a while.”

It was at this point that McGinn and some other Labour representatives exited the town hall (not Century House) opposite his office.

Another witness said: “None of us knew each other but had been told by councillors where the meeting was. After leaving McGinn’s office we tried the town hall but it was locked. We waited an hour and 40 minutes, but then saw McGinn and some councillors coming out of the town hall. When we first approached them they were laughing.

“We challenged them regarding the confusion over the venue, but they were very condescending and arrogant. There was only me and one other female member who actually approached him, and there was six males with him. But he said in his article we were intimidating him? He just did not like the fact that they had been caught being underhand and then challenged.”

So, it would appear that this group of members had been fed incorrect information about the venue for a CLP meeting; that McGinn and local councillors/delegates had conducted the meeting behind locked doors, and when questioned shrugged off members’ genuine concerns. But if you read McGinn’s comments in his article, you’d be led to believe that a group of thugs had ransacked his office, and threatened him so severely that he required police protection.

    This just shows how see the voting public! I’ve met mps in the past and some were very condescending some were very nice and polite, I guess you know what category he falls under! Their actions are truly undermining the PLP with the voting public, this could harm Mr corbyn in the next election, you can guess who they would blame any loss on!!!

    Yes, Thank you for the information Mike, just as I thought , a large proportion of the Parliamentary Labour party have a very unpleasant contempt for the very people who elected them in the first place and this incident proves it, the problem with Todays Labour party is not Jeremy Corbyn , one of only a handful of good , honest , principled people in the House of Commons, no the real problem is that Proven Liar Tony Blair turned the Labour Party into something that no longer represented ordinary working people at the same time as convincing the masses that he still had their interests at Heart, a clever confidence trick indeed, but I am afraid the result is a large proportion of the British Public can now no longer spot the difference between right and wrong, which is why Jeremy is quite right to Face down the 171 mp.s who are calling for his resignation, my message to the self serving trouble makers and assorted Human Trash who would say anything if somebody paid them enough is this ; go and form your own party and see how far you get, if your not prepared to offer the voting public a real alternative to the Tories then you most certainly do not deserve to represent the Labour Party.

    Embarrassed to have voted for this clown thinking he was behind the democratically elected leader. I sincerely hope these MPs are held to account for their actions. There was no mention of his opinion on Corbyn in any of the posted literature and I actually searched for it before voting.
