THUGMENTUM: Labour MP Wes Streeting THREATENED to push journalist under train

Wes Streeting, the MP for Ilford North – who is widely tipped to replace Sir Keir Starmer as Labour leader – threatened to kill the newspaper reporter Jan Moir.

He followed up with: “Considering starting my own vigilante org to push nasty people under trains, first up Jan Moir, followed by Geert Wilders…”

In a leaked Direct Message, Streeting – who is the grandson of a London gangster and armed robber who hung out with the Kray Twins – was also accused of threatening a voter on Election Day.

He is alleged to have sent a direct message that read: “I’ve let you have your fun for long enough now..

..If you don’t delete all references to me and my work from your profile by 8pm tonight, I will have every Labour Party lawyer I can get my hands on working around the clock to find out who you are and make you pay.

“Your choice, I wouldn’t risk it.”

Despite the historical threats, Wes demanded “urgent action” in October 2020 to make directors of social media companies criminally liable if they allowed content that incited terror and violence.

“Keir Starmer is right to demand criminal liability for directors of social media companies who allow content that incites terror and violence to spread through their platforms and urgent action.”

Conservative MP Brendan Clarke-Smith said that Streeting’s tweets were “shameful” and highlighted the history of female politicians and journalists receiving death threats on social media.

Politicalite approached Wesley Streeting for comment but received no reply.
