What is the campaign to make Gerard Coyne the next general secretary of Unite doing with Owen Smith‘s old Labour leadership email list?

Nobody should have that information now – even Mr Smith, or his campaign managers, should have destroyed it as the information was only available to them for a single purpose that no longer exists.

Now we are hearing that the Coyne campaign has access to other email lists as well – also in breach of the Data Protection Act.

Steve Walker of the Skwawkbox blog is submitting information – about all the data apparently being used in violation of the law – to the Information Commissioner.

This Writer looks forward to the announcement of an investigation into how this information came to be used in this way. It will be interesting to see who comes under suspicion.

Clearly Mr Smith will have questions to answer, as will all those who had access to the other databases. But how, exactly, did Mr Coyne gain access to them?

Mr Walker writes:

Now, who would be sufficiently senior in Labour’s leadership and/or in Labour’s staff to have access to multiple, national contact databases – and would want to help Coyne’s campaign that clearly aims to damage Jeremy Corbyn?

He says the list of names cannot be very long. This Writer agrees.

Whose name comes to your mind?
