“As a government-in-waiting, any breach of collective responsibility is taken extremely seriously and for these reasons Sam Tarry has been removed from the front bench.”

Labour announces the sacking of its shadow transport minister, who defied Kier Starmer to join striking rail workers on a picket line this morning

Apparantly, more to do with talking to the press without permission than being on a picket line.
Possibly for open defiance of Starmer's orders that nobody from the shadow cabinet should go on the picket line. Imagine the field-day the Torty press would have if Starmer did nothing about it......
Just because I'm paranoid, it doesn't mean they're not out to get me

I think that is the likely reason, although it is not being given as the reason. The official reason is “been fired for making unauthorised media appearances.”
