Is legal action the only option for Ian Gibson?

Ian Gibson, the backbencher barred from standing over his expenses claims, joins three other Labour MP’s not allowed to stand at the next general election. BBC News reports;

“MPs Margaret Moran, Elliot Morley and David Chaytor – who already said they would not stand – were also banned.

But [unlike Gibson] they have not been expelled from the party or had the whip removed.”

Iain Dale among others have agreed that only legal action will come close to overule the decision made by disciplinary panel set up by Labour’s ruling body.

This will be just great won’t it.
