Labour probe into quisling comment ‘still ongoing’

THERE’S an interesting update emerging tonight in the row from a few posts back about Labour Party members in dispute with each other over a) the future of West Hampstead, and b) the use of words like ‘quisling’ in the criticism of councillors and party policy. Former councillor Neil Fletcher had confirmed last week he was asked to apologise for his choice of language in articles published by the local press last year, but had declined the invitation to do so. An official from the party tonight says his refusal did not draw a line under internal disciplinary process (the length of time the internal review into this has taken had suggested to many it had) and that the issue is ‘still ongoing’ with further action possible. Mr Fletcher has said this would all be ‘news to him’.
