The General Secretary of the country’s biggest union Unite, Len McCluskey – an ardent supporter of Jeremy Corbyn – has launched a blistering attack on Labour’s Deputy leader, Tom Watson, telling him that he should “be f**king well ashamed” of himself.

The Unite boss was speaking as part of the annual Durham Miners’ Gala today, and his blunt message to Watson was received by rapturous applause.

McCluskey’s astonishing comments came in response to Watson attacking Labour’s General Secretary, Jennie Formby – who is currently undergoing chemotherapy for cancer – over last week’s Panorama documentary outlining allegations of antisemitism within the Labour party.

Speaking in front of thousands of people at the event, McCluskey said:

“And whilst I’m talking about right-wing criticis, it would be remiss of me not to mention the disgraceful attacks levelled at our General Secretary, Jennie Formby.”

“Wrong in normal circumstances, but when Jennie is fighting cancer, they are despicable.”

“So I have a simple message for Tom Watson and his pals in the media – a simple message to Tom and his pals:

“You should f**king well be ashamed of yourself!”

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.
