The bright new world of Jeremy Corbyn and his "kinder, gentler" politics:
Labour MPs have been forced to call in the police over death threats in the last 48 hours after they refused to back Jeremy Corbyn, The Telegraph has learnt.
Vicky Foxcroft, a Labour whip, received a call to her constituency office which said: “If she doesn’t support Corbyn I will come down to the office and kick the f*** out of you.”
Police officers had to rush her office, close the shutters and attempt to trace the call after the man said he was on his way and hung up.
Another MP who resigned over Mr Corbyn’s leadership has received an email naming their child and threatening to kill them. Police have been passed the message and are now investigating.
Lucy Powell, the former shadow education secretary, received a message telling her to kill herself after announcing she would leave the frontbench over frustrations with the leadership.
It was among a string of messages laden with expletives and personal abuse which have been passed onto police.
A fourth Labour MP said they had become so concerned with the torrent of online abuse that they have forwarded the messages to police, while scores of others raised concerns...
Politicians and staff were said to be in tears over the abuse as it comes just weeks after the brutal murder of Jo Cox, the Labour MP for Batley and Spen who was shot and stabbed in her constituency.
A Labour source said: “Women MPs have been subjected to the most vile stuff – we’re going to rape you, kill you. There have been people in tears today.”
And, of course, accusations of a Zionist plot to get rid of their man are already comm0n currency among Corbynistas.
