People’s Assembly sets the date for march on Parliament as McDonnell calls on Brits to force another general election. By Steve Sweeney and Conrad Landin
A MAJOR national demonstration will take place in London on July 1 to get rid of “Theresa and the terrorists,” the Star can exclusively reveal.
The People’s Assembly called the demo, saying: “Street mobilisations are more important than ever” and can “create a crisis the Tories can’t recover from.”
It comes a day after shadow chancellor John McDonnell called on Brits to “get out on the streets” to force another general election “as early as possible.”
In his first major speech since Labour’s election surge last Thursday, Mr McDonnell also revealed Labour will seek to exploit the DUP’s manifesto call for the removal of the bedroom tax to axe the hated policy.
He confirmed that Labour would “keep its winning team together” and not replace shadow cabinet loyalists with former critics of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn from the party’s right.
“When there are vacancies, yes, we will ask people to serve… in a spirit of comradeship,” he told delegates at food union BFAWU’s conference in Southport yesterday.
