One Third of Labour MPs Want Chris Williamson Expelled from the PLP, Here’s the List of MPs Who Don’t

According to the Jewish Chronicle “Labour MPs who did not sign letter to remove Williamson whip have nowhere to hide”. Send updates here.

UPDATE: Labour press office is briefing that Williamson’s “whip is not restored as the decision is still pending”. Meanwhile Labour MPs have demanded the whip be removed. Most Labour MPs are still keeping quiet until they know what the correct line is…

UPDATE II: It seems Keith Vaz, who was on the panel that voted to re-admit Chris Williamson, now says his decision should be reviewed. Slippery as hell. He thought Corbyn wanted him back, now realises it was a bit too problematic, so reverse ferrets.
