To no one’s surprise, other than the shear brazen contempt for Labour party members’, the internal Forde inquiry report has been postponed indefinitely.
Starmer launched the investigation a year ago in an attempt to bury shock revelations in a leaked official report exposing prolonged and serious political and electoral sabotage by many of the party’s senior paid officials.
It was not so much the report’s detailed proof of a top-level 5th Column that bothered Starmer but that the 851 page report had been leaked. He wanted to nail the leaker/s.
The Forde inquiry was supposed to have reported last July, then by October, then December, then January and now, probably never.
Barrister Martin Forde QC has told the party that his four man team of the great and good will only release their findings once the Information Commissioner’s Office parallel inquiries into the leak are “completed and resolved“.
Senior staff named in the leaked report sued the party. Though lawyers said the party would win any court case Starmer chose to apologise to the plaintiffs and pay them £600,000 in costs and damages.
Some of these ex-officials have been or are being readmitted to the party after they were suspended for several months for breaking party rules. Not a single person named has been expelled or even faced expulsion.
