Live Not by Lies

BY CAPEL LOFFT My Letter of Resignation from the Labour Party: Dear Membership Services and CLP Secretary, I am writing to resign my membership of the Labour Party. I have no illusions that the Labour Party centrally will be interested in why, but for my own sanity I want to put into writing the reasons why.
