Members of Jared O’Mara’s Constituency Labour Party in Sheffield Hallam are demanding answers from the never-ending ‘investigation’ into his homophobic and misogynistic posts – with some calling for him to be deselected. Labour launched their probe into O’Mara four months ago, then paused it while he was off sick. Labour members in Sheffield Hallam are livid about the lack of progress, complaining on their private Facebook group that they have been kept out of the loop. They now want the party to report back immediately.
