Any, Keith has sent a Motion to the NEC, which is seconded, barring JC standing as a Labour MP in Islington, the motion, all over Twitter, is highly vindictive, he's being Barred because if he stands as a MP again it will ruin Labour's chances of winning the GE (That's the meat) No mention of AS or anything else - so, a new precedent for the Party, if you lose a GE you are banned from standing again come next GE. Basically, Keith was too much of a coward just to expel him, so is using fun and games. Usual gushing of tears from the 'stupid' Labour Left, evidently they did not understand that the removal of the Whip by Keith mean't he would never again be endorsed to run - the sheeple believed the CLP chose, rather strange given the realities, i.e., imposed GE candidates everywhere, seems like they don't read the press or understand the internal machinations of the Party. Me, well, having spend 5 years in Leicester East CLP under the authoritarian boot of Valarie Vaz ( Keith Vaz's sister) surprised soft left members are shocked.
