Reliable sources tell me that Sue Ellis and Alan Atkin who have both received letters from the Labour Party informing them they are to be investigated over the CSE issue were due to be suspended and removed from their positions ( Ellis as Area Assembly Chair and Atkin as Chair of the Planning Board) but Lo and behold John Healey has stepped in with his NEC hat and stopped them getting suspended.
Word has it that Ellis has some incriminating evidence that puts Healey in the frame by way of having extensive knowledge of the CSE due to his close relationship with Stone and Wright.
I am sure people will already know that Glyn Whelbourn has resigned from his position as the Chair of the Scrutiny management board after receiving a similar letter.
We can conclude a couple of things from this, first Healey is protecting his mates rather than protecting the children and secondly Lakin has proven to be as spineless as was predicted by many inside and outside of the Labour Party, surely if he sacked 3 Cabinet members because of the “letters from the Party” then he should have removed Ellis and Atkin from their respective positions until the conclusion of the enquiry from the Labour Party.
Ellis and Atkin have no honour, integrity or self respect.
Oh nearly forgot, Alan Atkin is john Healey’s election agent for the forthcoming general election.
