A councillor has been suspended from his own political party after concerns that he was not acting “comradely” enough.
Haringey Councillor Gideon Bull has had the whip withdrawn by the Labour Party – which means he no longer represents the party, and will not receive financial or political backing from Labour.
In an email, Cllr Liz McShane, chief whip of Haringey Labour, said that Cllr Bull had been punished for not toeing the line on party policy over closures of adult care services.
Obviously the local Labour Party didn’t care about adult care services and when he spoke out they considered it to be a threat to the only thing the Labour party cares about. Namely, the Labour Party.
