Angela Eagle’s constituency office vandalised after leadership bid launch
Brick thrown through window of MP’s office following launch of campaign to unseat Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn
The constituency office of the Labour MP Angela Eagle has been vandalised following the launch of her campaign to unseat Jeremy Corbyn as leader of the party.
Merseyside police said they attended Eagle’s constituency office in the Liscard area of Wallasey, Merseyside, on Tuesday and were investigating a report of criminal damage.
A spokesperson for Eagle said a brick had been thrown through the window of the office either overnight or on Tuesday morning.
Police said a members meet-and-greet and Q&A in a Luton hotel scheduled for Tuesday night had been relocated after staff received threats.
“Police were informed and have offered protection for the event. Angela is continuing with the visit as planned,” said a spokesperson. Pro-Corbyn protesters picketed the new venue.
Eagle called on Corbyn to rein in his supporters, saying attacks such as the vandalising of her office were “being done in his name, and he needs to get control of the people who are supporting him and make certain that this behaviour stops and stops now. It is bullying. It has absolutely no place in politics in the UK and it needs to end.”
On Monday Eagle formally launched her bid to replace Corbyn as Labour leader, describing herself as “a strong Labour woman” who could heal divisions in the party and lead it to election victory.
Last week more than three-quarters of Labour MPs – 172 – backed a motion of no confidence in Corbyn’s leadership, while 40 voted in favour of him. The Labour leader responded by saying he had the support of Labour members and he was going nowhere.
“As someone who has also received death threats this week and previously, I am calling on all Labour party members and supporters to act with calm and treat each other with respect and dignity, even where there is disagreement,” he said.
“I utterly condemn any violence or threats, which undermine the democracy within our party and have no place in our politics.”
Meanwhile, the Manchester Gorton constituency Labour party has been suspended following claims of bullying, intimidation and voting impropriety. A Labour source said infighting in the Gorton CLP had been ongoing even before Corbyn became leader.
One member said the fact that the local MP, Gerald Kaufman, 86, was unwell and unlikely to stand for re-election had caused some members to start manoeuvring for control of the local party.
