Further to our post earlier today, the Liverpool Echo has more on this story:
It’s now public knowledge that the target of Crabtree’s alleged offensive phone message was Louise Reecejones, a one-time fellow Labour councillor.
Back on July 9th, in advance of the forthcoming leadership race between Angela Eagle and Jeremy Corbyn, I sent an email to all Labour councillors asking who they’d be backing in this contest:
This was responded to, and very quickly, by just one councillor, Louise Reecejones, and we can see from checking on Twitter that she’s a follower of Jeremy Corbyn:
I’ve no idea who Jim Crabtree will be backing but a quick glance on his Facebook account reveals he’s a fan of something called ‘Britain First’, motto ‘taking our country back’. and likes to help by sharing their posts to his friends.
Here’s an earlier post we did re: who’s supporting whom in Labour’s leadership ballot amongst Wirral Labour councillors.
