Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour is in danger of becoming a “Friday night Marxist book club” rather than an electable Government-in-waiting, a BBC Question Time panelist has said.
Journalist Julia Hartley-Brewer said Britons would “never elect a Socialist Government” on Thursday’s edition of the programme, as Corbyn is expected to be re-elected Labour leader easily on Saturday.
She was speaking after Blairite Labour MP Liz Kendall was the target of an audience member who advocated the mandatory re-selection of MPs before they could defend their seats in a General Election, something Corbyn supporters could use to remove those critical of the Labour Party leader.
“What a depressing conversation, genuinely,” Hartley-Brewer said.
