Labour deny suspension of Leigh Farrow from Brighton and Hove City Council

Councillor Leigh Farrow

Councillor Leigh Farrow

First published in News

AN internal party inquiry has been launched into a councillor’s treatment of fellow Labour members.

The Argus understands the probe is looking into the behaviour of Brighton and Hove City Council councillor Leigh Farrow.

It had been rumoured that the ward councillor for Moulsecoomb and Bevendean has been suspended by his party.

But in a spokeswoman from Labour’s South East region office denied the claims.

She said: “Councillor Farrow is not and never has been suspended.”

The Argus called Coun Farrow on both Wednesday and Thursday but he did not reply.

The council’s Labour group, senior councillors and Brighton Kemptown parliamentary candidate Nancy Platts all declined to comment on the situation. The party also failed to clarify rumours that Coun Farrow had been de-selected from standing at next year’s local elections

Yes it is amazing how he uses the Media for his own benefit but as the Leader should be clarifying this situation.

Given yourself away there NickBrt, are your Labour subs up to date?

There are many good and decent people that are in and vote for the Labour Party nationally and locally, but unfortunately those at the top put the pursuit of power before the city. Only the other week they were trying to encourage the council to not take £8 million to improve Victoria Gardens because they believed it would play to the gallery (the money could not be spent on anything else!).

If Labour members and voters put tribalism to one side and chose who to vote for on the basis of principal, policy and competency then Labour would be done for and a party named after a colour would do well.

I am glad that for once that the Argus is reporting the dodgy goings on even if it didn't quote Kitcat and Theobold (when it is the Greens, I note the opposition party leaders are always quoted).

Ooofff! Touched a nerve didn't I.

Which Labour council (plenty to choose from) has managed fewer cuts to services for the same reduction in budget? You surely must be able to find loads. I can point to many that have shut Libraries, children's centres, sold off playing fields, privatised services etc. A friend of mine in a Labour council is even now fighting to save the children's centre they run.

Then there is the disgraceful turning on the poorest to court the Daily Mail vote. Look how long it took Labour to come out against the bedroom tax.

Your leader was Environment Secretary, yet is almost silent on environmental issues. Labour is nowhere on the biggest challenge we face today.

I also notice our planes are once more flying over Iraq. The mess in Iraq will be a mark of shame on the Labour Party for a very long time to come.

Which Labour values attract you to the Labour Party exactly?

David Icke. Is that it? Some bonkers bloke that left the Green Party in 1990? In those days Labour were a socialist party.

You know, I could have looked the other way that an illegal war was prosecuted, as Saddam Hussein was a terrible dictator. No, for me it what was particularly unforgivable was the incompetence of the post war reconstruction hand in hand with the USA, neocons and free market Labour, what a toxic combination. We will be dealing with the repercussions for generations.

That is all off topic. Here we seem to have another classic example of Labour control freakery. Let the local party decide whom it wishes to have represent it.

The Labour members and voters are decent well meaning people, but the Labour Party is a spent force reduced to managerialism.

Where Labour went wrong when in power was to ditch their principals and lose purpose. I fear that organisation is unable to reform itself.

Well all I can say to that is if “Councillor Leigh Farrow” has been suspended by his party it’s a gave loss of one of the best Labour councilors hear in B&H one he lessons to what every one has to say and two stand by his morals witch I have to say most of the Labour Councilors DOTE! Councillor Leigh Farrow comes to most if not all Council / tenant / Residents meetings unlike most other Labour Councilors who just cant be bothered to turn up even after they have been invited and agreed to be there and I’m sorry to have to say this but the megacity of Labour Councillors hear in B&H dote lessen to what the people are telling them so maybe its them that need investigating for there behavior.

Seems Labour locally are adopting their National policy of sticking their heads in the sand and hoping it all goes away.

Trouble is sticking you head in the sand leaves another part of your anatomy ripe for kicking and the reds certainly deserve a good hammering in the next elections for the mess they left this country in after 13 years of Bliar and Brown.

David Icke. Is that it? Some bonkers bloke that left the Green Party in 1990? In those days Labour were a socialist party. You know, I could have looked the other way that an illegal war was prosecuted, as Saddam Hussein was a terrible dictator. No, for me it what was particularly unforgivable was the incompetence of the post war reconstruction hand in hand with the USA, neocons and free market Labour, what a toxic combination. We will be dealing with the repercussions for generations. That is all off topic. Here we seem to have another classic example of Labour control freakery. Let the local party decide whom it wishes to have represent it.
Iraq Invasion caused permanent radicalisation and aren't we all reaping what that sowed with a vengance. 9/11 was awful and the invasion of Afghanistan to try and get Bin Laden had a wide range of at least understanding if nor support. The invasion of Iraq to displace an admittedly awful dictator, but totally not an Al Quaeeda supporter, by Bush and Blair was the hugest mistake ever and long term gift to Al Quaeeda and similar recruitment.

Don't Warren about it. Sounds like it could be a farrowing occasion with Loves Labour lost. Let's put someone really bright and rational in charge Felim McTwatterty. Kit kat is be twix-t being the leader of the ship sinking at 20 miles an hour and taking a permanent break from politics. Or how about the marvellous Tories who a few years back spent a million pounds or more of our money, sacking the then Chief Executive and all his directors getting in Baradell and his over paid shower who all then(bar one) jumped ship and his system totally dropped. Blimey what else is there? Ukip- policies hate non-english people, stop men washing up and make smoking compulsory. That's no good. Oh dear. Bakunin? Lord Sucth...
