Labour MP Jeremy Corbyn has reportedly been asking where the Leader of the Opposition is, and why he isn’t doing more to oppose Government policy. A number of Westminster journalists claim that they have been approached by the left-wing MP, who keeps questioning them on why the Labour leader isn’t doing more to oppose the Government, and even who he actually is.
One Westminster source, speaking anonymously, told us that Corbyn was ‘absolutely livid’ following a recent vote in the Commons when the Labour leader whipped him MPs into supporting the Government’s position on Brexit. The source told us that Corbyn ‘went absolutely ballistic’, and even suggested that perhaps the Labour leader should ‘piss off and join the Tories’ if he’s not prepared to oppose them.
Corbyn has also been briefing journalists that following his ‘recent dire performances’ the Labour leader should ‘consider his position’ or face a leadership challenge.
When contacted by The Spark about the possible leadership challenge the Labour leader’s office refused to comment. However off the record a senior source said that the whole office agreed with Corbyn that the present Labour leader is ‘completely bloody useless’.
