Labour MP Chris Williamson’s ‘democracy roadshow’ criticised

An ally of Jeremy Corbyn’s has rejected claims he is using a tour of Labour constituencies to push for the removal of critics of the party leader.

Chris Williamson said his “democracy roadshow” was an attempt to engage seriously with activists, rather than oust MPs whose views he disagreed with.

Veteran MP Barry Sheerman has accused his colleague of deliberately targeting the seats of “moderate” MPs.

He urged Mr Corbyn to condemn what amounted to a “deselection roadshow”.

Mr Williamson has called for Labour MPs to face mandatory reselection before the next general election as part of a package of sweeping internal reforms designed to give activists greater power over policy.
