Op-ed: It looks like plotters within the Labour Party are working toward at least one story a day to undermine the party leader Jeremy Corbyn during the current leadership challenge.
Corbyn is lucky enough to have huge support within the party but not from some of his own MPs and today the tittle tattle comes from that 'other place' the House of Lords.
According to the Guardian "Lady Smith [Labour leader of the House of Lords] said of Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership: ‘If we only rely on people who agree with us, then we won’t win an election.
Well Ms Smith the way some of you are carrying on election defeat is a certainty no matter who you talk to and who leads the party.
Perhaps you all believe that posting spurious allegations across the media will somehow give the electorate confidence in you?
If you are so deluded, a term many of the plotters like to use about Corbyn supporters, heaven help us all.
For some reason the Labour Party has always opted for very public and damaging political spats.
The current Conservative government is in turmoil but you will have to dig deep to find out what is going on there.
To the World they are trying to show a united, all sweetness and light, front.
Having worked on the right-wing principle of united we stand divided we fall for years they will do whatever it takes.
Unlike the Labour Party the Tory's do not feed the mainstream media a diet of divisive tittle tattle to suit.
The unnecessary badly-timed Labour leadership challenge has weeks to play out.
The gloves are off so expect a series of msm reports that are true, fake, fabrication, pure lies, carefully crafted spin and more.
Petty party political stories have already grabbed headlines news indicating sources such as BBC news have their own agenda.
He who pays the piper calls the tune and who with big money has most to gain from ousting Corbyn?

Today's story as it goes in the Guardian is:
Labour’s leader in the House of Lords has said 10 months of Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership has convinced her that despite having the “right values” he cannot persuade voters of his cause nor win a general election.
The Telegraph picked the story up and has opted for:
Angela Smith, Labour's leader in the House of Lords, has abandoned her support for Jeremy Corbyn because she said he had not been involved in key campaigns yet had claimed credit for them.
We have now picked the story up and we say bunkum.
Ms Smith et al are in the process of alientating many long and short term Labour Party supporters.
They appear to think that is a price worth paying to oust Jeremy Corbyn.
Big Bad Labour Party story Sunday involves office space spat
Jeremy Corbyn damned if he does and damned if he does not
