From British daily The Morning Star:

MP’s resignation ‘a sign of Labour’s catastrophe’

Sunday 19 April 2009

LABOUR Representation Committee chairman John McDonnell MP warned on Friday that former MP Alice Mahon’s resignation from Labour was a sign of the “catastrophe” facing the party.

The former Halifax MP, who was a member for over 50 years, quit the party on Saturday, saying that the leadership had “betrayed” the principles that inspired her to join. …

Mr McDonnell praised Ms Mahon as one of the “most dedicated and principled” members of Parliament.

He added: “When someone as Labour to the core as Alice Mahon is forced to leave the Labour Party, the Labour leadership must appreciate the political catastrophe that is emerging.

“We need the Prime Minister to immediately launch an inquiry into the operation of the party with the aim of restoring democracy.”
