I know that the Labour Party has stated the candidates can stand for re-election under the present cicumstances, but doesn’t it send the wrong message to the electorate.

How can a party, which cannot conduct itself in accordance with democratic process, which then results in suspension, be allowed to represent us in an electoral ballot.

This party has made too many mistakes and costly decisions and believes itself to be “untouchable”.
