CLIVE LEWIS has been expelled from the RMT’s parliamentary group after having made a “false and defamatory attack” on a railway worker.
Conference delegates at the union’s annual conference in Manchester said that the Norwich South MP was “unfit” to represent the RMT after he compared member Eddie Dempsey to fascist leader Sir Oswald Mosley in a tweet several months ago.
Mr Dempsey was also called a “Tommy Robinson apologist” by Mr Lewis, who recently threatened Jeremy Corbyn that his position as leader is “in peril” if he does not commit to an anti-Brexit position.
Delegates condemned Mr Lewis’s attack on Mr Dempsey, a former RMT national executive committee member.
Others accused Mr Lewis of having done too little work in Parliament for railway workers after his name wasn’t mentioned in the extensive report given by Labour MP and RMT parliamentary group chair Ian Mearns on Monday.
