Jeremy Corbyn has heaped pressure on Tom Watson over his ties to Max Mosley as he banned his deputy from taking any more money from the press reform campaigner.
Yesterday it emerged that Mr Mosley, a former Formula One boss, had his name listed as publisher of a campaign leaflet linking leprosy, venereal disease and tuberculosis to “coloured immigration” and calling for Jamaicans to be sent home.
The pamphlet was in support of a candidate for his fascist father Sir Oswald Mosley’s Union Movement in a 1961 by-election, and was unearthed by the Daily Mail in historical archives in Manchester.
Row over racist Max Mosley by-election leaflet
Privacy campaigner Max Mosley published a by-election leaflet saying: “Coloured immigration threatens your children’s health,” it has been claimed.
The 1961 leaflet, backing a candidate for his father Sir Oswald Mosley’s Union Movement, was found by the Daily Mail in archives in Manchester.
The newspaper says it raises questions over Mr Mosley’s evidence to a 2008 High Court trial.
Mr Mosley said he didn’t recall the leaflet and he was not a racist.
In evidence to the 2008 trial, in which he successfully sued the News of the World over reports about a sado-masochistic sex session he had had with five prostitutes, Mr Mosley denied any knowledge of the leaflet.
