Labour members are planning a mass walkout at Tom Watson’s conference speech this afternoon. And as for Brexit, it’s safe to say Labour remains divided on the issue of whether Britain should stay in or leave the EU. Not so, says Len McCluskey. The Unite boss was asked by Sky News’s Beth Rigby about the split over Brexit currently tearing the Labour party apart. It’s safe to say he did not take the question well:

Rigby: ‘Your friend Jon Lansman was really upset about this NEC statement. It’s basically a stitch up’

McCluskey: ‘Don’t be trying to cause division where no division exists. Jon Lansman never said that. Stop telling lies. You should be ashamed of yourself.’

Oh dear. Another MSM plot to do down the Labour party…
