Labour MP Chris Bryant Reveals 25 MPs Sent Identical Death Threat

Bryant said the internet had fostered a climate of “anger and a bitterness”.

“I have never known the Labour Party be in such an unpleasant state `as it is at the moment, with members of the Labour Party attacking members of the Labour Party, day in, day out.”

Bryant added: “I think Jeremy has been very very slow to act on that. A lot of this is happening on Jeremy’s watch. You need a stronger leader if you are really going to be able to tackle that.”

Speaking at the launch of his “digital manifesto” today in east London, Corbyn said there should be “quite strict codes of conduct” for how people behave on line when it came to abuse.

“Many people use instant access to Twitter more or less like they’re continuing a pub conversation, and deeply regret the abuse that they sent to people at that time,” he said.

He added: “I absolutely will not allow any sort of it whatsoever anywhere around our campaign – we do chase it down, we do stop it.”
