Rosie Winterton, Labour’s Chief Whip, has reportedly complained to Jeremy Corbyn, the Leader of the Opposition, about a document from his office which listed MPs by how loyal they were to the leader.

Winterton was rated as “hostile” by the internal list which she said was “divisive” and “unacceptable” according to the Guardian article. It also mentions senior party sources who said that the list was drawn up by Corbyn’s team, although the Leader of the Opposition has denied this.

The list was used by David Cameron, the Prime Minister, at Prime Minister’s Question Time, at a time when the Leader of the Opposition was expected to be on the attack over the budget u-turn and the resignation of Iain Duncan Smith, the former Work and Pensions Secretary.
