Labour should expel Woolas

Labour MP Phil Woolas is currently on trial in response to accusations that he made and published false statements of fact in relation to the personal character or conduct of his Liberal Democrat opponent at the last election.

I would be quite surprised, based on the evidence provided so far, if Woolas were found guilty in strict legal terms. But even if he manages to escape prosecution, the campaign which he chose to run and the leaflets that he put out were vile and disgusting racist filth.

The Labour Party constitution says that when someone's behaviour is "bringing the Labour Party into disrepute through behaviour that is prejudicial or grossly detrimental to the Party", they should be expelled. You only have to look at the leaflets, or at newspaper headlines like "Ex-minister 'tried to stir racial hate'" to see that Woolas has brought the Labour Party into disrepute.

I hope that once the trial is over, the Labour Party sends a clear and principled anti-racist message by withdrawing the whip from Phil Woolas and expelling him from the party.

Not the first time .The Crewe By election was full of anti Pole propoganda.
If I were a constituent I would be chiefly offended by the insult to my intellgence .We all know who is responsible for the floods of foreigners arriving every day. New Labour.We also know it is at least in part out of an active dislike for the Englishness of England ( See Neather)

Hard to see what point there is in exprelling Woolas when qwe are talking abouit a Party 30% of whose voters name the BNP as their second choice and who regularly stir up racila hate as oftem as they blame everyone else for doing it

I was wondering earlier. If he loses the court case, he isn't merely removed from Parliament, the election is annulled and he is deemed not to have won in the first place, right? That's my understanding, anyway.

It would be odd, in those circumstances, if his vote were the one that tipped David Miliband over the winning post in a close election. Of course, it would be even odder if the Leader he has represented at campaign events across the country were to turn round and expel him!
