Liverpool Labour councillor has resigned from the party in protest at Ed Miliband’s support for The Sun newspaper.
Cllr Martin Cummins, who represents Croxteth, told the Liverpool Echo that the Labour leader's picture holding up The Sun newspaper had “rocked me to my core”
His resignation letter said:
We are the the party of truth, justice and equality and we must stop compromising on our moral foundation just to win votes.
It is therefore with sadness and sincere regret that I am resigning from the Labour Party.
I pray that my brothers and sisters within our Labour family will understand my decision.
