I suspect Starmer is in the firing line of the cult. For no other reason than his competence reflects badly on you-know-who.
Also because he appears to be a leader in waiting. And there can be no alternatives, because if you have an alternative you inevitably have to measure the incumbent against them and consider who would do the better job.
Therefore he has to be marked as 'unsuitable' for some trivial reason so then, when the cry goes up 'Well if you don't like Corbyn suggest someone else or stop criticising' he can be dismissed if put forward, and magic grandpa can go on as the only possible person on earth who is suitable to lead labour despite no one giving a shit about him or rating his leadership skills prior to his accidental elevation.
