SO, Len McCluskey has spoken. According to him, it’s a misuse of Labour Party funds to settle with whistleblowers who dared to criticise the party’s handling of anti-Semitism, and suffered for their honesty.

Does he also feel that it was a misuse of Unite the Union’s funds, to the tune of £75,000 plus costs, to pursue Anna Turley, former Redcar MP?

Incidentally, that case was lost.

Could this be Mr McCluskey’s first strike in moving towards a Parliamentary career?
