Now I won't say who has been threatening me because that would be unfair and I still hope he will change his mind. But I have been told that if I don't extract myself from Messagespace I will be painted as endorsing every offensive comment or article on the Guido Fawkes site, that of Devil's Kitchen, Iain Dale and every other right winger on the system.And they delight in telling us that the Tories are supposed to be the "Nasty Party". Don't make me laugh.
I have been told that I don't have Labour values by owning shares in Messagespace though, frankly, I feel more guilty about not checking where my tiny pension pot is invested. I have been told that there will be a campaign to rubbish me in the Labour Party and this will inevitably reflect badly on Labourhome.
Alex Hilton is a selected Labour Party candidate (for Chelsea, of all places). There are only three people who would have the power to really put the wind up him, threaten his parliamentary candidacy and put the future of LabourHome in jeopardy - Derek Draper, Charlie Whelan or Tom Watson. OK, there may be more, but in these circumstances, these are the three most likely candidates.
I know which one my money's on.
Isn't it time that responsible Labour bloggers like Tom Harris, Luke Akehurst & Co rang up the General Secretary of the Labour Party and told him what he should do? I suspect he knows already.
UPDATE: In the comments on Alex's post, Jag Singh says he has also been threatened. And Tom Harris, to his credit, writes this...
Alex, I need to take issue with your headline: someone who threatens you in this way cannot be described as a "comrade", even if he is a member of the same party. I admire your reticence in not publishing his name; I would not show the same discipline were I to receive similar threats.
So, go on Alex, who was it?
