Tom Watson Puts Down Rumours of Jeremy Corbyn Relaunch

Tom Watson, the deputy leader of the Labour Party, has denied rumours that there were plans to relaunch the leadership of Jeremy Corbyn. The Guardian newspaper had reported earlier in the day that the senior Labour strategists intended to relaunch Corbyn to “ride the anti-establishment wave”.

Speaking on the BBC, Watson was asked about the relaunch of the Labour leader and he replied:

“That’s news to me if he’s being re-launched, it seems that he’s on a high trajectory in his own right does our Jeremy, so let’s see what the new year brings shall we?”.
