John McDonnell – 2020 Comments on the Suspension of Jeremy Corbyn from the Labour Party

The comments made by John McDonnell, the Labour MP for Hayes and Harlington, on 29 October 2020.

On the day we should all be moving forward & taking all steps to fight antisemitism, the suspension of Jeremy Corbyn is profoundly wrong. In interests of party unity let’s find a way of undoing & resolving this.

I urge all party members to stay calm as that is the best way to support Jeremy and each other. Let’s all call upon the leadership to lift this suspension.
