I knew this article was coming; I put Ms Millward in touch with iNews reporter Serina Sandhu.

The piece doesn’t cover every aspect but it at least shows that there is a court case against Mr McNicol over this course of action, and that many Labour members think it is wrong and do not want to be associated with it.

By the way, if you are a Labour Party member and you want to add your support to Ms Millward (and remove it from Mr McNicol, who claims he is acting on your behalf), please visit http://test-this.co.uk

A suspended Labour supporter is taking the party’s General Secretary to court for compensation over the distress caused by being unable to vote in the leadership election.

Glynis Millward is just one of many Labour members who have been suspended in what shadow Chancellor John McDonnell has described as a “purge”. It was claimed the purge was about trying to diminish support for Jeremy Corbyn.

Ms Millward, 56, claims she was suspended by the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) on 9 September over her “involvement in activity in breach of Labour’s rules regarding recruitment” and was notified through a letter signed by General Secretary Mr Iain McNicol. She has denied being involved in recruitment for the party and said the letter left her feeling “angry and ashamed”.
