It's based on a leaked memo written by one of Corbyn's closest aides who thinks half his colleagues are horrors and the project is failing

I’ve literally posted chunks of his message to friends. It’s not made up. He is very clear he still supports Corbyn but he’s sick of the behaviour of some LOTO colleagues. If reporters make up quotes attributes to people they complain and we get fired. He hasn’t denied it

He still says he supports Corbyn and wants him to be PM but he’s clearly sick of some of the antics of fellow LOTO staff

It’s the Labour Party conference. Funnily enough it is usual to write about the Labour Party this weekend. Guess what, it will be the Tories next weekend

The “evidence” is the actual quotes from the actual email from the actual aide who has actually resigned. Get a grip

Er I revealed the first cabinet resignation from Boris Johnson’s govt two weeks ago which landed with a splat on Saturday night. Imagine how well received that was in No10. I write the best stories I can get. Mostly that’s stuff causing trouble for the Tories as they are in govt

It’s a story because the bloke resigned quietly whilst telling his mates that he was going because the operation is a mess - which the last 24 hours rather reinforces don’t you think? These are HIS reasons for moving on

What is desperate about reporting things that senior Labour folk think the public should know? Funnily enough you can’t get Labour scoops by talking to Tories

When you break a difficult story on the Tories Boris Johnson’s people think you’re a pain in the arse reporter. When you break a difficult story on Team Corbyn his fans assume you’ve made it up because your an evil Tory. Which tells you something

Nothing has been invalidated. The BBC has been given his official resignation statement. I have obtained his private reasons as shared with friends. Stop being a cultist and look at the denials from Corbyn’s office or Fisher of my reporting. There has been none

When Andrew Fisher resigned he sent a message to close colleagues outlining 10 things that had caused him to quit. Many are coded attacks on the behaviour of Seumas Milne. He then added this:

This is big: Fisher has walked out, according to the Sunday Times. The project is rotting from the head now ...

I’ve accurately revealed a major resignation in both main parties in the last three weeks. Surprise surprise my sources on Fisher are Labour sources

No I’m reporting an important story on Labour which every major reporter who covers Labour in depth has stood up and said is important. Stop shooting the messenger
