Labour activist threatened with expulsion over homophobia named as one of their top activists

The Labour Party activist threatened with expulsion from his party for making homophobic comments about one of his Lib Dem rivals and eventually reported to the police over his offensive remarks has made number 9 on Labour North West's leaderboard for making political capital.

This slightly juvenile leaderboard gives points to Labour activists and politicians whenever they make political capital out of something. Ed Miliband is of course at the top of the list which says a lot about the political prowess of Labour politicians but it was surprising to find Stephen Poulson on the list at all with his behaviour over the last couple of years, let alone having his prehistoric attitudes glorified by putting him on a top 10 list of political activists.
