Labour will no longer use Ken Loach as the producer of their election broadcasts following his comments on antisemitism this week.
According to the right-leaning Guido Fawkes website Labour have plans for two more broadcasts and sources have confirmed that Mr Loach will not be involved in their production.
This comes after the film-maker demanded that the Labour MPs who demonstrated against antisemitism in Parliament Square be kicked out of the party.
Referring to the group of more than 30 MPs from Jeremy Corbyn’s party who joined the Enough is Enough protest organised by the Board of Deputies and the Jewish Leadership Council, Mr Loach said: “These are the ones we need to kick out.”
In a speech delivered to 1,500 supporters near Bristol, the I, Daniel Blake director said: “Unless we get Labour MPs who believe in that manifesto last year we won't get in power.
“If they've been going to the demonstration against him outside Westminster... those are the ones we need to kick out.”
He added: “You cannot work with people who have come to undermine the biggest challenge we've had - we've never had a leader like Corbyn before in the whole history of the Labour Party… and that's why the dirty tricks are going to come out.”
