McDonnell Mocks Labour Compliance Unit

John McDonnell has been caught making a sarky dig at Labour HQ’s compliance unit in comments which have not gone down well with Labour moderates. The Shadow Chancellor’s appearance at the hard-left Labour Representation Committee Special AGM on Saturday clashed with Labour’s Alternative Models of Ownership conference (organised by Southside). McDonnell ended his speech by joking:

“Thanks Comrades, I’m sorry about this clash… I don’t want the compliance unit expelling me just for not turning up at a conference. “

A Labour source told Guido:

“This is a dig at the staff which isn’t a very socialist thing to do, but it also belittles the reasons why people have been expelled which is often either for outright antisemitism or harassment of women, and given the #MeToo movement, in reality these comments couldn’t be further from a joke.”

Just broacialist banter…

Quote of the Day

John McDonnell tells the Gallery/Lobby lunch what the priest told him to do…

‘He persuaded me to do this. He said you need to soften your image. So do Mumsnet and do this…. I’m trying to soften my image.’
