MacShane – Some Points To Ponder For Rotherham Labour Members

For MacShane himself, this outcome may end up being the political equivalent of the ‘poisoned chalice’, in that he has not proved his innocence at all, it was simply not possible to establish a case ‘beyond reasonable doubt’, in the criminal courts.

I suspect that the lower test in the Civil Courts of, ‘on the balance of probabilities’, will be enough to deter the sprinkling of defamation writs around if one were to express doubt about his innocence.

Certainly in the court of public opinion he is now irretrievably damaged goods and voters will react very badly, if they are presented once again with MacShane as their Labour Candidate at the next General Election!

Rotherham Constituency Labour Party now has a public service to render to the people – to rid us of this dishonourable, loathsome and greedy MP and chose someone in whom we can all take pride and place our trust!

See the breaking news: What a difference two years makes?

What a difference two years makes?

Two years ago the Rotherham MP had the Parliamentary Whip withdrawn, Labour’s statement read thus:

“Following a referral by the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards to the Met Police Service, the Labour Party has today suspended Denis MacShane from the Parliamentary Labour Party and the Whip pending the outcome of any investigation.”

It has been announced that the Met will take no further action!

Labour today stated:

“In view of this decision the Labour Party will lift its administrative suspension of Denis MacShane with immediate effect.”

An email came in as this post was being prepared, can’t resist letting you see it:
