Labour moderate Wes Streeting has told LBC's Andrew Castle that Richard Burgon and Dawn Butler should be ejected from the deputy leadership contest. Referring to their refusal to sign a pledge
to stamp out anti-Semitism, the Ilford North MP told Castle: "Both Richard Burgon and Dawn Butler - ironically, the shadow's equalities secretary - they haven't signed those pledges and I think that's just absolutely appalling. It should just rule them out of the race altogether as it says we know best and we're still not listening"
. All leadership candidates in both contests have signed the pledge, with the exception of Burgon and Butler.
