Jeremy Corbyn Rubbishes Labour Deputy Tom Watson’s Trotskyite Entryism Claims As ‘Nonsense’

“I just ask Tom to do the maths – 300,000 people have joined the Labour Party.

“At no stage in anyone’s most vivid imagination are there 300,000 sectarian extremists at large in the country who have suddenly descended on the Labour Party.

“Sorry Tom, it is nonsense – and I think he knows it’s nonsense. Let’s get on with campaigning Tom. Thanks.”

The leader also used his interview to back new members who used to support other parties.

“I want people to join for good motives,” he said. “But if they have changed their political views or developed their political views, then surely that is a good thing.”

Watson hit back at the comments, insisting his evidence was “incontrovertible”.
