But Corbyn allies hit back, saying party spending more than in any previous MEP poll.

Labour has hit back at claims that it is running a “mealy-mouthed” European elections campaign after new figures showed the party’s spending on Facebook ads was dwarfed by the Lib Dems, Change UK and Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party.

Jeremy Corbyn is under fire from his own MPs, who claim the party lacks a clear message on a second referendum and lacks the firepower to counter its rivals ahead of next Thursday’s poll, HuffPost UK has learned.

New data from the ‘People’s Vote’ campaign shows that from May 5 to May 11, Labour spent just £7,331 on Facebook advertising for the elections – less than a third of the Lib Dems outlay of £23,191.

Farage’s party spent the most with £26,776 and Change UK spent £21,490. The Conservatives spent just £2,286, the Greens £247 and Plaid Cymru £117. Read more
