Frank Field reels from vile bile of Jeremy Corbyn's troll army

The veteran MP who resigned the Labour whip over Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership has been bombarded with shocking abuse by internet .

Frank Field plunged his party into turmoil last week when he quit the party whip after nearly 40 years as an MP, blaming Mr Corbyn for making the party a ‘force for anti-Semitism’.

Now the 76-year-old social reformer has been targeted by an outpouring of bile on the internet, with militant Left-wingers describing him as a ‘Tory rent boy’ who should ‘f*** off and die’.

Other messages accused Mr Field of being part of the ‘Israel Zionist lobby’ and described him as an ‘evil b******’.

Mr Field’s resignation has led to warnings that the party faces a ‘catastrophic split’ if other Labour MPs also quit. Mr Field has vowed to employ ‘the best legal minds’ to challenge a ruling that he cannot remain a party member after resigning the whip.

In his parting shot, the Birkenhead MP warned that the party was governed by ‘a culture of intolerance, nastiness and intimidation’ – and the abuse he has received on tweets and emails appears to back his argument.

Within minutes of his resignation, one Twitter user had written: ‘Frank Field is a ****. End of.’

Others described him as a ‘scumbag’ and ‘Red Tory’ – Mr Field has voted with the Conservatives on several policy matters – and said he ‘needs sectioning’.

The former Welfare Minister was also called a ‘gammon ****’. Gammon is a derogatory term used by Left-wingers for middle-aged white men – a reference to their supposedly ‘scarlet and irate’ complexions – which was popularised by Matt Zarb-Cousin, Mr Corbyn’s former spokesman.

Mr Field also received abusive emails at his Commons office, defending Mr Corbyn over the anti-Semitism and Zionism row which has engulfed the party for weeks.

One said: ‘The claim of anti-Semitism is obviously bogus AND YOU KNOW IT. Israel is the purest evil on Earth and you are siding with them. I am glad that you have left Labour, we don’t need evil lackies [sic] like you.’
