The motion to remove Tom Watson as the deputy leader of the Labour party has been withdrawn today. The plan, which would have seen the deputy leader position abolished from the Labour party, was withdrawn this morning following outrage from Watson and several other party figures. Speaking today, Tony Blair blasted the plot as 'undemocratic and politically dangerous'. It was withdrawn after Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn submitted an alternative proposal which will see the post of deputy leader 'reviewed' instead. In an interview with Nick Robinson on BBC Radio 4 this morning, Watson said: 'These kind of things happen in Venezuela, not in UK politics'. Watson also described the Momentum plot as 'a sectarian attack on the party'.
