'It was a bit tongue and cheek': McDonnell on Churchill

John McDonnell has called Sir Winston Churchill a "villain" over his role in dealing with striking miners in 1910. He made his comments at a Politico event on Wednesday and did this to provoke the audience, he said. McDonnell's comments didn't go down well with other MPs who say that Churchill was a British hero and that his 'foolish' statement was used as a publicity stunt.
