FORMER Harlow MP Stan Newens was part of the audience that gathered to see suspended Labour MP Chris Williamson speak on Friday night.
The audience met at The Essex Skipper pub in The Stow as Mr Williamson presented a talk called “Planting the Magic Money Tree (MMT)”.
Mr Williamson is suspended from the Labour Party whilst they investigate allegations of antisemitism.
Harlow Labour distanced themselves from the meeting. No councillors attended including the four who are members of Momentum.
The Harlow Labour candidate for Church Langley in last month’s local elections, Colin Monehan did attend.
Afterwards, Mr Williamson went onto Twitter to thank the organisers. He said: “Fantastic meeting in Harlow last night where I spoke about MMT. Genuine privilege to see Labour legend & former MP/MEP, Stan Newens in attendance. Great discussion too.
Big thank you to Brett Hawksbee for organising the meeting
