Angela Eagle has allegedly been subjected to homophobic slurs from her opponents, it has been reported.
A formal complaint by her constituency party members seen by the Guardian alleges that the MP for Wallasey was called “Angie the dyke” at an official meeting in June, which she did not attend.
Sounds rather more descriptive than insulting really.
The complaint adds that people are blocked from leaving meetings and at the AGM when the LGBT officer was elected some delegates” started limping their wrists to each other and laughing”.
Seems they have some fairly tough attitudes up in the Wirral then.
Note that this is all internal Labour Party stuff. And the British working class has always been rather more socially conservative than the urban intelligentsia quite understands….
