Staff writer

Are the media to blame for the Labour defeat and when can the party expect a new leader? Theo Usherwood on LBC explains.

This is after John McDonnell blamed the media's supposed agenda against Jeremy Corbyn for Labour's election defeat.

Speaking to the BBC, McDonnell said: "Every day. Every attack, every smear was going on.

"It wasn't just Jeremy – they did the same to Ed Miliband, they did the same to Neil Kinnock.

"I think it's anyone who challenges the establishment. Why? Because the establishment own the media in this country."
