As Corbyn considered changes to his cabinet the knives were quickly out. He was attacked for taking his time over the reshuffle but his attackers would have done the same if he acted with speed.
He was accused of shuffling his opposition cabinet too soon after selecting it in September but he was elected party leader September 12, 2015, and was dealt a short hand. His leadership race partners Liz Kendall and Yvette Cooper took themselves to the backbenches and refused to serve alongside Corbyn. That left many Labour supporters wondering if they really had the Labour party in their hearts or were self-serving politicians.
The reshuffle in many ways was engineered in, and by, the media with a little help from one or two other self-serving Labour politicians feeding the press; this helped cause the apparent delay.
So we had:
The third person to resign was Stephen Doughty and he did this live on BBC TV with a little help from the Beeb's staff.
This has led to anger.
BBC News is supposed to be an independent news channel not working for the government. It denies collusion and tries to explain away its actions as 'journalistic' but official complaints have been made.
The BBC in a way is acting suicidal as the Tory government wants to privatise it and will now have another reason to do so.
But if you are a Labour supporter surely the bulk of your anger is directed at Stephen Doughty who has shown as much allegiance to the Labour Party as David Cameron would. Another quitter, Jonathon Reynolds, made sure his resignation letter to Jeremy Corbyn was published in another Tory rag, the Telegraph.
There was lot of good work by Labour and Mr Corbyn this week but it was overshadowed by negative press regarding the opposition Cabinet reshuffle.
The Commons' vote on Syria
The mainstream media and the Tories are trying to run the show and in effect spitting on British democracy.
The Commons' debate on Syria was held on the day before a by election in Oldham West and Royton. A full day’s debate kept the House busy but if the Tories thought it would result in an election defeat for Mr Corbyn and Labour they were wrong.
But what was the rush for the debate and vote?
The UK was quick to launch a couple of attacks in Syria, post-debate and vote, which were televised on Sky News and the BBC, but then nothing.
Was the timing more about the Oldham election?
The problem with playing dirty
For the Tories the problem is their record of playing dirty.
Dirty tricks dogged the 2015 General Election and brought home Tory election victory.
Mr Corbyn faces an uphill struggle to keep support in the run up to the next election scheduled for 2020 with so many enemies eager to attack.
He and the Labour Party do not need dirty tricks from within.
If Corbyn's enemies within managed to oust him as leader the party would lose many supporters including this writer who did not vote for him but respects the fact he was democratically elected.
