Marxist Labour Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell has called on “every Labour member” to join a counterdemonstration tomorrow targetting the Great Brexit Betrayal March. Tom Newton Dunn, Political Editor of The Sun, reported the remarks:
John McDonnell calling on “all Labour members” to join a counter demonstration against Tommy Robinson/UKIP’s Brexit protest in Whitehall tomorrow pm: “The working class of Britain have a proud history of beating the far right”. Unlikely this will end well.
However, his remarks were not well received:
McDonnell is a disgrace. And people really want this thug or I should say advocator of violence (I doubt he ever gets his hands dirty) in Government?
