Cor­byn out? Labour leader voted Brexit, claims Bryant

The Daily Telegraph - - News -

A Labour MP who re­signed from the front bench on Sun­day said he thought that Jeremy Cor­byn se­cretly voted to leave the EU in the ref­er­en­dum.

Chris Bryant, who stepped down as shadow Com­mons leader, claimed that Mr Cor­byn had re­fused to tell him how he had voted. He also told the BBC Mr Cor­byn should step down as leader or he would “de­stroy the Labour Party”.

Re­spond­ing to Mr Bryant’s vot­ing claim, a spokesman for the Labour leader said: “It’s a ridicu­lous thing to sug­gest.

“Jeremy tweeted im­me­di­ately af­ter he voted that he voted to Re­main, so the mat­ter is al­ready pub­lic.”
