Frank Field told withdraw resignation or face expulsion from Labour party

Jeremy Corbyn's remarks have been blasted by former chief rabbi Jonathan Sacks

A Labour spokesperson said, "Jeremy Corbyn thanks Frank Field for his service to the Labour Party".

Frank Field will now sit in the House of Commons as an independent following his dramatic resignation on Thursday afternoon.

Labour's chief whip has told Frank Field he will be kicked out of the party in two weeks unless he withdraws his resignation from the party whip.

In a letter, Mr Field said: 'I am resigning the whip for two principal reasons.

The first centres on the latest example of Labour's leadership becoming a force for anti-Semitism in British politics.

"Britain fought the Second World War to banish these views from our politics, but that superhuman effort and success is now under huge and sustained internal attack", he wrote.

"But I can not, through continuing to take the Labour whip, lend any legitimacy to the most appalling culture which is now dominating national and local Labour Party institutions", he added.

A Labour source said "Frank has been looking for an excuse to resign for some time" and, under party rules, he could not resign as a Labour MP and continue to be a member of the party.

"Reports of bullying, intimidation and nastiness are rife on social media taken along with the drift in the Labour Party to the extreme left and its association with racist and anti-Semitic views this Corbynite Labour party must cut most moderate Labour members to the bone - Mr Field is right to call them out on this".

The Bassetlaw MP also defended the decision of Mr Field to resign, saying the party needed to address the "atmosphere of bullying, intimidation, extremism and racism".

US Open punishes female player for flashing sports bra on court
Many have been quick to call attention to the fact that male tennis players are often seen without their shirt off on the court. Meanwhile, several male players were forced to retire early from their matches this week due to the scorching heat.

Explaining his decision, he said working class voters "gave politicians a clear instruction to take the country out of the EU".

"The Liberal Democrats continue to have strong policy disagreements with our new "independent" MP, not least on Mr Field's continued support for Brexit, which we feel will harm many of Birkenhead's most vulnerable and poorest residents and look forward to continuing to debate these issues with him". I said I would dispute that and appeal that.

"I wish to be the Labour party candidate at the next election and, if I am not, I shall stand as an independent Labour candidate".

"I think he will find he will get very, very few votes".

"I was told, "of course you would remain a member of the Labour Party" - but that may not be the position and I will learn about that later today".

"I said that I wish to remain a member of the Labour party". That Ms Reecejones should not be a member of the Party, let alone represent us in public positions, has been underscored by decisions taken by Wirral Council.

"It would be an absolute tragedy if the Labour Party were to split, but we should be in no doubt that this is the biggest crisis facing the party since 1981".

Mr Field said that he meant to continue in Westminster as an Independent.He added: "I also intend, providence willing, to represent those views when the next election is called".

"If other Labour MPs don't follow Frank Field's example, they are continuing to endorse Jeremy Corbyn's abject failure to act".
