Labour MP Christina Rees loses party whip – but is she really a bully?

This Writer is familiar with Christina Rees, from my time as a member and officer of the Brecon and Radnorshire Labour Party.

I find it hard to believe that she would engage in any activity that could be described as bullying.

She was Jeremy Corbyn’s shadow Wales secretary, though, and I wonder if this is another attempt to discredit a member of his team.

A senior Labour MP has been stripped of the party whip after allegations of bullying her constituency staff, the Guardian can reveal.

Christina Rees, who was shadow Wales secretary during Jeremy Corbyn’s time as leader, will now sit as an independent in the House of Commons.

It is understood that there will be an internal Labour party investigation into the allegations and Rees, the MP for Neath, will have her party membership suspended until the case is resolved.

Local party members claimed that several of her staff had made detailed statements, which they said were backed up with evidence, to Labour headquarters about claims of bullying.

In a statement, Rees said: “There has been a complaint made against me to the Labour party, which is under investigation and I am therefore under an administrative suspension until the process is concluded. I’m not aware of the details of the complaint but I am fully cooperating with the investigation.”

Perhaps we should follow this story carefully.
