Treacherous ‘Labour’ campaign chiefs may have robbed the party of the 2017 election

A traitor to his party? Labour’s former general secretary Iain McNicol is among several suspects who may have helped engineer a Conservative victory in the 2017 general election.

Yes, ‘Labour’ – you have to put the word in quotation marks when describing these people because they do not in any way represent the party or its members and should be removed at once. Enough is enough.

It seems these people deliberately tried to sabotage Labour’s 2017 election campaign by manipulating social media advertising to ensure that it was targeted at the party leadership and known left-wingers, rather than the wider audience that would have benefited from it.

According to this Guardian article, the non-Corbyn-loyal members of the GE17 campaign team were Patrick Heneghan, Iain McNicol and Emilie Oldknow.

Which of them were the traitors? Or did they all conspire, against the national interest, to re-elect a Conservative government? And was anybody else involved?

Jeremy Corbyn must launch an investigation and expulsions must follow.

Astonishing new information has revealed that had it not been for the actions of a small number of disloyal anti-Corbyn Centrist Labour Officials who actively worked against the democratically elected leadership in the run up to the election, the Labour Party may well have been able to gain the extra votes they needed to form a government.

A new book written by Ed Miliband’s former Director of Communications, Tom Baldwin, has revealed that a number of so-called ‘moderate’ Labour Campaign Chiefs secretly refused to run numerous adverts devised by the Labour leadership team because they did not approve of the left-wing messages contained within them.

The Labour Officials are said to have been able to deceive Corbyn and his leadership team by specifically targeting the [online] adverts at the Labour leader and his closest allies, rather than the voting public as they were meant to.

The deceitful Labour Officials believed that adverts such as one urging people to register to vote were not worth spending money on, and instead decided to pour the money into running adverts with different messages.

Corbyn’s manifesto – entitled For The Many, Not The Few – was leaked early, with rumours emerging at the time that the same so-called moderate Labour Southside Campaign Chiefs who were later to deceive him had leaked the document in the belief that it would be widely ridiculed by the general public, and in order to hasten Corbyn’s exit as leader.

However, rather than go down like a lead balloon as the leakers had presumably imagined it would, the manifesto was received with adulation by both the general public as well as, astonishingly, a large section of the corporate media.

    Surely “Toothy” McNicol and his treacherous cronies can not just be expelled from the Labour Party but charged with misappropriation of Party funds which in my opinion constitutes fraud.

    reminds me of Salmon..(not Alex either). Salmon swim against the flow of the river to be able to reach their spawning beds…. dont know about anyone else but i can really understand what it must be like for those poor fish……… we, members of the labour party seem to be continually swimming against the tide made up of the conservative party/dup/ukip/ etc and now worse still, our own chiefs within the party. people we trusted.. no wonder we can only get so near but not near enough each time. Ed Milliband when leader got so very close to winning, then took a dive overnight at the GE back then. i am now wondering just how many underhand dealings were being dealt at the GE2017 by all those within and without the labour party and why?
