Peter Mandelson - Complaint to Labour NEC
This petition had 4,985 supporters
We, the undersigned Labour Party members and/or supporters, wish to submit a formal complaint to the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the Labour Party, via Iain McNicol regarding the conduct of former Minister, Peter Mandelson.
It has been quoted in the Mail on Sunday on 11th June 2017 that he said,
"Mainstream Labour MPs, who worry about the impact of the continuing Corbyn revolution on centrist voters, should be prepared to stand by the wounded PM, and likewise she should welcome their approach in the national interest."
Previously, it was widely reported on 11th February 2017 via the National Press that he said at an event held by the Jewish Chronicle,
"The problem with Jeremy is not that he is a sort of maniac – it’s not as though he is a nasty person. It’s that he literally has no idea in the 21st century how to conduct himself as a leader of a party putting itself forward in a democratic election to become the government of our country." and, “Why do you want to just walk away and pass the title deeds of this great party over to someone like Jeremy Corbyn? I don’t want to, I resent it, and I work every single day in some small way to bring forward the end of his tenure in office.
“Something, however small it may be – an email, a phone call or a meeting I convene – every day I try to do something to save the Labour party from his leadership.”
The signatories of this petition believe that the abovementioned quotes are a direct breach of Labour Party Rules, specifically those concerning "taking part in a course of action that brings the party into disrepute", and "supporting or endorsing a candidate or party standing against the Labour Party or one of its candidates".
"No member of the Party shall engage in conduct which in the opinion of the NEC is prejudicial or in any act which in the opinion of the NEC is grossly detrimental to the Party."
We therefore request that Labour's National Executive Committee accept this petition as a formal request to investigate Peter Mandelson for these breaches of Labour Party rules.
