http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/06/29/revealed-labour-mps-go-to-police-over-death-threats-after-refusa/?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter

Labour MPs have been forced to call in the police over death threats in the last 48 hours after they refused to back Jeremy Corbyn, The Telegraph has learnt.

Vicky Faircroft, a Labour whip, received a call to her constituency office which said: “If she doesn’t support Corbyn I will come down to the office and kick the f*** out of you.”

Police officers had to rush her office, close the shutters and attempt to trace the call after the man said he was on his way and hung up.

Another MP who resigned over Mr Corbyn’s leadership has received an email naming their child and threatening to kill them. Police have been passed the message and are now investigating.

Lucy Powell, the former shadow education secretary, received a message telling her to kill herself after announcing she would leave the frontbench over frustrations with the leadership.

It was among a string of messages laden with expletives and personal abuse which have been passed onto police.

A fourth Labour MP said they had become so concerned with the torrent of online abuse that they have forwarded the messages to police, while scores of others raised concerns.

The rhetoric of Mr Corbyn’s supporters has been criticised after John McDonnell initially encouraged activists to protest MPs – but later made clear he did not condone constituency office protests.

One former frontbencher has tabled a formal complaint to the Labour chief whip about the way some pro-Corbyn MPs have been addressing activists at rallies.

The spike in hostile messages was compared to the surge in the run-up to the Syrian air strikes vote last year, which led to a new security package for MPs being issued amid concerns over safety.

Politicians and staff were said to be in tears over the abuse comes just weeks after the brutal murder of Jo Cox, the Labour MP for Batley and Spen who was shot and stabbed in her constituency.

A Labour source said: “Women MPs have been subjected to the most vile stuff – we’re going to rape you, kill you. There have been people in tears today.”



That'll be the kinder, more tolerant, politics, then.

That'll be new 'old labour" then.

On a serious level, this is quite bizarre. Thanks to Ed millibands reforms of the leadership election process, Corbyn cannot actually be removed unless the party membership vote him out. And the £3 members who have packed the ranks will not do that.

The parliamentary members are irrelevant to the process.

Literally the only thing they can do is to decamp to another party, leaving Corbyn with his diminished cabal of supporters.

Unless Corbyn actually shows some respect for his colleagues and country, labour is finished.

Very very sad.

....And a good few of the £3 members are actually Tories, who wanted Labour to elect a vote loser.

I am afraid it is looking very much as if Militant Tendency is back; that didn't end well last time, and I don't see it being any better this time around.

Oh, another one-

Andrea Leadsom MP ‏@andrealeadsom 50m
Delighted to say I'm running for the @Conservatives Leadership.

Let's make the most of the Brexit opportunities!

#FreshStart


Don't know much about her, but she seemed semi-sane and coherent in that appalling 'debate' which consisted of the Leavers shouting Tory! at Boris.

Agree, Sabot, it's just a matter of time before it all calms down and order is restored.

At least the Tory squabbles are a bit less bloodthirsty and civil than the Labour infighting.

Yes, the civil servants.

Mind you, it would be good if Her Maj stormed into the Commons and shouted, In the name of God - GO! I'd vote for that.

I honestly had never heard of her, Sabot. The only one of the B-listers that means anything to me is Andrea Leadsom, mainly because she was speaking in sentences and not shrieking in that ghastly 'debate'.

Gove can also speak logically, in proper sentences, but he has all the charisma of a wet flannel.

Jewish MP Ruth Smeeth hounded from the launch of Labour's antisemitism inquiry in tears by Corbyn supporter. This is all getting worse.

Jeremy Corbyn has appeared to compare Israel to Islamic State at the launch of Labour's antisemitism report.

He said: "Our Jewish friends are no more responsible for the actions of Israel or the Netanyahu Government than our Muslim friends are for those of various self-styled Islamic states or organisations."
