Tom Watson's Digital Manager sent an email to me regarding scrapping the fee for domestic violence victims.
This is my reply:
'Attn ****** ******* – Digital Manager and Tom Watson MP – Deputy Leader of the Labour party
I support this campaign but I do not support Tom Watson – and cannot tweet him since he has blocked me for having the temerity to tell him that I disapprove of his disloyalty to Jeremy Corbyn, Leader of the Labour party.
It has obviously escaped your notice that I am one of the thousands of Labour members who have been rejected by the Compliance Unit. The allegation of ‘abusive behaviour’ has been levelled at me solely because I retweeted two tweets that had hash-tagged words which the Compliance Unit chose to ban – three weeks after I had used them.
How ironic that I stand accused of ‘abusive behaviour’ by one unit of the Labour party - whilst receiving emails from another unit asking for my help in supporting people that have been abused – people that in my thirty-year career in social care I have fought for – victims of domestic violence, child abuse, adult protection – there is not much that either of you can tell me about abuse that I have not already experienced.
When you work with people who really have been abused, then the misuse of the word by a bunch of unqualified clerical staff is laughable – were it not such a vile slur on my character and that of others.
I am fully aware of why I have been purged. Unlike Tom Watson – I do support Jeremy Corbyn – and I will do this whether I am a member of the Labour party or not.
I have always been a believer in natural justice.' I sat on this for three days but today I thought - ah - what the hell...
Many thanks to Ceri Brabham for sharing
