Simon Danczuk threatens legal action over Labour suspension
Exclusive: Solicitors for MP who sent sex messages to teenager demand explanation for action ‘detrimental to his reputation’
Simon Danczuk, the Labour MP who was suspended after being caught sending sexual text messages to a 17-year-old girl, has threatened to take legal action against the party over its conduct during the investigation into his behaviour.
The MP for Rochdale sent a legal letter to Iain McNicol, the party’s general secretary, on Friday which claimed he had received no explanation for his suspension or been told how long it would last.
Written by the legal firm Bindmans and seen by the Guardian, the letter says the suspension is damaging Danczuk’s career. It warns that he could take further action unless the firm is told within three working days which rules have been broken and how a subsequent inquiry will proceed.
