A Tory MP has been forced to delete a ‘libelous tweet’ that accused Jeremy Corbyn of selling ‘British secrets to Communist spies’ after the Labour leader had ‘instructed solicitors’ to act.

The potential legal action referred to a tweet sent out by the Tory MP for Mansfield that wrongly accused Corbyn of selling ‘British secrets to Communist spies’:

Ben Bradley Corbyn Secrets to Communist Spies

Mr Corbyn had been urged to take legal action against the Tory MP by numerous high profile journalists including Owen Jones and Abi Wilkinson.

Whilst the Conservative MP has now deleted the tweet, he has so far yet to issue either an apology or a retraction for the false allegations.

Evolve needs your help more than ever!

We rely on the generosity of our readers to help fund the majority of our work - but we need a little more to make ends meet and enable us to grow.

If we can reach 1,000 regular subscribers, we will become entirely financially sustainable - and we'll also have a little extra so we can build upwards and outwards to make our work have an even bigger impact.

In the last month alone, our work on the Environment Bill has helped force a change in the law for the better. And, since Evolve was founded, our uniquely viral style of journalism has repeatedly put the establishment on the back foot and helped force genuinely positive progression.

But we want to do far more - and we need your help to do it.

The best way you can help us is by becoming a Monthly or Annual subscriber. This kind of regular income allows us to better plan for the future - firstly so we can pay the bills, and then so we can set aside funds and time to work on extra projects.

However, if you can't commit to a regular payment, one-off donations - no matter how small - also make a big difference to us, and we genuinely make the most of every single penny.

So, if you appreciate the work that Evolve does and you want to see us make an even bigger impact on the world, please think about contributing to our work in whatever way you possibly can.
