U.K. Labour chief Jeremy Corbyn vows to sue his own party if he’s left off next leadership ballot

Jeremy Corbyn has threatened to sue his own party if he is blocked from standing in the U.K. leadership contest following a challenge by Angela Eagle.

Eagle, the former shadow business secretary, said the Labour leader is “not a bad man” but is “hiding behind a closed door” over calls for him to step down.

She launched a leadership bid Monday with the backing of more than 51 Labour MPs and has suggested Corbyn should not automatically appear on the ballot.
