Corbyn vote: Unite calls for openness and democracy

Reacting to the vote of the Parliamentary Labour Party’s confidence in the leadership of Jeremy Corbyn, Unite general secretary Len McCluskey said, “The extraordinary behaviour of Labour MPs has achieved nothing beyond diverting attention from a Tory government in crisis.


“If anyone wants to change the Labour leadership, they must do it openly and democratically through an election, not through resignations and pointless posturing.  If there has to be such an election, Jeremy Corbyn’s supporters throughout the movement will be ready for it.”
