Suspend Tony Blair from the Labour Party with immediate effect – template

Another template readers can use for submitting e-mails to the Labour Party’s complaints team – at

To whom it may concern,

I demand the immediate suspension of membership of former-MP Tony Blair. By explicitly backing the new ‘Independent Group’ of MPs that has broken away from the Labour Party, he is guilty of, in effect, campaigning for a different party, given the group have made clear that they aim to form a new party in the near future. This is an express violation of the party rules. Clause I, section 4, sub-section B expressly identifies as an ‘Exclusion’ from the party, as follows; –

A member of the Party who joins and/ or supports a political organisation other than an official Labour group or other unit of the Party, or supports any candidate who stands against an official Labour candidate, or publicly declares their intent to stand against a Labour candidate, shall automatically be ineligible to be or remain a Party member

(Emphasis added.)

‘The Independent Group’ is, by its own self-description, a political organisation other than an official Labour group, therefore any Labour member supporting it is ineligible to remain in the party.

I demand Blair’s membership be suspended with immediate effect, and a full and rigorous investigation into his conduct past-and-present be undertaken, with a view to his possible expulsion.

With polite regards

    He needs going. He doesn’t speak for us, Hes had his day, and look what he did!

  4. […] But apart from attempting to present the Independents’ zombie policies as something living and dynamic, Blair’s speech is remarkable for something else: it breaks Labour party regulations. These explicitly state that no Labour party member may support or promote a rival party. By these terms, Blair should be thrown out. One Tweeter, Socialist Bangers, has already sent a message to the Compliance Unit in the Party suggesting that they should get rid of Blair. Martin Odoni, a great friend of Mike’s blog, was so incensed that he has also put up a specimen letter for others to use demanding Blair’s expulsion. See:… […]
