UL's Commandant Martin Meyer's cameo role in 'The Wall'The tiny (193 members) group that purports to be the 'United left' or even more unbelievably 'Broad Left' in the union are now down to 192 members after banning one more. 192 members out of a union of 1.5 million!
Today Mark of Unite Central branch was removed after daring to write:
"Make sure you don’t have any regrets after the Election.Machine. There must be a limit to how many members the tiny group can ban before it disappears up its own arse...
Make sure that you don't feel that you have been used and spat out by another highly paid Union Officer to get another pay rise.
Make sure that you don’t have that empty feeling that nothing has been gained by this election.
Make sure that you are not bullied by others.
Make sure you vote for Jerry Hicks"
Previously banned and airbrushed was the editor of dearunite.com. We attach one of those airbrushed out posts here, exposing an old betrayal by the
highly paid management of the union - the scandal of financial support for the Blairite John Cruddas for deputy leader of the Labour Party. If you are a member of the 'United Left' mailing list you won't find that in the archives, though you will find responses to it that quote it in full! The airbrushing is a obviously little under developed at present.
Many on the 'United Left list are actually paid employees of the union, some even having the front to use their '@unitetheunion.org' email addresses (see pic at left). Many also have multiple names like 'Sean' AKA 'Seany' AKA 'John McGovern', so even the tiny 192 figure is an over estimate. Roll on the days when we can have a large, democratic, un-paranoid and non-bullying left group in our union - vote for Jerry Hicks the only non management candidate. For members who haven't received a ballot paper (or even those who have dumped or mislaid it) ring free:
0800 783 3856 (0818 333 155 from the Republic of Ireland) to get another.
Sean AKA Seany AKA John McGovern, actually a manager of the 'United Left' group, was moved to write a fond goodbye to Mark:
"You are the weakest link - goodbye, gobshite!
