According to the mainstream media and some Labour MPs the Labour Party is in the grip of bullies, entryists, former and exisiting "Trots" and more with all reportedly supporting Jeremy Corbyn.
Those supporting most other Labour MPs are allegedly the exact opposite. I say most as there have been similar accusations against Corbyn's long standing colleague and friend John McDonnell.
There are reports of party suspensions; individual members and in at least one case a whole Constituency Labour Party or CLP suspended this week.
Labour has gone into lockdown as various MPs work hard to undermine Jeremy Corbyn and remove him from office rather than undertaking their paid work.
Whether Corbyn is re-elected or not he is toast as far as they are concerned.
They will continue to work to rule and work on removing him as party leader no matter how long it takes.
Currently the Labour Party has a whiff of McCarthyism about it.
Social media accounts are being trawled for any excuse to remove certain members from the party.
Earlier in the year it was accusations of anti-semitism but now it is allegations of bullying.
But what is bullying and intimidation?
PLP dissenters have shown themselves to be bullies time and again this year. When they chanted resign at Corbyn in the House of Commons it was workplace bullying pure and simple.
But though they dish it out they cannot take it as they say.
This report from April, and not April's Fool Day, was perhaps a sign of things to follow:
New rules governing the conduct of Labour party members in South Tyneside have been branded as “laughable” by political opponents.
For me "Compliance Unit" has a ring of Big Brother about it.
Bullying can sometimes be experienced at any age in life. It is wrong and unacceptable.
But suspension from the party for rolling your eyes in a political meeting when passions can run high and tempers fray is in my opinion insane.
South Shields is in the North of England. People in the North of England often have tough lives.
I can only imagine their response to the Labour letter.
