Labour starts purge of its Scottish hierarchy
Alex Rowley, a key figure in Labours Scottish election campaign has been
dismissed by Blairs purists in London making it clear YET AGAIN
to Scotlands stupid Labour voters that Labour in Scotland is STILL controlled
by, and for the benefit of London.
John Lambie, a key Labour figure himself and STILL inside Labours top level
Scottish staff said "Alex Rowley has been a
victim of the nest of vipers that have been operating in Delta House [Labour's Scottish headquarters in Glasgow]."
"There's no way we can accept or tolerate this kind of interference from Millbank (the area where the office is located). One of the things that I will insist upon is
that the executive seeks - indeed demands - a full explanation from the UK general secretary."
