Two days ago, Tory MP Ben Bradley – no stranger to controversy after furores over comments about ‘eugenics‘, ‘splatting chavs’ and smears against Labour for organising events for ‘BAME’ and LGBT members – tweeted a comment about Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn:
The allegation was so outrageous that even the S*n and Mail had avoided making it explicit in their coverage of claims by Czech ‘fantasist’ Jan Sarkocy.
Around the same time that Corbyn instructed lawyers to write to Mr Bradley about his tweet, it was deleted from his Twitter feed.
Now Labour sources have told the SKWAWKBOX that Corbyn is pressing Bradley to issue a public apology for the comment – and to make a ‘significant’ donation to charity. The full details of Corbyn’s demands are laid out in a solicitor’s letter to the Tory MP:
No details of any response are available so far.
