On the one hand, this instant descent into self-righteous infighting is only contributing to my despair at the state of the Labour party, but it's still thread worthy I think. Short version: Recently ousted Labour MP Caroline Flint, who made a name for herself as a pro-Brexit Labour rebel in the aftermath of the referendum (she herself voted Remain, but her constituency was Leave heavy) accuses likely Labour leader candidate Emily Thornberry of calling her constituents 'stupid'. Emily issues a flat denial, and when Caroline refuses to back down, she unleashes the lawyers When pressed on GMB, Caroline gets a bit shifty and refuses to directly repeat the charge. Old Flinty's always struck me as a right cow, so until she shows some receipts I'm Team Thornberry on this one. Love her passive aggressive tones in that video. "You can't just make up shit about me!"
