Corbyn’s position wins through in spite of left absences
In the last few moments Jeremy Corbyn’s victory at a meeting of Labour’s NEC (National Executive Committee) has been confirmed. Corbyn’s position on Brexit for the party’s European Parliament manifesto won easily, in spite of the unavoidable absence of a number of left NEC members.
The result is a humiliating defeat for deputy leader Tom Watson, who had tried to orchestrate pressure for a switch to support for another public vote.
It’s time for every MP, MEP and candidate to get on-message and campaign hard for the party’s position.
And it’s time for Watson to go.
