Jamie Reed MP has called out John McDonnell for "encouraging activists to hassle democratically-elected MPs".
Video footage obtained by The Mail On Sunday revealed the shadow chancellor, Jeremy Corbyn's right-hand man, encouraging left-wing activists to hassle MPs within his own party as well as the Government's Conservative MPs in 2012.
In the video, he's heard to be saying: "I want to be in a situation where Tory or Labour MPs, wherever they go, it’s f****** kicking off." This has led to a number of MPs criticising the representative for Hayes and Harlington for encouraging backlash against them.
Mr Reed, the Labour MP for Copeland who doesn't see always see eye-to-eye with Jeremy Corbyn or John McDonnell, called the tape "depressing, but not surprising", and expressed his disapproval of the "undemocratic" behaviour.
