The above quotation comes from the embattled Labour Member of Parliament for Oldham East & Saddleworth in an email as quoted by Saddleworth News.

A quick question for Mr Woolas. If it is not okay for MPAC to support the Liberal Democrat candidate, why is it okay for the Trade Unions to support the Labour one?

Is this a case where a Labour politician is calling for the Trade Union movement not to support candidates in the general election. This would certainly help in making elections fairer for all. But, I don’t think it is a very liberal minded approach.
