Corbynite ultra Chris Williamson has been hounded out of the League Against Cruel Sports in an acrimonious row about the charity’s management.
In recent months the MP, who has been a member of the League since 1976, had become embroiled in a row with the charity’s management which saw him accuse them of seeking to hack the Countryside Alliance, which supports hunting.
He has since lead a campaign calling for the suspension of the League’s Chief Executive.
The League accused him in turn of “supporting others campaigning against us” adding that “Chris has done this after being expelled from the League” and characterising his campaign against the charity’s board as “disgruntlement and foot stamping”.
A second statement goes even further, saying that Williamson “was expelled after he supported someone who was abusing League members of staff. He was offered 12 opportunities to make his case to trustees – that he did not accept these offers suggests he had no case to make.”
It’s been a particularly bad week for Chris Williamson who saw his attempted coup at Parliament’s Venezuela APPG rebuffed by counter-revolutionaries. A Labour source said, “the truth is Chris sabotages everything he touches.”
