Responding to claims from a senior labour figure, known as ‘Leaker No. 1’, a source has claimed that there is no truth to one persistently circulating rumour about a secret team behind Gordon-Nesbitt.
Speaking to the weekend furlough, ‘Leaker No. 1’ had claimed that Rebecca Gordon-Nesbitt had been “plucked from obscurity” as part of a left-wing ‘Manchurian Style’ plot by a quartet of local leftist figures. The group which was said to have included Jackie Walker a controversial figure, who remains suspended from the Labour Party over claims of anti-Semitism. The group was also said to have included Graham Bash, who is known for his links to Shadow Chancellor, John McDonnell.
In a bizarre turn of events, one usually reliable source told this site that the Group referred to themselves by “Animal Farm inspired pseudonyms.” It has not been possible to confirm this speculation.

- ‘COMRADE BLUEBELL’ – Cxxxxxxxx xxxxxx Thanet disability rights activist who has angrily denied previous allegations of anti-semitism on news site run by ‘Comrade Pincher’
Responding to the general claims, a ‘Manchurian Quartet’ member described them as ‘categorically untrue’. He denied that so-called ‘Comrade Squealer’, Jackie Walker, ever participated in any campaign meetings but declined to comment on whether he had participated.
WHAT IS ‘THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE?
‘The Manchurian Candidate’ was a 1959 political thriller by author, Richard Condon. It has twice been adapted into screenplays. The plot focusses on the son of a prominent politician who is brainwashed as part of a communist plot to take over the United States. He is then ‘run’ unwittingly as a candidate for President as a puppet of his communist masters.
