Grow Up And Get Over It

I have not had time to check whether this has appeared in any of the several newspapers to which it was sent, but the Chair of the Labour Party should note that it would have had between 50 and 100 signatories if it had not been for the campaign against me by the nominally Labour Leadership of Durham County Council:

Dear Sir,

We fully support Ian Lavery MP against the smear campaign to which he is being subjected. Even the regulator imposed by the Thatcher anti-union legislation found that he had done nothing wrong, and even the BBC, of Orgreave infamy, broadcast its latest attack on him in the graveyard shift that is Newsnight on a Thursday when Question Time is on. Those who resent a national politician with Mr Lavery’s accent, or lack of a university degree, or whatever the supposed problem may be, are just going to have to grow up and get over it.

Yours faithfully,

David Lindsay, journalist and activist, Lanchester, County Durham 
Ronnie Draper, General Secretary, Bakers, Food and Allied Workers Union
Dave Smith, Blacklist Support Group
