Sheffield Hallam MP Jared O’Mara said the girl band should sack member Sarah Harding while the rest “come have an orgy with me”.
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn brands Norwich South MP Clive Lewis' comments, in which he told a man to: "get on your knees b**ch", as "completely unacceptable.
In a survey asking who would make the best Prime Minister out of Jeremy Corbyn and Theresa May, the two leaders somehow managed to come joint third. The latest YouGov survey on voting intentions found that 33% of the public think Mrs May would be the best Prime Minister, another 33% back Mr Corbyn for the role, and 35% picked neither (figures rounded to the nearest whole number).
Jeremy Corbyn’s popularity within the party has never been higher and the excitement at the conference has not gone unnoticed.
Laura Kuenssberg has reportedly been targeted by a left-wing hate mob who have sent her a series of threats because they believe she is biased against Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn is under fresh pressure to commit Labour to keeping the UK in the EU single market after Brexit. Labour meets in Brighton for its annual conference this week.
Jeremy Corbyn has said he is “open” to the United Kingdom remaining in the single market permanently after Brexit. Jeremy Corbyn has seemingly contradicted himself in a matter of minutes over his position on the single market and Brexit. Speaking ahead of a key vote on the second reading of the Government’s EU (Withdrawal) Bill in the House of Commons, the Labour leader appeared to suggest he supported membership of the single market (which would only be possible with continued membership of the EU) whilst going on to assert he wanted to respect the result of the referendum.
Britain could remain in the EU single market permanently Labour’s deputy leader has claimed. Tom Watson’s comments came even though party leader Jeremy Corbyn says Britain must leave it following the Brexit vote last year. Watson was speaking to BBC Newsnight.
Theresa May has insisted she will lead the Tories into the next election but Conservative MPs believe Boris Johnson will be the man to eventually take over. The under-fire Foreign Secretary is the man that one third of Tories believe will take over the role as party leader, according to polling company Populus. One fifth think that Brexit Secretary David Davis will lead the party next – whether it is is display as leader or as Prime mInister if Mrs May does quit before another election.
A Labour MP has claimed she shared a sick message telling Rotherham sex abuse victims to ‘shut up for sake of diversity’ by accident. Naz Shah, a key ally of leader Jeremy Corbyn, retweeted and liked a post on the Twitter page by a parody account of left-wing writer Owen Jones. The post read: “Those abused girls in Rotherham and elsewhere just need to shut their mouths.
Labour’s chasm over free movement of people is so vast it is a wonder that either side can even see the other. The first, from former shadow cabinet minister Caroline Flint, was part of a speech last month urging the party to commit to a full-blooded Brexit, outside the single market, customs union, and the realm of free movement of people. The second is from an open letter calling for Jeremy Corbyn to commit to continued free movement of EU citizens post-Brexit, signed by Labour MPs Clive Lewis, David Lammy and Geraint Davies.
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn is facing renewed criticism over his stance on the unrest in Venezuela, after he denounced violence by "all sides" in his first public comments on the subject but stopped short of condemning the country's embattled socialist President Nicolas Maduro.
After an election campaign that saw an unusual (but not unprecedented) amount of movement in the polls, things have settled down somewhat. Labour has maintained a narrow lead since the election, averaging 42-45%, with the Conservatives back on 40-41%. By the next election the Tories will have a new leader and the Article 50 Brexit negotiating deadline will probably have passed.
Charlie Mullins, who runs Pimlico Plumbing, told Yahoo News UK that he believes the Labour leader is “destroying the country” - and wouldn’t let him work at his company.
The millionaire boss of a plumbing company caused red-faces all round when he called Jeremy Corbyn a “tw*t” live on radio. Remain supporter Charlie Mullins, the boss of Pimlico Plumbers, appeared on BBC Radio 4’s World At One to talk about employment laws. When the subject moved on to Brexit, Mr Mullins was asked about whether the UK should stay in the single market – something opposed by the Labour leader.
Labour may yet change its stance on Brexit if the British public decide they don’t want to leave the EU after all, according to the party’s election campaign chief. Andrew Gwynne, a key advisor to Jeremy Corbyn, suggested that Labour could be “flexible” over Brexit, according to the Daily Mirror.
What did @theresa_may say to make @jeremycorbyn laugh as they sat together during the King of Spain’s visit to Parliament? Theresa May is having a bit of a tough time but one person she made happy was the last person you’d expect. The Prime Minister was sitting down next to Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn as the pair waited to hear the King of Spain’s speech at Parliament.
Labour have taken an eight points lead in the latest opinion poll published by YouGov. It is the first survey the polling company has taken since last month’s General Election. The poll puts Labour at 46 per cent and the Conservatives 38 per cent.
In an alternate universe, Ed Miliband is Prime Minister and Jeremy Corbyn is nothing more than a veteran backbencher. The former Labour leader was supposed to topple David Cameron in the 2015 General Election and become the new PM, according to the polls.
One of the reasons Labour performed strongly in the general election was the surge in support in Remain areas and among the young, so it’s ironic that this has allowed Jeremy Corbyn to consolidate his control of the party and enforce hard Brexit. Shadow Brexit secretary Keir Starmer, who for many months was gradually retreating on his demands for single market membership, has now effectively accepted defeat and adopted the hard Brexit position of Jeremy Corbyn. By the time Corbyn secured his surprisingly strong result, the game was up.
The sight of thousands of men in a tent chanting for the execution of a female politician they disagree with was genuinely disturbing. The crowd at Glastonbury generally shares the same values as me. Presentation has always mattered in politics, from as far back as the records go.
Jeremy Corbyn has reportedly claimed he will be Prime Minister before the year ends. The Labour leader sat down with Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis before the two went on the Pyramid Stage together to rapturous applause. During the Q&A between Mr Corbyn and Mr Eavis, the pair apparently discussed how Labour would scrap the Trident nuclear deterrent if they win a snap election.
