Just when the Tory Party is ripping itself apart in private the Labour Party opts for a very public battle.
After Jeremy Corbyn learned Saturday that Hilary Benn was part of a leadership coup he sacked him over the telephone.
Benn was already scheduled to appear on the Andrew Marr show at 9 am Sunday and appear he did.
He controlled the interview managing to ignore the question of whether he was part of a coup or not.
Saturday Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn confirmed he was going nowhere but it seems the Parliamentary Labour Party and shadow cabinet have other ideas.
They have been looking at legal ways to keep him of the ballot in the event of another Labour leadership challenge.
Heidi Alexander was first to quit the shadow cabinet Sunday. She published her resignation letter dated 2015 on Twitter.
Since then the usual suspects have been making their self-serving plans plain on Twitter.
Here are a few:
De Piero to Corbyn: Your refusal to engage with issue of freedom of movement means profound disconnect between you and voters who elected me. That was tweeted by Wes Streeting and followed by Just hearing @GloriaDePiero has now quit shadow cabinet.
I'd urge anyone who thinks that our leadership is credible and competent to spend 30 minutes watching this: Jeremy Corbyn The Outsider Vice News. Again from Wes Streeting who is being a busy boy Sunday.
He is not getting it all his way though @wesstreeting I'd urge you to resign. You're going against the membership tweeted a Corbyn supporter.
Others at it include John McTernan who tweeted "Calling the Parliamentary Conservative Party - this is for you" followed by this tweet from Momentum "Show your support for Jeremy with the 'I'm with Corbyn' twibbon."
Another young careerist .@TristramHuntMP: we are in a national crisis and the Labour leader should hold government to account #Murnaghan chose Sky News.
Alastair Campbell opts for "A man who could actually be a good Foreign Secretary sacked by someone who could never be Prime Minister."
Stella Creasey "Most of us in labour worked our socks off for #Remain vote - to see just how others in positions of influence half hearted about it gutting!"
And of course the BBC are as always in the mix "Labour MPs Ian Murray & Lilian Greenwood to quit shadow cabinet, @bbclaurak understands bbc.in/264XBZu."
And within no time Murray resigned life on air on BBC Scotland.
Again some in the Labour Party top ranks feeding the mainstream media snippets that should be private.
Some MPs are being more polite than they often are on Twitter.
For it has to be said that those MPs who complain of maltreatment on Twitter are often good at stirring the pot and antagonising.
Ian Austin retweeted from an alleged activist "Spent yesterday afternoon talking to lifelong Labour voters in my ward. Not a single one felt Labour can win with current leadership."
Check out the Twitter timelines of the usual Bitterite brigade for the latest display of party disloyalty.
The country needs political unity at this time and will never forgive those in Labour intent on ripping it apart at such a crucial stage of the game.
And the latest news is that "Nicola Sturgeon says MSPs at Holyrood could veto Brexit."
The UK is in a terrible mess, politicians are peeing on voters as they play games and the best some in the Labour Party can manage is an internal coup.
They are of course guaranteeing the Tories election success in the event of a snap General Election.
And as I end this report Stephen Kinnock is talking on the BBC and is obviously up to his neck in the coup.
