It's the sheer brazen hypocrisy of the man that really gets my goat . The whole "Don't blame me, guv - I'm just an ordinary, honest jobbing journalist doing my job" crap. He isn't. He is a fully paid-up, disruptive, card-carrying Trot. His open hostility to the current Labour leadership is now well beyond a joke. Hardly a day goes by without him having a pop at Keir Starmer for whatever reason he can find. His latest, thoroughly disingenuous piece excoriates Starmer for not having an instant, detailed, costed, "oven-ready" (he didn't actually use the Boris-ism but he may as well have done) alternative three years away from the election is a case in point. https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfr ... mer-tories
It's only recently that I discovered that his parents got together when they were both members of Militant tendency back in the 1980s (and presumably expelled from the Labour Party under Kinnock's initiative). It may explain a lot about young Squealer's thinking. He'll never be happy with Starmer, because he isn't Jeremy Corbyn or John McDonnell (Squealer used to work for McDonnell and has an abiding affection for him. He is at least correct in his assessment that McDonnell is several country miles more capable and intelligent than the eejit Corbyn).
Jones is - let's just say it bluntly - an enemy of the Labour Party. At the moment, he is helping the Tories, not Labour, as all Trots tend to do.
