Hebburn South councillor Eddie McAtominey is today celebrating the fact that he’s still a member of the Labour party .. at least for now.
Last week Mr Monkey revealed that the former cabinet member and convicted drink driver faced a battle to stay in the Labour party after being suspended for his conduct in relation to his drinking habits. This chimp also told bloggers that council leader Iain Malcolm was working behind the scenes to get the regional offcie to throw him out of the Labour party. CLICK HERE.
Councillor Malcolm sees councillor McAtominey is the only real threat to his leadership.
Mr Monkey can now reveal that councillor McAtominey has been given a reprieve after Labour North decided to refer the matter to the national party at Labour central office in London.
It seems no one in the North East wants to make the decision to remove councillor McAtominey from the Labour party and this chimp can’t help wondering why; does councillor McAtominey know too much about you and your cheating antics Iain? It was Eddie who got you the ballot box with the secret compartment wasn’t it?
