Luke Akehurst's Tweet

A lot have made some heavy weather of Luke's tweet and it may seem harsh, especially to those who are unhappy with Ken Livingstone's candidacy (a position I can understand), but the fact is Luke is stating the obvious.
According to the Party rules anyone who openly supports another candidate who is standing against the Labour candidate faces expulsion. That is my understanding anyway and it is fair enough if you are a Labour Party member and to be honest I'd expect the same of the Conservatives and Lib Dems taking a similar attitude.

Oh we generally take the same view, though some on both sides of the European debate like to pretend they're thrown out for their views rather than their actions. However to the best of my knowledge we have not had one rule for London mayoral candidates and another rule for everyone else.
