Progress’s Conor Pope says “I do happen to believe what Corbyn thinks about Venezuela now is relevant and important, but not because of votes. Judgement and morals. Corbyn held up Chavismo as a model. Fair to ask where went wrong.” Socialism comrade, socialism went wrong as it always does…

CCHQ is piling in on the issue too:
