Labour First have hired a full-time henchman to undermine Jeremy Corbyn - but are they telling porkies about their crowdfunding success?
The right wing reds have recruited one Matthew Pound, a member of Streatham CLP, which backed Owen Smith in the leadership contest. To rustle up the necessary pieces of silver, they set up a crowdfunding appeal to cover his salary. Last week they gleefully announced that they were 'within £3,000' of their £40,000 target.
'Over 450 people donated!' said secretary (of Labour First - not just a secretary) Luke Akehurst 'This will hugely increase our capacity as we have previously relied entirely on volunteers'.
