The BBC 24-hour Vacuous Dribble Channel had John McDonnell on to talk about the Hartlepool by-election result. It was very much a case of a Corbynite spekang his branes. Reading between the lines it was all Starmer's fault. A proper leader such as St Jeremy would never have let the Tories win. He waffled on for about 10 minutes. Nearly all of it was absolutely nothing to do with the question he was asked, but while he was busy running-down the Party he's a member of, and it's leader, the BBC were quite happy to let him ramble on.
