How do you feel about long-serving servants of your party who share your view on Europe, Alastair Campbell, being turfed out of the party while people who are caught on tape making anti-semitic racist comments, the sort of thing you say you object to from Donald Trump, are still in the party – Peter Willsman who’s very close to Jeremy Corbyn of course?”

Would you feel uncomfortable if in a few weeks time Peter Willsman remains in the party, having claimed that anti-semitism is not only made up, but has been created by the Israeli embassy, would you feel uncomfortable if he’s still there?

“A whole number of his top team, not just one person, lots of them, are involved in decisions around individual complaints, and what they do is they interfere and they lower the sanctions so that people aren’t suspended, they’re just given a warning letter.

When it comes to the actual cases. if they’re his mates, he doesn’t demonstrate zero tolerance … trust in him has gone.”
