Akhtar’s finished, but Labour don’t know how to tell him?
From the moment of Andrew Norfolk’s first exposures concerning the Rotherham CSE Scandal, Jahangir Akhtar was on borrowed time, as far as his Labour Membership was concerened?
Labour briefly suspended his membership, in fact for the second time, the first was when he had been convicted of the crime of affray, a reminder for those without long memories and the second piece of the jigsaw.
Labour relented and restored his party card. Little doubt with some assistance from the same solicitors that suceeded in saving Naz Ahmed’s Labour Membership card, on two ocasions but not the third.
By now comfortably back in control, Jahangir Akhtar installed himself as the Labour Candidate for Rotherham West. Things didn’t exactly go to plan, when the voters rejected him last May, oh dear!
The publication of the Jay report saw the beginning of Akhtar’s now third, period of suspension. The Casey Report, exposed the failures she had encountered, for us all to see! The Casey report also exposed Akhtar as a bully, who had exerted ‘undue-influence’ along with others on the decision making of Officers!
Jahangir Akhtar is all but finished then, but Labour seem not to want to tell him? At least, not this side of the General Election any way?
Naz Ahmed eventually resigned, if Jahangir Akhtar had any shred of decency or honour left, he would resign too, and save the Labour Party the trouble!
Why might that be? He has already done more than most, to bring the party into disrepute!
For the answer, we need to go back to Naz Ahmed and his three suspensions? The help of Steve Smith was crucial to the first two restorations of his Labour Party card but when Naz Ahmed’s words on Pakistan TV were exposed, the third restoration was one too far even for one of such talents. Naz Ahmed you see, had made the mistake of revealing that his prosecution and incarceration in a British prison “was the fault of an International Jewish conspiracy!”. Needless to say Naz ended up leaving, the day before his expulsion was to be announced!
Jahangir Akhtar would be expected to do likewise and engage Steve Smith’s services, perhaps that’s what is causing the delay in Akhtar’s expulsion from the Labour Party, fear of what’s to come, once they act?
Three strikes and you are out, remember’!
