Derek Hatton,born in 1948, was a politician in the United Kingdom

He was a member of the Labour Party and deputy leader of Liverpool City Council in the 1980s. He was expelled in 1986 for belonging to the Militant Tendency, an entryist faction in the Labour Party promoting Trotskyism. The National Executive Committee of the party voted to expel him by 12 votes to 6, the move being a policy aim of Neil Kinnock.

Since then he has pursued a career in the media, presenting a show on Talk Sport, and appearing on such programs as Have I Got News For You.
