It's interesting there are two groups of followers on social media whose default position is to revert to attacking an old enemy when faced with difficult questions.

Corbynites resort to attacking Tony Blair.
Trump fans resort to attacking Hilary Clinton.

I've never seen anyone else do it. There are a few Brexiters who do it to different individuals (Barnier, Tusk, Juncker, Cameron, Corbyn, Khan) but never the same, unifying figure.

I've not seen people who support Corbyn do that as some knee jerk reaction, perhaps only when he's criticised for doing something by the sorts of people who have previously let the same behaviour fly under Blair.

Such as? I genuinely can't think of anything Corbyn does which Blair did/got away with?

I have not seen one single, solitary syllable of counter-argument to Tony Blair's intervention on Brexit. Nothing. Zilch. Nada. Nichts.

Plenty of crude, hysterical and aggressive ad hominem attacks, sure.

"Despises the will of the people, yesterday's man, he shagged Egwina, cones hotline, ERM." Major was PM at a dangerous time that could have seen Europe fall apart instead he lead the country from the front with Kohl and Mitterand in overseeing the transition of former Warsaw Pact countries. Thatcher's inability to see the new landscape is what led to her downfall. His domestic policies sucked.
