At a rally in Cardiff last night supporters of beleaguered Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn have told the three Cardiff Labour MPs they should “back their leader or step aside “.
In comments squarely aimed at MPs Stephen Doughty (Cardiff South and Penarth) , Jo Stevens (Cardiff Central) and Kevin Brennan (Cardiff West), Corbyn supporters challenged all those MPs calling for Jeremy Corbyn to step down to put up a challenger to him and fight a leadership contest.
Shavanah Taj, Wales secretary of the PCS Union, said members of the Labour Party believed that Jeremy Corbyn ” is the voice of the masses” – and accused Labour MPs of “ignoring party members“.
She claimed that local constituents were going to their MPs and asking “What the hell is going on? We know who our leader is. So get behind your leader, back your leader or step aside “
