Labour MPs threatened with violence for opposing Jeremy Corbyn

Thuggery, violence and nastiness aren’t far away on the left of politics. Jeremy Corbyn’s supporters have the sort of zeal that the Faith Militant have in Game of Thrones…and are as violent.

Several Labour MPs have been forced to call the police over threats made by activists over the coup against Jeremy Corbyn.

Lewisham MP Vicky Foxcroft, who as a whip has not yet taken sides in the unprecedented political revolt, reported an abusive call to her staff after a man hung up and said he was coming to the office.

The alleged incident involved a man calling the office and insisting: ‘If she doesn’t support Corbyn I will come down to the office and kick the f*** out of you.’

The Daily Telegraph reported police rushed to the office in Lewisham and told staff to roll down the shutters.

The paper said a string of other Labour MPs had received threats.

It said Lucy Powell, the former shadow education secretary, received a message telling her to kill herself after she quit the shadow cabinet. 

Copeland MP Jamie Reed today wrote to Labour leader Mr Corbyn and blamed him directly for the incidents.

Mr Reed said: ‘In the short time you have been Leader, along with the shadow Chancellor, you have sought to inject an unprecedented poison into our party.

‘You have actively worked to divide Labour MPs from the Labour Party membership…you have repeatedly incited you supporters on social media to confront Labour MPs; without doubt you are not fit to lead our great party.’   

Repeating his demands for Mr Corbyn to quit immediately, Mr Reed said: ‘The Labour Party will be fortunate to survive much more of your leadership and the best interests of the party will not be served at any election in which you remain in post.’

In a tweet this morning, Mr Corbyn said: ‘I completely condemn abuse of MPs of any kind. No abuse is carried out in my name. There is no place for this in society or in our politics.’

Ms Foxcroft told The Telegraph: ‘As an MP, your skin gets pretty thick, pretty quickly.

‘But when John McDonnell calls on Momentum activists to campaign against their MP’s, it doesn’t take that much for people to feel like they should take things into their own hands.

‘My staff work hard to provide support for hundreds of my constituents. They don’t need this level of abuse and threatening behaviour.

‘Understandably, it has been quite a worrying time for them in recent weeks. I sincerely hope this is the last of the aggression they will have to receive.’

Mr Corbyn was told by Ian Murray, Labour’s only Scottish MP, at Monday night’s meeting of MPs that his actions were encouraging aggressive protests at MPs.

The Labour left the meeting to address an angry rally in Parliament Square attended by some people wearing T-Shirts branded with a slogan about ‘eradicating right wing Blairite vermin’.

It’s ugly stuff but, by and large, socialists are ugly, jealous, little people.

It is unbelievable that Labour have turned on Tony Blair, the most successful Labour PM since the war. But such is their zealotry. I can’t wait until they start carving symbols on their foreheads.
