Former Home Secretary Alan Johnson has criticised the ‘narrow, sectarian left’, which he believes is ‘behind Jeremy Corbyn’ and ‘intolerant of other views’.
When asked if the general election result meant that the opportunity for another leadership challenge had gone, Mr. Johnson said: ‘The honest answer to that is yes’.
He then went on to attack some sections of the Labour leader’s support base, saying:
‘I feel this narrow sectarian left that is intolerant of other views is what is there behind Jeremy Corbyn – who is thoroughly decent and never says a bad word about anyone’.
‘But behind him there is something that reminds me of Militant in the early 80s’.
