Left-wing author Owen Jones has been reported to the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) over claims that private messages written by Labour Party staff members have been published in his new book.
The JC understands that the ICO has received a complaint after extracts of 'This Land', the journalist’s analysis of the state of the British left after the defeat of Jeremy Corbyn, were published by the online publication Vice on Sunday.
In the extract, a series of messages from Labour staff members are detailed, all of which express seriously negative views about senior party figures include Yvette Cooper, Liz Kendall and Andy Burnham.
The messages also include highly defamatory claims about a former MP.
