Labour has expelled Alistair Campbell from the party after he revealed he had voted for the Liberal Democrats in the EU elections.

Alistair Campbell, formerly Tony Blair’s spin doctor, took to twitter to confirm that he had indeed been expelled from the party.

Campbell revealed on Sunday in an interview with BBC’s election night that he had voted for the Pro-Remain Liberal Democrats, amid disagreements with Labour’s position on Brexit.

Commenting on the decision, a Labour spokesperson said that supporting another party was “incompatible with membership”.

In a series of tweets, Campbell confirmed the news, he tweeted:

Alistair Campbell was famously former Labour Prime Minister Tony Blair’s chief press secretary.

He is also credited with having coined the term ‘New Labour’, a term which came to define the revitalisation of the party under Tony Blair’s leadership.
