Labour staff breached party rules by surreptitiously enabling the election of rivals of party candidates

The party and its agents therefore breached its contract with the claimant and its non-contractual pact with the voting public of the UK.

At stake is the democratic principle of party politics underlying the country’s social cohesion and integrity.

On the evidence, arguably a different government should have been in position ever since June 2017, the 2019 general election should not have occurred and the enactment of the result of the EU referendum should have been done in a different manner.

The subversion of democracy that apparently has taken place is rather like gamblers paying a goalie to let in his team’s opponent’s goals.

Some who should be MPs of 3 years' standing and others who have a story about 2017 to tell may be able to join the claim

A dispassionate judgment will clear the air and get politics back on track.

Court of Appeal decides keeping the report off the court record was not wrong

There was a development last week.  The Court of Appeal determined that it was not wrong of the High Court to allow the Labour Party to keep the leaked report off the court record (by stalling over specifying redactions it said were needed first) while the court was considering the legal basis of my action.

So I lost that aspect, although not very surprisingly.   The main issue - the legal basis of the action - has yet to be determined, due to a last minute change of judges. 

Last week’s decision means I will have to pay at least some of the party's costs, probably more than £10,000. I am now going to apply to the High Court to get the figure moderated based on the precedent set at subsequent hearings, where they were told in advance to have one counsel not two.

Also my counsel may need to do some more work at short notice.

As a consequence of these developments I now need to progress toward the target as quickly as possible.  I emphasise there is no guarantee of success but teasing out the initial suspensions last June and thoroughly airing the potential legal claims arising from the general election campaign of 2017 will have been invaluable, even if success at trial is not achieved.
