Walton Labour chairman resigns over Dan Carden selection 'stitch-up'

The chairman of the Walton Constituency Labour Party, Frank Prendergast, has resigned, accusing party bosses of "a stitch-up" over the selection of trade union official Dan Carden to fight the seat at the general election. 

The 30-year-old, who grew up in Liverpool, was chosen on Tuesday ahead of city mayor Joe Anderson and North West England MEP Theresa Griffin. 

Local party members had asked for a local candidate. 

Mr Carden, who was born in Liverpool and joined Labour while at school, works for the Unite union, which had a representative on the three-person selection panel.

Mr Prendergast, who serves as a councillor in Liverpool and is a former council leader and lord mayor, says that puts the whole process into question.

He said:

As an outsider looking on, it was just unbelievably poor organisation.

It looks and smells like a stitch-up and I don't want any part.
