Following our closing comments on our Exclusive : Will Frank Field have the Labour Whip withdrawn? story we have never been so pleased to be proved wrong as last night the Birkenhead Constituency Labour Party voted 59-13 (with 2 abstentions!) to pass the motion to remove the Labour Whip from Birkenhead MP Frank Field.
Although we have always maintained that the soul of the local Labour Party could only be saved by local members throwing off their shackles and challenging the corrupt cabal that has brought the reputation of the local Labour group so low we never thought we’d see the day.
However it would seem that day has dawned as we woke up to the news of Field’s momentous defeat and so it would appear that Birkenhead CLP are also ,in the modern parlance , woke.
There will be some very nervous Field acolytes in the wake of this astonishing defeat.They will be in the bunker plotting and scheming and planning their escape routes. However they must know the allies are closing in … #Wirralgate.
