Catherine McKinnell Quits Shadow Cabinet over Corbyn’s “negative path”


Catherine McKinnell, the Shadow Attorney General, has resigned from the Labour Shadow Cabinet, days after a call for unity from senior figures.

McKinnell wrote to Jeremy Corbyn, the Leader of the Labour Party, saying:

“As events have unfolded over recent weeks, my concerns about the direction and internal conflict within the Labour Party have only grown, and I fear this is taking us down an increasingly negative path”.

McKinnell will be replaced by Karl Turner, the MP for Kingston-upon-Hull East.
