Suspended Labour right-winger campaigns as if nothing has happened

Neil Coyle: he’s breaking Labour Party rules to get around his suspension as a Labour MP.

There’s something rotten in Keir Starmer’s Labour Party if this kind of rule-flouting is being allowed.

Here’s Skwawkbox:

In February, Neil Coyle was suspended from the Labour party after making a racist comment to a British-Chinese journalist. Under the party’s rules, while suspended he no longer holds the party ‘whip’ and is no longer a Labour MP – and is not permitted to use the party’s logo, attend ‘CLP’ meetings or stand for election as a party representative in any election.

Nonetheless, Coyle was revealed last week to be texting Labour members to ask them to support his reselection as a Labour candidate at the next general election, but the Labour right is going much further than that – allowing him to campaign with them and helping him deliver his own leaflets along with Labour-branded literature, essentially presenting him as a Labour MP despite his suspension.

With the typical arrogant impunity of the Labour right, Coyle tweeted a picture of himself out campaigning with Labour members, saying what a ‘good…delivery session on the doors’ it had been.

This person should not be campaigning with other Labour members, using material featuring the Labour logo or – in any way – seeking reselection as a Labour candidate, especially if he is using Labour data to do so.

The evidence is available for anybody to see (click the link to Skwawkbox below for more) and the Labour leadership should take appropriate action against Coyle immediately.
