Diane Abbott makes an amusing threat to Blairite MPs this lunchtime, warning them to get in line when her man is leader:
“the noisiest members of the parliamentary Labour Party will have to calm down, if and when, Jeremy is elected”
Dissent against the dear leader will not be tolerated…
That’s the same Diane Abbott who, just a couple of hours earlier, boasted about how she and Corbyn used to regularly rebel against her own Labour government:

Corbyn himself has rebelled against the Labour whip some 500 times.
Perhaps not the brightest idea to remind everyone of your rebelliousness when you’re calling on your colleagues not to rebel…
