But that attack on Ed Miliband should not have been for public consumption. It ultimately adds more power to the Tories.
When will the current Labour party learn that returning to old style Labour politics of airing every piece of dirty laundry in public is self-destructing?
It may offer the speaker some cold comfort but in the long term will do more damage than good.
In early May Chuka Umunna announced that he would join the Labour leadership race only to publicly withdraw days later.
Then Tristam Hunt sounding like a man with an axe to grind announced he would not be joining the race but instead would throw his political support behind Liz Kendall; seems Mr Hunt cannot get the support needed to be nominated himself.
But why did he need to make a public announcement at all? Is it more about political ambitions and massaging egos than what is the best for the party and its voters?
As some in the upper ranks of the Labour party attack ED Miliband and his record as leader of the party they portray themselves as first-class hypocrites and pure political animals.
Keeping quite in the run up to the election and then attacking the man they have been touting and promoting for election success does little for their reputations as decent human beings or electable representatives.
Jeremy Corbyn is the latest candidate to join the Labour party leader's race and he looks set to be a real contender. As a no nonsense anti-austerity politician he could be the late favourite but will that simply be with hard-line Labour supporters, floating voters or both?
Corbyn will need to gain the necessary amount of support to be nominated and that may prove tricky.
But if the British Tories inflict the amount of austerity they have 'promised' on the general public of the UK an anti-austerity party leader may be a godsend.
However Labour are aiming for a new leader that can attract voters back from newer parties such as the SNP, Greens, Ukip and others; that means even wanting floating Tory voters to offer support.
But in the end Labour face many tough challenges.
In trying to have mass appeal they may lose their left-leaning political identity and alienate many traditional Labour voters.
Times change though and politicians have to get with the program as much as any of us.
But the UK has enough right, extreme right, right of centre and centre political parties already and there is a need for an honest left of politics party.
Can Labour be that party and still be electable?
In the end without election success Labour is doomed and the population is destined for more Tory 'help the rich stuff the poor' politics. While Labour politicians procrastinate the Tories are having a field day in the Commons.
Is time for real change in the form of Jeremy Corbyn?
Who is Jeremy Corbyn?
