Nottingham East CLP passes vote of no confidence in anti-Corbyn MP Chris Leslie

Chris Leslie (centre).

Chris Leslie is an outspoken critic of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, and has been said to be threatening to leave the party, so it should be no surprise that he was next to feel the wrath of his constituents.

The motion, brought by members of the Mapperly branch of Nottingham East, attacks the former shadow chancellor for his “disloyalty and deceit”, which it dubbed “a severe impediment to Labour Party electability”, which is “incompatible” with his continuing as the Labour candidate for Nottingham East.

Nottingham North CLP have passed a motion of no confidence in Chris Leslie. The MP, who is an arch critic of Jeremy Corbyn lost the vote ‘overwhelmingly’ according to a local Labour member.

Leslie is the fifth Labour MP to have their local branch formally express their displeasure via a vote of no confidence. Frank Field, now an independent MP after leaving the party, Kate Hoey, Joan Ryan and Gavin Shuker have lost similar votes.

Leslie did not attend the vote and has previously labelled party members who had expressed disapproval in him the “intolerant hard left”.

    This is the man who supported austerity and said ‘there is no magic money tree’. At the same time as he voted to replace the Trident nuclear status symbol.

    I hope the Nottingham East CLP will now move to replace him for the next general election.

    Why is it that anybody who disagrees with the behaviour of their representative and expresses disquiet, or displeasure, as is their democratic Right, is branded Far £eft, or a Corbynite/ Corbynista, Trot, dog, entryist, etc.? Why can they not just be people who are unhappy with their M.P.?
