New polling carried out by YouGov has found that Labour voters are split over the decision taken by Keir Starmer not to reinstate Jeremy Corbyn as a Labour MP with 38% backing the move and 32% saying the decision was wrong.
The organisation published the findings of its snap poll this evening, in the wake of the announcement from the Labour leader this morning that the Islington MP would not have the Parliamentary Labour Party whip restored.
The research showed that 50% of the public feel that the decision, taken after a panel of five national executive committee members opted to reinstate Corbyn as a party member on Tuesday evening, was right.
Corbyn was suspended nearly three weeks ago after claiming that “the scale of the problem was also dramatically overstated for political reasons by our opponents” in his response to the Equality and Human Rights Commission report.
