A VIDEO has emerged in which former Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell can clearly be heard calling for social unrest across the UK.
The socialist MP, a long-time favourite of hard-left group Momentum, was caught on tape addressing protestors in London’s Trafalgar Square.
In it, the 71-year-old – who was Jeremy Corbyn’s effective no.2 for more than four years – even demands “occupations” in a bid to force the Tories from power.
He can be heard shouting: “Bring on the strikes!
The Labour veteran was addressing The People’s Assembly in central London on Saturday which called on people to “Strike, Protest and Resist”.
It is not known how many sitting Labour MPs are currently affiliated with The People’s Assembly.
On its website the Assembly openly describes the present parliamentary Labour Party as “weak and ineffective”.
But no one is going to do it for us – we will just have to do it ourselves.
The march, which was held under the slogan “Britain is Broken”, was backed by the Trades Union Congress (TUC) as well as other controversial left-wing organisations, including Black Lives Matter and Extinction Rebellion.
It was also attended by other hard-left Labour figures, including Mr Corbyn and Diane Abbott, who like Mr McDonnell both addressed the crowd.
A spokesman for the People’s Assembly said a general election was just one of the many demands of the rally.
