DAVID MILIBAND has accused Jeremy Corbyn of using “wrecking tactics” against his successor Sir Keir Starmer.
Mr Miliband, who quit front-line politics in 2010 after losing to his brother Ed in his bid to become Labour leader, launched his attack in response to the row over a leaked report into Labour’s handling of anti-semitism complaints.
Former Labour leader Mr Corbyn has submitted to Labour’s inquiry into the 860-page dossier, which details conversations between HQ staff suggesting they withheld funds from target seats, obstructed the leader’s office and worked against electoral victory, that internal sabotage prevented Labour from forming a government in 2017.
Former members of his shadow cabinet have also accused party staff of deliberately ruining his chances for factional reasons.
Over the weekend, Mr Corbyn’s allies said that it was “not impossible that Jeremy Corbyn might now be in his third year as a Labour prime minister were it not for the unauthorised, unilateral action taken by a handful of senior party officials.”
But Mr Miliband, former Labour foreign secretary when Tony Blair was PM, said blaming party staff was a “pure wrecking tactic from Jeremy Corbyn and the Corbynites.”
