Team Corbyn Intelligence Failure

save+jezThe Times has got hold of a spreadsheet drawn up by Team Corbyn, ranking Labour MPs from being core supporters of Jez to hostile enemies. Amusingly the leak throws up a considerable number of anomalies that are immediately apparent. Corbyn’s political secretary Katy Clark clearly needs better intel.

Vernon Coaker, for example, is down as “core group plus”, the group that is apparently second most supportive of Corbyn. He’s on the record taking Corbyn to task on Trident, Nato and Northern Ireland and gives this glowing endorsement of his leader: “we’ll have to see how it works out”. Is Sir Keir Starmer really a “core group plus” Corbynista? He’s openly dismissed Corbyn as “not the messiah” and has been linked again and again with a leadership putsch. Hilariously, Mike Gapes, slayer of the Corbynista Twitter trolls, is down as “neutral but not hostile”, despite his record loudly opposing the new insurgency. Another vociferous critic, Wes Streeting, is down as “not hostile” which he will surely take as an insult. As is Roger Godsiff, who has openly rowed with Team Corbyn. Burnham is obviously on the fence so they’ve got him right.

Dan Jarvis is down as “negative” rather than “hostile”, despite being at the head of the so-called ‘G20’ shadow shadow cabinet and plotting an unsubtle leadership bid. Also in this non “hostile” group are Corbyn-loathing Kevan Jones, Stephen Doughty of the infamous live resignation,Trot-fighting John Spellar, Jess Phillips, Jonny Reynolds and Steve Reed. You could hardly get more hostile.

Also worth noting that a large number of Tom Watson’s allies are in the two “negative” groupings. As well as Ian Austin and Michael Dugher, key Watson for Deputy Leader nominators like Lucy Powell, Shabana Mahmood, Jon Ashworth are all down as “negative“. Top Watson supporters in the anti-Jez camp will be worth looking out for when the counter-revolution comes…

Quote of the Day

Jo Swinson on Chris Rennard…

“Vince — and Tim before him — have repeatedly, publicly said Rennard is not welcome anywhere near their frontbench team, even as an adviser. I remain deeply frustrated that he was not expelled from the party through its disciplinary process. It just feels wrong, and I do not want Lord Rennard to continue as a member of the party. As far as I am concerned, he is not welcome.”
