We are currently filming a four part documentary on the trade union complicity in the blacklisting.

BENT UNION OFFICIALS - MINISERIES

I start shooting the first of a four part miniseries on the blacklisting in September, or quite possibly earlier as lockdown rules are eased.

Although there will be an overview of the basics, the films are going to cover my long standing efforts to expose the trade union complicity in and cover up of the blacklisting.

They will also expose those from within the Labour Party and trade unions that have sustained this over the years and more so, those who created and circulated the campaign of lies about me being a major blacklister at Skanska, including the lawyers.

Contributions to alanwainwright1963@gmail.com if you have any. If not, we have plenty to go on with.

LABOUR MANIFESTO - BLACKLISTING PUBLIC INQUIRY

This is simply not going to happen, as it relies on a Labour Party majority Government, which is also not going to happen. The Tories are around 10-14% ahead in the polls, and although the polls predicted a similar outcome in 2017, the mystery surrounding Labour’s surprise gains back then may not be so inexplicable.

I am the whistle-blower who helped expose the construction industry blacklisting, which is best summed up in this Guardian article from 2009.

My campaign to expose blacklisting still continues and in 2016 I received a standing ovation from the GMB trade union congress at Bournemouth. This included Jeremy Corbyn who had been invited as the surprise special guest. 

A Facebook journalist called Ben Jenkins picked up on this and published an article with the video on his Facebook page, Nye Bevan News.

Assuming I was someone who shared his political beliefs (which I am not), Ben invited me to become an administrator on the page. I was intrigued and therefore agreed. 

Facebook Page Admins such as those for Nye Bevan News are given specific privileged access and are able to manage page settings, edit posts, create and delete posts, delete comments and much more. This provided a valuable insight into how such far left political views were being disseminated on Facebook at the time.

The small group of people behind this page had devised a quite clever system to spread their beliefs to millions on Facebook without the need for any funding. 

They had learned that there were a growing number (around 60 to 80) of similarly named Facebook pages and groups (E.g. Jeremy Corbyn Fans, Jeremy Corbyn For PM, etc) who all shared their very same far left political views. 

Ben and his team had therefore joined all these pages and groups (in both their own names and fake accounts) to share their Nye Bevan News articles. Sympathetic members of these groups would then share the posts with their friends and other groups, and so on.

One particular privilege of being a page admin on a Facebook page is that you get to see the 'Insights' of a page. These are the particular statistics relating to each post (or news article in this case). 

It soon became clear that I was not interested in contributing to this page and my admin privileges were removed, but what I did learn in the run up to the 2017 General Election was that this small group of Facebook journalists were reaching around 3.5 million people with their far left articles attacking the Tories and promoting Jeremy Corbyn.

3.5 Million - I could see the actual number of people they were reaching on Facebook back in 2017 with my very own eyes. 

And this was only one Facebook page. The other Facebook pages and groups were putting out their own very similar articles and adopting the very same sharing techniques.

Now that was in the grand old days when organic reach was free and all our posts went to all our friends. But the times have a changed and we are all now waking up to the fact that most of our friends or people in the Facebook groups we are members of rarely see our posts. 

The free Facebook post sharing ship has sailed, as Facebook now sells the information highway to those who will pay the most.

So whatever free help Labour received behind the scenes on Facebook in 2017 is not going to be able to help them this coming December. That is unless all these groups get some serious funding for the sponsored adverts now required to get your message out there.

BENT UNION OFFICIALS - UNITE'S SUPPOSED INDEPENDENT INQUIRY

It is now clear who is conducting the supposed independent inquiry into the trade union involvement in the blacklisting. 

Richard Arthur at Unite's solicitors, Thompsons.

Mr Arthur invited me to a meeting sometime after 11 November 2019. I agreed to attend and asked for details on the scope of the inquiry in order for me to make the necessary preparations.

I set out a number of key areas and asked if these were covered in the scope of the inquiry.

Richard Arthur

"The scope of the investigation is as set out in my email"

"By way of clarification, it extends to any evidence concerning the alleged involvement of any past of present union officers or officials in the operation of blacklists in the construction industry. It also extends to any evidence of any suppression of information relating to such blacklists by union officers, past or present."

Me

Thank you for your response, but I'm none the wiser.

Could you confirm that all the issues raised in my email below therefore fall within the scope of the inquiry?

Richard Arthur

I have explained the scope of the investigation.

I will listen to whatever you want to tell me, and any evidence you present which may be relevant to the scope of the investigation will be compiled and sent to the independent Queen's Counsel.

Me  

I'm sorry but you haven't explained the scope of the investigation at all. You have provided the following vague sentence.

"We are instructed by Unite the Union to gather together any evidence that may suggest that there has been involvement by union officers or officials in the operation of blacklists in the construction industry."

I have asked you again to clarify if the points raised in my subsequent email are covered in the scope of the investigation to which you have responded:

"I will listen to whatever you want to tell me, and any evidence you present which may be relevant to the scope of the investigation will be compiled and sent to the independent Queen's Counsel."

So I will ask again. Do the specific points raised in my email below fall within the scope of the investigation? 

The full email conversation can be downloaded here and I await Mr Arthur's response.

Blacklisted workers were promised that this inquiry would be independent of the union, but that does not appear to be the case, with no clear scope provided and the union's own solicitors in the High Court blacklisting litigation filtering what evidence will be presented to the supposedly independent QC. The name of which appears to be a closely guarded secret. 

2018 Subject Access Requests

In March 2018 I made a subject access request to the trade unions and their lawyers involved in the CIVIG High Court blacklisting litigation. Thompsons have not provided one single item of data held.

CHRIS MATHESON MP (For CHESTER) & THE BLACKLISTING

Coming soon....

But for now, a Facebook message quote from (Unite Executive Council member, Joint Secretary of The Blacklist Support Group and friend of John McDonnell) Roy Bentham on the trade union complicity in the blacklisting.

"Matheson does need outing Alan"

"We need as much evidence as possible for that inquiry to have legs"
