A Labour MP has condemned the founder of the influential pro-Jeremy Corbyn campaign group for backing a Tory election candidate trying to oust him.
Clive Efford, MP for Eltham in South London, said he “won’t be taking any lectures on loyalty” after Momentum’s James Schneider admitted supporting the Conservatives ten years’ ago.
Momentum has been a key supporter of Corbyn and his left-wing policies, and Schneider has made several high-profile media appearances in support of the troubled Labour leader.
Schneider, who has admitted he voted Green in the last election, made several comments on the grassroots Conservative Home website, including one appearing to back Efford’s Tory opponent.
