Momentum, the political organisation within the Labour Party which backed the Jeremy Corbyn leadership, has denied allegations from Ben Bradshaw, the Labour MP for Exeter, that they were involved in intimidation.
The group posted on Twitter a message to Bradshaw saying:
“Your comments on BBC not just factually incorrect but a divisive & vile smear. We will be seeking legal advice”.
Bradshaw had earlier in an interview with the BBC:
“I’m afraid that these ritual condemnations from Jeremy Corbyn are just not enough. We need action. He always condemns, he always says it shouldn’t happen, he never actually does anything. He could call off these Momentum thugs now. The people around him control them. He should call them off, take them off now and expel these people if they’re members of the party”.
