Jared O’Mara suspended from Labour Party

Sheffield Hallam MP Jared O’Mara has been suspended from the Labour Party.

The news comes after a series of offensive online posts from the 35 year old’s past resurfaced in the past few days.

Labour had earlier launched an investigation into the claims made in the media over the last couple of days.

Yesterday O’Mara resigned from the Commons Women and Equalities Committee, and after calls for Labour to take action, they have temporarily suspended the man who was only elected earlier this year after defeating Nick Clegg in the snap election.
