No confidence motions in Berger withdrawn following Labour row | ITV News

Moves to hold a vote of no confidence in Labour MP and outspoken leadership critic Luciana Berger have been withdrawn after a heated row in the party ranks.

Ms Berger has been a prominent critic of Jeremy Corbyn over his handling of anti-Semitism and his position on Brexit.

A source in the Leader of the Opposition’s office said the withdrawal of the no confidence motions was “the right decision”.

Labour deputy leader Tom Watson had earlier intervened in the controversy to offer his support to Ms Berger in what he called her battle against “bullying hatred” from members of her local party.
