Ed hits back at McLuskey

Ed hits back at McLuskey

Comments by Len McLuskey about Labour right-wingers in the shadow cabinet are "reprehensible" and "disloyal", a spokesperson for Ed Miliband has said.

The general secretary of the Unite union had seemingly urged the Labour leader to replace 'Blairites' in the shadow cabinet.

"Len McCluskey does not speak for the Labour Party. This attempt to divide the Labour Party is reprehensible," the spokesperson said.

"It is the kind of politics that lost Labour many elections in the 1980s. It won’t work, it is wrong, it is disloyal to the party he claims to represent.”

In an interview with the New Statesman, Mr McLusky had said Mr Miliband should go into the next election "with a team that he’s confident in", arguing that:

“If [Ed Miliband] gets seduced by the Jim Murphys and the Douglas Alexanders, then the truth is that he’ll be defeated and he’ll be cast into the dustbin of history."
