EXCLUSIVE: Kate Hoey Seeks Damages From Labour Party Members
Remember THIS story? Well I've been leaked the two letters above (click on the images to enlarge), which show that Labour MP Kate Hoey is seeking financial compensation, in her capacity as chairman of the Countryside Alliance, for the damage caused to the CA stand at the Labour Party conference last year by three Labour Party members.
She is seeking £1,000 from each of them. Nothing like a bit of fraternal solidarity! I understand the Labour Party has banned the three of them from the Manchester conference, so there can be no humiliating handover of cheques. What a shame. It seems the Countryside Alliance is again exhibiting at the conference. Let's hope their 24 hour security won't be [terrible pun] outfoxed [/terrible pun]... I'll just get my coat...
Seriously, Kate Hoey is a woman of great courage. I just wish she'd do just one more courageous thing. And I think you know what I mean.
