A Jewish Labour MP and critic of Jeremy Corbyn is facing a battle to keep her Parliamentary seat after party members loyal to the leader moved to oust her.

Dame Margaret Hodge faces a re-selection battle in Barking, which she has held for 25 years, after Corbynistas triggered a ballot.

Jeremy Corbyn's Chief Of Staff Karie Murphy Moved To Party HQ Role For Snap Election .
Jeremy Corbyn’s chief of staff Karie Murphy has been moved from his Commons office and given a role at the party’s HQ for the coming general election. The switch follows fury at the highest levels of the party at the departure of policy chief Andrew Fisher, who is understood to have been frustrated with Murphy’s management style and her handling of a range of issues including Brexit and internal party decisions.
