A Labour MP has claimed the left-leaning Momentum activist group is using the threat of de-selection to make sure MPs agree with Jeremy Corbyn.
Chris Leslie, member for Nottingham East, was reacting to comments from the group's chairman that it would not campaign to de-select moderate Labour MPs.
Speaking to The Independent, Jon Lansman also rejected reports that the group's supporters had drawn up a de-selection hit-list of 50 centrists.
"The Momentum leadership are constantly obsessing about process," Mr Leslie said.
"It is an attempt to instill fear into every single member of the Parliamentary Labour Party, whether they are on the frontbench or the backbench, that the threat to their job is always there if they dare disagree".
