Young Labour Leader Quits After Admitting Assault on His Girlfriend.



LABOUR London youth Leader Dan Young has been forced to step down after accepting a police caution over an assault on his girlfriend, TBG can reveal.

The leading figure in the Labour Party’s youth wing was arrested for assaulting his girlfriend in an apparent late night row on a high street, say reports.

Young, who is also a councillor in Barking and Dagenham, was initially suspended from his role in Young Labour after being quizzed by police in east London.

Sources have disclosed that six activists sensationally quit London Young Labour’s committee after Young was reinstated as Chairman just days later.

It's also understood that Young Labour members were dramatically warned by certain party figures not to mention the incident online.

In an email to the committee, London Regional Director Alan Olive wrote - "I am aware that there may be messages posted on social media regarding Dan Young’s recent suspension. I need to remind everyone that posting comments about internal discipline matters is itself a matter that could lead the author(s) becoming subject to a separate discipline investigation.

"This could also apply to members who re-distribute, retweet or otherwise widen the original circulation."


Dan Young used to work for the MP for Rainham and Dagenham John Cruddas and they were pictured together in May this year, all consistent with the now ex-chairman carrying out his roles, past & present, at the heart of the Labour party.

Cuddas told reporters - "He worked for me years ago and the incident has been brought to the attention of the national party.

"I don't know the details and it would be wrong for me to comment further when it's in the hands of the national party."
