Expelled activist Marc Wadsworth is taking Labour to court

Marc Wadsworth: We should all stand up against the injustice that Labour has done to him.

Marc Wadsworth, expelled from Labour on a daft charge of ‘bringing the party into disrepute’ after it was proved that claims of “anti-Semitism” against him were false, is launching legal action against the party.

And who can blame him?

He told Skwawkbox this would be a test case for the many members who have been falsely accused and unfairly treated – members like This Writer; I am in the midst of writing an answer to unjust and fabricated anti-Semitism charges from the Labour Party at the moment.

Mr Wadsworth, who is crowdfunding his action, added that it was “a pity” it was necessary at all.

I am also crowdfunding for legal action against my own accusers, including the Labour Party and those who have fed it the false claims about me. If you would like to contribute to that fund, please visit my JustGiving page.

Labour and black rights activist Marc Wadsworth, who played a key role in supporting the family of murdered teenager Stephen Lawrence through their campaign, is about to formally initiate legal action against the Labour Party.

Wadsworth was expelled over an exchange with Labour MP Ruth Smeeth at the launch of Labour’s Chakrabarti report – widely misreported by the media and Ms Smeeth’s supporters as on grounds of antisemitism, but this is untrue as the party downgraded the charge to one of disrepute after it became apparent [a] widely-available video of the incident showed no antisemitic behaviour.

A letter from Wadsworth’s legal team will be sent to the party [today, August 1], with formal proceedings expected to begin next week. The team includes QC Martin Westgate, who successfully represented Labour members in their fight to overturn Labour’s decision, under former general secretary Iain McNicol, to exclude them from voting in the party’s leadership election, as well as solicitors from the highly regarded firm Birnberg Peirce.

    Good news but totally unnecessary because the invariable defence from Labour is likely to be funded from members subscriptions. Let us hope that the new General Secretary, Jennie Formby and Gorden Nardell QC have the good sense to embark on some form of alternative dispute resolution.
