Swindon's Conservative MPs say Labour is ’not fit to govern’ after the suspension of former leader Jeremy Corbyn. 

The former prime ministerial hopeful was suspended earlier today over his reaction to the Equality and Human Rights Commission’s report into anti-Semitism in the party during his leadership.

The report found Labour broke equality law in its handling of anti-Semitism complaints with Jeremy Corbyn bearing ultimate responsibility for the failings.

South Swindon MP and Justice Secretary Robert Buckland said: "It is less than a year since the Labour Party and their current leader aggressively campaigned to make Corbyn prime minister. 

"These damning revelations demonstrate that they are hopelessly divided and not fit to govern."

North Swindon MP Justin Tomlinson added: "We saw just how nasty the Corbyn cult was in North Swindon which led to the suspension of their parliamentary candidate. 

"The EHRC report has shone a light onto just how embedded this was into the culture of the Labour Party. 

"Keir Starmer is right to finally take action but it will never be forgotten that he campaigned to get Corbyn into Number 10."
