Jeremy Corbyn’s Team Accused Of Bullying After List Of ‘Abusive’ MPs Issued


Even Corbyn’s deputy Tom Watson was included on the list for calling Momentum, the pro-Corbyn campaign group, a “rabble”.

The other MPs listed were Ian Austin, Neil Coyle, Ben Bradshaw, Frank Field, Anna Turley, Jamie Reed, Karl Turner, Stephen Kinnock and Tom Blenkinsop.

The New Statesman is reporting that the list was issued by a junior member of staff and not intended for any official use.

Corbyn and challenger Owen Smith are about to clash in the final hustings of the leadership election, which concludes on September 24.

A spokesman for the Corbyn campaign said: “Owen must explicitly condemn those who have threatened to split the party and tear it apart, as well as condemn the abuse instigated by his high-profile supporters.

“He must also make concrete commitments to doing his bit to foster party unity.”
