A “CULTURE of impunity” has allowed immoral and illegal practices to go unchallenged in police forces, John McDonnnell said yesterday.

Speaking at the Blacklisting, Bullying and Blowing the Whistle conference, the shadow chancellor said Labour would take forward activists’ proposals to change the laws on blacklisting and undercover policing.

Bemoaning the slowness of the fight against the construction blacklist and police surveillance, he said the biggest obstacle was “the belief we live in liberal democracy where these things don’t happen.”

He said the government was refusing to allow a public inquiry into the jailing of the Shrewsbury pickets because it would reveal that the Establishment had conspired to frame the striking builders.
