Dame Margaret Beckett MP is a UK deep state functionary and politician.
Beckett said she was disappointed but not surprised by a High Court decision on 28 July 2016 to allow Jeremy Corbyn to automatically stand in the Labour leadership election.She had voted on 12 July 2016 that Mr Corbyn should only be allowed to stand if he received 51 MPs' nominations, having herself nominated his opponent Owen Smith. A total of 18 members of Labour's National Executive Committee voted that he should stand automatically, with 14 against, including Margaret Beckett.
Labour donor and ex-parliamentary candidate Michael Foster was unsuccessful in challenging Mr Corbyn's inclusion without having to get MPs' nominations and the Judge ordered Foster to pay the defendants' costs.
