Jeremy Corbyn has been accused of "rewriting history" after deleting hundreds of outspoken articles and speeches from his website including a number of pieces critical of the EU... ... Julian Knight, a Conservative MP, said: "It's absolutely laughable that a man who is the leader of the opposition is scurrying around deleting his website like some sort of sixth former, he's trying to rewrite history.
"It just shows that the labour leadership now is at best amateurish. The fact is, Mr Corbyn is clearly against his own party when it comes to the EU and if he wasn't leader he would almost certainly be speaking out for the UK to leave.
"It is just laughable, does he really think that nobody will notice? He's been making the same speeches for 30 years."
Tensions between Mr Corbyn and Labour's official campaign to remain in the European Union have boiled over in recent days, amid a row over the amount of funding the campaign will receive from the party.
A number of Labour MPs have expressed private concerns that Mr Corbyn's lack of vocal support for the In campaign may persuade some Labour voters to back a Brexit instead.

He is interested in the union support and member support. He doesn't care if the MPs don't back him. If he survives this he can get the local activists to deselect the current MPs and put in place candidates who support his views. He'll hang on.
Word is that Angela Eagle is to challenge Jeremy Corbyn for the leadership of the Labour Party tomorrow. The buzz phrase is ABC - Anyone But Corbyn Mr Corbyn says he will SUE his own party if he is blocked from standing in leadership contest because MPs won't support him
Honestly what a farce! I'm not a Labour supporter but I do think JC is an interesting politician. Old school. I don't think he's Prime Minister material though but the labour members absolutely love him so he could be re elected by the party faithful.
Well Radio 4 are predicting he will be re elected leader and that there could be serious party split. They are also quoting Paddy Ashdown being involved. Pants Down Paddy eh? Things are bad if that's who they're going to for advice and inspiration.
