Blair COULD be expelled from the Labour Party for supporting The Independent Group

Under suspicion: Tony Blair may have believed he was above the rules that affect all members of the Labour Party. Let’s hope he’s proved wrong.

Yet again, Vox Political has proved itself to be ahead of the crowd.

I said Tony Blair should be expelled from the Labour Party after he broke party rules by speaking in support of the new Independent Group.

Now it seems independent journalist Liam Young has matched my words with actions, calling on the party’s compliance unit to launch an investigation:

Note that he echoed my words. I stated: “Everybody in the Labour Party is equally subject to the rules. Right?

“But will Labour’s complaints department – known as the compliance unit – take action?


“As the anti-Semitism row has shown, this part of the party is dedicated to supporting the privileges of party representatives, rather than the rules – or the rights of the membership to see those rules supported.”

In fact, current rules say memberships should not be suspended unless there is a danger of them adversely influencing other. As a former party leader who, although yesterday’s man, still has some clout, Mr Blair clearly qualifies for suspension under this rule.

Evolve Politics has reported on this, and its article is well worth reading.

Members of the public seem to be in support of a suspension:

    He should, no doubt about it. But can you imagine the media furore? In the current climate whatever action Labour take will be seized upon to further the negative portrayal of them.

  2. Michael McNulty

    The timing of MPs moving to this group is being orchestrated by somebody sponsoring them, which means they’re far less independent than they were within their old parties. So before they said much else they all lied about their name and what they stood for.

    He should be expelled just for being tony Blair because the name should not be synonymous with Labour

    There will be too many so called Labour voters ranting on about Iraq. Ever since Murdoch was jealous his wife fancied Blair, even Labour supporters can only go on about Blair and Iraq. Who even remembers how Tories had made us so deeply involved with USA in the region, we couldn’t have left if we wanted? It isn’t surprising so many people want to leave EU because they want less people from Pakistan coming here, as they don’t know where Europe is.
    When Thatcher didn’t like EU preventing upper classes, bankers and corporations mistreating most British people, such as EU saying workers should have enough breaks and genetically modified ingredients should be labelled, the secret service whistle blower David Shayler told how she was going along with USA funding Al Qaeda against Gaddafi. A country people didn’t pay household bills, while more old British people were dying of cold than before.
    Then Thatcher helped cause Lockerbie by making Britain only country that allowed USA to use us as airport to bomb Libya which killed many. Other countries wouldn’t give them air space to make them fly around and Queen was upset at having such an uncaring PM.
    Then John Major made us 2nd largest force in 1st Iraq war, and then despite more British people being killed by USA friendly fire than Iraq, he committed us to staying in the region as 2nd largest force, so we had so many troops, equipment and contracts we couldn’t have left if we wanted. Who even remembers more Tories spoke in favour of 2nd war against Iraq, and more Tories voted in favour of it? When people go on about Blair and war crimes, why do they forget we wouldn’t have gone to war if more Tories hadn’t voted yes than other parties?
