6 September 2019 — The Electronic Intifada
Jon Lansman, a prominent figure in the UK Labour Party, advocated that Jeremy Corbyn be removed as party leader three years ago.
The revelation challenges Lansman’s reputation as a key Corbyn supporter.
In 2016, Lansman told Labour activist Graham Bash that the left would be much better served if Corbyn was replaced by John McDonnell, the shadow finance minister.
Bash recounted his conversation with Lansman to The Electronic Intifada.
