A former MP for Birmingham’s Hall Green constituency who became embroiled in the city’s ongoing equality lessons row has been banned by Labour’s National Executive Committee from standing for the party in the general election.
Roger Godsiff is one of three former MPs banned by Labour, the other two being Chris Williamson and Stephen Hepburn.
Mr Williamson had been suspended in an anti-Semitism row; Mr Hepburn after being investigated over a sexual harassment claim, which he denied.
Mr Godsiff was facing reselection in Hall Green after he took the side of parents and activists who were protesting outside Anderton Park - a primary school located in his constituency - against the teaching of lessons about LGBT relationships.
Labour had formally reprimanded him back in June after he was seen in a video agreeing with the protesters.
In the video, in which he is seen with protest organiser Shakeel Afsar, Mr Godsiff said: “I think you have a just cause and I regret the fact that it hasn't been reciprocated by the head teacher.”
He continued: “I will continue to try and fight your corner because you're right.
“Nothing more, nothing less. You're right.”
