Labour’s press office Twitter account publicly rebukes Daily Mail for false claim that Corbyn tried to intervene in suspension of MP Chris Williamson
The Daily Mail has tried to capitalise on the Labour Party’s suspension of Derby North MP Chris Williamson with a blaring front page claiming that Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn had tried to block the suspension.
The article, as well as being a smear, betrays a complete lack of knowledge of how Labour’s disciplinary processes function – and the official @LabourPress account was quick to point out that the rag’s claim was wholesale fake news:
Not only that, but Labour had told the Mail that the story was false, yet the smear went ahead anyway.
‘Mainstream’ fake news yet again. How desperate the Establishment is to attack the Labour leader.
