This photo shows British MP John Woodcock, doing a speech at a meeting of the British Tony Blair fan cub which calls itself ‘Progress’. Woodcock used to be its chairman.
After his support for the warmongering regime in Turkey, his links to the warmongering absolute monarchy in Saudi Arabia, and his siding with Conservative Home Secretary Amber Rudd just before she was forced to resign for racism in the Windrush scandal … now this about British MP John Woodcock, supporter of the Blairite far-right wing of the Labour party. A bit similar to another Blairite; now no longer a Labour MP.

Investigation: Woodcock MP faces NEC probe in sexual harassment case
JOHN WOODCOCK MP is to be investigated over allegations that he sent inappropriate messages to his former female aide.
Last November at a meeting of Labour’s national executive committee (NEC), it was deemed the woman’s complaint was substantial enough to be referred to the party’s constitutional committee.
In a statement posted on Twitter, Mr Woodcock said: “I was made aware in December last year that a complaint made against me was being referred to Labour’s national constitutional committee as a potential breach of the party’s policy on sexual harassment.
A Labour spokesman said: “The party takes all complaints of harassment very seriously.”
Since Mr Woodcock was elected MP of the Cumbrian industrial town in 2010, he has emerged as one of Jeremy Corbyn’s bitterest enemies, slamming the Labour leader as a security risk and stating that he would not support him to be prime minister even after an election win.
Earlier this month, the Barrow and Furness CLP wrote to the Labour NEC over Mr Woodcock’s repeated attacks on Mr Corbyn’s leadership in light of issues relating to Russia, anti-semitism and the sacking of shadow Northern Ireland secretary Owen Smith from the front bench.
In the letter, constituency secretary John Clark wrote: “I have been asked by the Barrow and Furness executive committee to let you know that we have written to the Labour Party secretary and the NEC for advice concerning John Woodcock’s recent public comments.”
A real woodcock, like in this video, is so preferable to that politician Woodcock.
This is a video of a real woodcock, dancing in a garden in Sweden.
One should hope that Barrow and Furness voters will get a real Labour MP soon.
