A group on the Labour left, including Baroness Chakrabarti, is building a case for legal action to challenge Jeremy Corbyn’s suspension.

Shami Chakrabarti, the party’s former shadow attorney-general, and Howard Beckett, a Unite official, are reportedly helping the former leader to develop his strategy, says the Jewish News.

The party’s general secretary, David Evans – who is responsible for Labour’s disciplinary procedures – is reported to have made the decision for suspension in consultation with the party’s governance and legal unit.

However, a Corbyn ally told The Times: “We have people in there.” The group feels it is on strong ground after the party declined to clarify which rule Corbyn broke prior to his suspension.

Chakrabarti, who authored a much-criticised report into antisemitism within the party, was made a peer after completing the process.
