Cllr Piper persona non grata with Labour?

Filed under: Politics, UK — notsaussure @ 6:57 pm

Cllr Bob Piper, proof that independent thought still exists in the Labour Party, at least in the West Midlands, and author of an excellent blog, is wondering if he’ll be allowed to go to the Labour Conference. He writes,

I received confirmation of my registration in Early August, but to date… no credentials, agenda, etc. So I phoned the Conference arrangements people, who confirmed my registration on their computer. However… they said… we haven’t had your clearance back from the police!!

After 30 odd years membership, having held virtually every Branch Labour Party position, having sat on the interminable Constituency Management Committee for over 20 years, and 7 years a Labour councillor… this is what it has come to. Some member of Her Majesty’s constabulary is going to decide whether or not I am a fit and proper person to go to Party Conference. Thanks a bunch!

Possibly someone’s been reading Cllr Piper’s blog and, spotting the Cost of the War in Iraq ticker he’s got running there, fears another Walter Wolfgang episode might end up with Cllr Piper on Labour’s NEC.
