'Seven days to SAVE Labour' - Warning to Corbyn of time bomb to fix ...

Lord Blunkett insisted the Birkenhead MP's decision to quit the Labour whip called for a rethink of the "Corbyn project".

Mr Fields dramatically announced his decision to withdraw the Labour whip on Thursday as he accused his party leader of failing to get a grip of the anti-Semitism crisis engulfing the party.
