TONY Blair’s former propaganda chief Alastair Campbell has declared he will “always” be a Labour supporter despite now being expelled from the party… for voting LIBDEM.
Party officials have acted against die-hard remoaniac Mr Campbell after he admitted to voting Liberal Democrat in last week’s European Parliament elections.
He said that he found the move “particularly sad and disappointing” as it “comes on a day when actually, finally, the Labour Party seems to be trying to move to what I would define as a sensible, credible, coherent position on Brexit”.
The position he speaks of is to call for a second referendum or falsely-named ‘People’s Vote’ – an act that would completely destroy the democracy that millions fought and died to protect, and betray the people of Britain who voted overwhelmingly to leave the European Union.
Senior Labour figures have used the EU election results, in which the party came third behind the Brexit Party and Liberal Democrats, to suggest Labour should more clearly support a second EU referendum, in a clear demonstration of how the party is interested only in exploiting Brexit tensions and securing votes.
Mr Campbell, a prominent Remainer and advocate of the People’s Vote campaign for a second referendum, said: “I don’t believe I voted against the Labour Party, I believe I voted in the best interests of what the Labour Party should be doing.”
The ex-Downing Street director of communications, who served under war-mongering liar Tony Blair, said he did not want to be treated differently from any other Labour member – but claimed senior people in Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn’s office had previously recommended voting against Labour.
He also pointed out how Comrade Corbyn once congratulated George Galloway on defeating a Labour candidate at a parliamentary by-election in 2012.
