McDonnell Defends Calling McVey “Stain on Humanity”

John McDonnell is asked by Peston if he wants to retract calling Esther McVey a “stain on humanity” and “joking” about her being lynched. He replies: “I was angry. Sometimes you need to express honest anger”. Esther is sitting just a few feet away!

UPDATE: Yvette Cooper orders McDonnell to apologise. He doesn’t.

UPDATE II: Esther responds: “This is a man who links violence with politics”

UPDATE III: McDonnell doubles down. Asked by Murnaghan if he thinks he was right to call her “a stain on humanity”, he replies: “Yes I do”.
