Workington MP lands Labour front bench job

Workington MP lands Labour front bench job

A series of senior MPs who quit in protest at Mr Corbyn's leadership have returned to the fold, although the leader's office appeared unaware that one of the so-called rebels had never actually resigned from the front bench in the first place.

More than 60 Labour MPs quit Corbyn's top team in July partly in protest over his performance during the European Union referendum.

Meanwhile, Mr Corbyn is expected to announce further appointments to his frontbench team later today.

The Parliamentary Labour Party (PLP) meeting came days after long-standing chief whip Rosie Winterton was replaced by Nick Brown, who served under Gordon Brown in the same role.

Their move comes after 25 rebels agreed to accept shadow ministerial roles following Mr Corbyn's re-election as Labour leader.

"But I think he has said, not only tonight but at other times, that the evidence appears to show that, that Russian Federation was involved in that bombing, or if not Russian Federation, the Syrian air force, and all the evidence around it appears to show that it was a war crime".

McCaffrey was also told that Mr Corbyn would not lose sleep over Mr McGinn's resignation because he had been "disloyal" - and that he was due to be sacked anyway.

Stalybridge and Hyde MP Mr Reynolds said Brexit and Mr Corbyn's renewed mandate led to his return to the front bench.

Asked about reports that Mr Corbyn described Russian Federation as having "apparently" bombed targets in Syria, the source said the evidence surrounding atrocities was "often very murky".

The duo, the MPs for St Helens North and Halifax, are said to have handed in their notice after firebrand leader Mr Corbyn's reshuffle.

Leading MPs at odds with Mr Corbyn are reported to be setting up their own informal body to put forward policy initiatives in competition with the official shadow cabinet.

He said the Conservative Party's response to the financial difficulties faced by the NHS is to "pick a fight with the vital junior doctors and nurses who deliver the care we all rely on".

Asked about the "shadow shadow cabinet" on the BBC's Andrew Marr Show, Sir Keir said: "There are unresolved issues in the parliamentary Labour Party".

"We do need to resolve them as soon as possible".
