Jeremy Corbyn,the hard-left Labour MP who is tipped to lead the party, has been accused of “doing nothing” over child abuse in his constituency during the 1970s and 1980s.
Dozens of vulnerable children were raped and sexually abused in care homes run by the London borough of Islington.However most of the abusers escaped justice because allegations made at the time by victims were ignored and many files, which contained corroborating evidence, have been lost or shredded.
John Mann, a Labour MP, has sent Mr Corbyn an open letter in which he says that his failure to do more to tackle child abuse means it would be “inappropriate” for him to become Labour leader.
So John, sent a letter to Margaret, Lady Hodge have you? The MP who then was actually in charge of Islington’s child services?
Given that, you know, it is the local council which runs these things, not the MP for the constituency?
Anyway, heads up for the next attempt to derail the Corbyn train, eh?
