EU rift Cor­byn’s of­fice worked against us, says Alan John­son

The Daily Telegraph - - News -

Jeremy Cor­byn’s of­fice was “work­ing against” the of­fi­cial Labour cam­paign to keep Bri­tain in the EU, the leader of the group claimed.

Alan John­son, the vet­eran Labour MP who headed the party’s Re­main cam­paign, made the claim in a let­ter to sup­port­ers leaked to the me­dia.

He said: “Every­one needs to make their own as­sess­ment as to whether more could have been done to pre­vent this dis­as­trous re­sult.

“I will cer­tainly do this, as I hope will the Leader’s Of­fice. At times it felt as if they were work­ing against the rest of the party and had con­flict­ing ob­jec­tives.

“I was proud to work with some great peo­ple who tried their very best to get the re­sult we all wanted. No­body in the lead­er­ship had the right to un­der­mine their ef­forts.”
