John McDonnell Accuses Labour Of ‘Rigging’ Leadership Election Against Jeremy Corbyn

John McDonnell has sensationally accused the Labour Party of trying to rig the leadership election against Jeremy Corbyn.

On Thursday evening the shadow chancellor attacked officials in his own party after Ronnie Draper, general secretary of the bakers’ union BFAWU, was suspended from the party and told he cannot vote in the leadership election.

McDonnell said the decision was “shocking, and appears to be part of a clear pattern of double standards”.

“While Ronnie, a supporter of Jeremy Corbyn, has been denied his say in Labour’s election, no action is being taken over the Labour peer, Lord Sainsbury, who has given more than £2m to support the Liberal Democrats,” he said.
