Statement, LAW steering committee
The steering committee of Labour Against the Witchhunt deplores some of the tweets that have been issued in our name. The LAW Twitter account had been used outside of our control. We have only just been informed of the content of some of the tweets and wish to distance LAW from them in the strongest possible terms.
We have now been able to access and delete that Twitter account and set up a new one, with the handle @LAW_witchhunt.
The person responsible for the tweets has offered his resignation, which the steering committee has accepted.
