Jared O’Mara could be turfed out of Labour by his local activists tonight as they crunch hold meeting about disgraced MP’s future

DISGRACED MP Jared O’Mara could be turfed out of Labour tonight by his local activists as they hold a crunch meeting about his future.

It comes after leader Jeremy Corbyn denied his party was slow to deal with the 35-year-old’s vile slurs after they hid allegations about him for more than a month.

The Sheffield Hallam Constituency Labour Party are meeting tonight to discuss the future of the now-suspended MP, after homophobic, misogynist and racist comments in online forums were revealed.

The Sun also reported that a woman alleges the shamed bar-owner watched on as bouncers gave her a black eye after she rowed with him.

And this morning he was hit with a fresh racism row after describing Thai women as “mail order wives”.

Newly-unearthed comments include sordid rants about an “involuntary deep throat blow job” and “bumming girls”, and a 2004 claim that he was “a little hung over and a lot horny… now I’m off back to bed… to dream about Girls Aloud and a tub of margarine”.

Ahead of this evening’s meeting, which could see him turfed out by the party, a Labour member told BBC Radio Sheffield local supporters had been instructed not to speak to the media.

It comes after Mr Corbyn insisted that Labour took the matter seriously after suspending the Sheffield Hallam MP while allegations against him were investigated.

Appearing on an LBC radio programme guest-hosted by London mayor Sadiq Khan, he said: “The issue came to light last weekend.

“It was discussed at the Parliamentary Labour Party on Monday. The later revelations appeared the following day. He was suspended on Wednesday morning.”

Mr O’Mara is also the subject of a Labour inquiry over claims he called a constituent an “ugly bitch” earlier this year, an allegation he denies.

However, the decision to suspend the whip followed further claims about his online comments, including a reference to actress Angelina Jolie performing oral sex.

Mr Corbyn said: “Anybody making abusive comments anywhere is unacceptable, completely wrong, and has to be challenged and dealt with.

“It became apparent that there was stuff on the internet from Jared O’Mara that was, actually, some of it, was quite old, the early 2000s, and this came to light.”

Mr Corbyn added: “He then discussed it, and made a very, very full apology to the Parliamentary Labour Party on Monday night which was, actually, quite well received.

“After that it became apparent that there was also stuff on the internet from much later on than that. And, on the basis of that, we thought the right thing to do was to suspend his membership of the party, and thus of the Parliamentary Labour Party.

“An investigation is now under way, and that will take place, and a result will come from that.”

The Labour leader said the Harvey Weinstein controversy had highlighted the need for people to be able to report alleged abuse.
