Wallasey Labour Party remains suspended despite collapse of allegations

The allegations of homophobic abuse, bullying and intimidation levelled by Angela Eagle and her anonymous and cowardly supporters against Wallasey constituency Labour party (CLP) have now collapsed due to the fact that there was absolutely no credible evidence. This comes on the back of a recent freedom of information request to Merseyside police which confirmed that the so called brickgate scandal was reported before Eagle had even announced her leadership challenge to Jeremy Corbyn. Despite this Wallasey CLP remains suspended and some Labour members are still currently under investigation by the Labour party machine.

Angela Eagle was presented by Labour party regional office as a candidate in 1992 and was not selected by local members. The full results of that selection meeting were never released to local members. Events of recent months have made it crystal clear that there is no prospect of compromise with the Blairites who control the Labour party machine. If and when Wallasey CLP is reinstated, moves should be made to instigate a trigger ballot to enable the removal of Eagle and a candidate selected by the local party of their choosing. Eagle and her cronies have now been exposed and completely discredited. Another real scandal here is that there has been no mention of this within the local or national press. Back in June they were all falling over themselves to blame Corbyn's supporters.
