Blair didn't sack Jezza for outright opposition. Many times repeated.

It's the action of a small-minded man. Or his puppet masters.

Leaders with thumping majorities are in a position tolerate party awkward squad. And you don’t get many dissenters of importance when you’re a winner.

Wasn’t the comparison not to Hitler/Nazis as in “these guys are Nazis” but to the bunker mentality as in the book/film Bunker?

Still, while you could argue it’s justified/poor taste, it’s also pretty bloody hypocritical given how JC and friends always demand the benefit of the doubt when they start liking dodgy murals or defending people’s right to ‘strongly criticise’ Israel and so on.

And of course, yet again it shows they can move bloody quick when they fancy it...

Yes it was, which was my point about a common figure of speech.

Manufactured outrage from the 'incestuously tight little McCluskeyite group who run Corbyn’s office' (P. Toynbee)

Trying to claim this was done in the name of Jewish staffers is a new low.
Seumus Milne will appear in one of those amusing books that chart history's notable inept losers like the man from Decca who turned the Beatles. Milne the political strategist who always made the wrong call.

But first comes actually winning an election. The strong sense is that McDonnell, along with much of the shadow cabinet, is infuriated by everything that gets in the way of that. Imagine the despair of losing an election to Boris Johnson and facing another five years of social destruction. Day after day it gets clearer that Corbyn is the chief obstacle: weak, vacillating, glum and scoring the lowest ever poll ratings for an opposition leader as he fails to grasp the severity of Labour’s crisis over antisemitism and Brexit.
Jeremy Corbyn’s weak leadership betrays those Labour would lift from poverty
