Labour Moderates Savage Corbyn and Stop the War

The Labour frontbench nodded with agreement during Cameron’s statement on Paris, then former Shadow Cabinet members openly attacked their leader from the backbenches. Chris Leslie, who is increasingly a standard-bearer for Labour moderates, praised the PM and slammed Corbyn over shoot-to-kill:

“The Prime Minister is right that the police and security services need our full support at this time, but shouldn’t it be immediately to everyone – to everyone – that the police need the full and necessary powers, including the proportionate use of lethal force if need be, to keep our communities safe.”

Before Emma Reynolds attacked Corbyn’s Stop the War campaign:

“Does the Prime Minister agree that full responsibility for the attacks in Paris lies solely with the terrorists, and that any attempt by any organisation to somehow blame the west or France’s military intervention in Syria is not only wrong, disgraceful but also should be condemned.”

Corbyn appeared to be texting on his phone, making clear he wasn’t listening…

Earlier John Woodcock warned the deleted Stop the War blog post was “akin to blaming the Jewish people for their deaths under the Nazis. It is that serious”.

Meanwhile a Shadow minister has told the BBC“I am trying to respect the mandate he has but I felt physically sick, I just couldn’t stand it. He is not fit to be our leader or in any senior position in this country”So why doesn’t he resign?
