Alastair Campbell expelled from Labour Party

Alastair Campbell expelled from Labour Party from Labour Party

Tony Blair’s former spin doctor says he has been expelled from the Labour Party after voting for the Liberal Democrats in the European elections.

Labour’s rules make support for a rival candidate an ‘auto-exclusion’ event. Campbell will, of course, have been well aware of this fact when he announced it.

Alastair Campbell, a lead campaigner for another Brexit referendum, said he was “sad and disappointed”.

He said he voted Lib Dem “to try to persuade Labour to do the right thing”, but “always will be Labour” and appeal.

A Labour spokesman said supporting another party was “incompatible with membership”.

Mr Campbell revealed he had voted Lib Dem during the BBC’s election night broadcast on Sunday.

A petition was raised to demand that Alistair Campbell is expelled from the Labour Party for voting Lib Dem in the recent European elections:

‘ As per Chapter 2 of the Labour Party Rules, of the Party who joins and/ or supports a political organisation other than an official Labour group or other unit of the Party, or supports any candidate who stands against an official Labour candidate, or publicly declares their intent to stand against a Labour candidate, shall automatically be ineligible to be or remain a Party member, subject to the provisions of Chapter 6.I.2 below of the disciplinary rules.”
Labour heartlands helped promote the petition raised to expel Campbell after his overt display at supporting another Party.
