Moderate Labour MPs 'fear' de-selection

Calum McKenzie

BBC News

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

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".

Anna Soubry, the Conservative "remainer" MP for Broxtowe, who's been critical of the Brexit process so far, has praised the Prime Minister on the last-minute deal with the EU.

The deal moves Brexit talks to the next phase and has agreed no "hard border" with Ireland and protected rights of EU citizens in the UK and UK citizens in the EU, according to Theresa May.

No specific figure for the so-called divorce bill has been set in the document but Downing Street says it will be between £35bn and £39bn.

Local Labour MPs have been less supportive of the deal.

Nottingham East's Chris Leslie tweeted that Northern Ireland border issues had been "kicked into long grass".

Chris Leslie a 'sad, lonely, bitter man'

BBC Radio 5 live

Open letter urges MP to stop criticising Jeremy Corbyn

Kevin Stanley

Reporter, BBC Radio Nottingham

More than 400 members of the Labour Party have told the Nottingham East MP Chris Leslie to stop publicly criticising Jeremy Corbyn.

Grassroots supporters, local councillors and political activists are among those who've signed an open letter urging Mr Leslie to confine his personal views to discussions within the party.

It's after he told Radio 4 on Saturday that, despite the gains, Labour "can't pretend" it won the election...

Mr Leslie was re-elected in Nottingham East for the Labour Party with a increased majority of over 19,000.

Nottingham City Councillor Adele Williams is one of the signatories.

She said: "We got the biggest swing to Labour since Clement Attlee. Once Jeremy Corbyn had a fair hearing in the media throughout the election campagin, we were able to achieve that swing. If you look at the polls now we are on 45% and the Tories are on 39%.

"What we would like to see is a clear endorsement from Chris because he is a Labour MP and in fact the increase majority that we see in seats like Nottingham East is in very large part to do with inspiration that Jeremy Corbyn has offered."
