Paul Kenny, the leader of the GMB Union, says that Labour MPs who don’t back Corbyn should quit party

Sir Paul Kenny, the leader of the GMB Union, has controversially suggested that those not loyal to Jeremy Corbyn should leave the Labour Party.

Speaking at the Trades Union Congress Kenny said that those not loyal should:

“Go off into the oblivion like previous splitters from the Labour party have done”.

The previous day Kenny had suggested that those with alternative views would be tolerated saying:

“There will be plenty of room for people with alternative views and arguments in the Labour Party but at the end of the day the sniping has to stop. Those who cannot accept the democratically elected leader of the party should “ave it on their toes” now”.

Jeremy Corbyn is yet to comment on Kenny’s statement.
