Firstly, can I just say that you really need to research into John McTernan's CV.
He is the unsung hero behind a catalogue of national and international Labour disasters.
Starting with Blair of course but most heart breaking for me, contributing to the loss of Julia Gillard to the odious Paul Rudd and her subsequent retirement from Australian Politics.
Then he started writing for 'The Scotsman' right before we lost that entire nation in the last election.
That said why oh why is he trotted out to bleat on and try to harness the opinions of the current PLP.
Have they no opinion themselves, no original thought or as it appears backbone??
Thank Goodness he was soundly belittled by a Momentum guy Cllr Sam Tarry on channel 4 news.
McTernan was trying to defend Tom Watson's earlier comments on us being Trotsky entryists manipulating true labour supporters.
Again where was Watson himself???
But 'underneath' the headlines of infiltration was something much darker that barely got a second mention.
TW stated that he would also be in favour of this PLP being endowed with MORE power to elect its own shadow cabinet???
McTernan went on to say, presumably as TOm Watson's spokesperson, that Jeremy Corbyn could no longer be allowed to govern the way he had, allowing John McDonnell to be so dismissive and derisive of PLP.
That would be rewarding them for treachery.
Are they drunk???
At least we have a glimpse of what they want and it's a non starter.
JMcD is our economic strategy every bit as much as JC is our leader.
It's 2 for 1 deal.
You buy one you get one free.
NON negotiable PLP.
What else you got??
And you haven't even had the wherewithal to ask direct but thru some Blairite never was let alone has been.
Shame on you!
You are losing credibility by the nano-second.
