    I would have thought to a lot of the Labour faihful Ronnie Rosenthal would have been one of the last people they wanted leading the party

    Why they will qualify: Nuno Espirito Santo is actually a tactical genius.

    'He was never a Marxist. He was not hell-bent on the destruction of Western capitalism. He was a socialist. Nor was he an antisemite, and there is no serious evidence which suggests that he was, though we certainly do not absolve him of poor judgement, for instance in joining various internet forums in his years on the backbenches. He was a flawed politician who made mistakes.'

    Flawed? Mistakes? It's an outrage!

    ‘We also learnt that Corbyn himself has been a member of five online groups which have propagated anti-Semitic conspiracy theories, such as that the number of deaths at Auschwitz has been exaggerated and that Israelis have harvested the organs of Arab children. Also, they have posted links to the loathsome views of white supremacists, including the leader of the Ku Klux Klan.

    Despite being a contributor to such sites, Corbyn claimed — preposterously in my view — not to have noticed such postings and continued until this week to be a member of two of these groups. But the most egregious example of Corbyn’s shameful anti-Semitism was his support for a truly disgusting mural in London portraying caricature Jewish bankers playing Monopoly on the backs of what appear to be naked slaves. Thus it depicted Jews as evil conspirators working to oppress the masses.

    It was an image of which the Nazis would have been proud.’

    This is fun.

    Two articles, two years apart, same journalist, same “evidence”...different conclusions.

    Middle East Eye is a rancid antisemitic cesspit.

    He looked at a mural! The epitome of evil.

    Illegal wars. Corruption. Buddying up with dictators with dreadful human rights records. Unquestioning support for Israel. Selling off huge swathes of the public sector to private firms. Appalling language and treatment of immigrants. Removal of civil liberties because 'terror'.

    All of this is fine but don't join a Facebook group or look at a mural.

    What a society we'd have if every politician was held up to the same level of scrutiny as Corbyn.

    If the media were never going to allow him to win, its clear he should d have stepped down a lot earlier, surely?

    I don’t think so, he is largely referring to the same things but coming to different conclusions...the only difference seems to be he is no longer leader.

    As for stepping down earlier, had he stepped down then there was no guarantee that the PLP would have put forward someone on the left to a leadership ballot. I am fairly sure Corbyn would have stood down after the 2017 election but the numbers didn’t exist in parliament to make that happen. I reckon he had been leader in name only for a while such was the shit show the Labour Party became.
    No.

    It makes you wonder how he was going to tear down capitalism when he could even get his own party's complaints department working OK..
