Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The VSPs hate him - my VSP friends on Facebook are looking forward to his departure, and I really can't tell why. It seems to be one of those VSP litmus tests.

Very Serious People??

They hate him because he is opposed to Blairite corporatism. Which is their very reason to be in the Labour party (as opposed to the Tories, their more natural home)

Why? Because he shows up the government as grifters. He doesn't play the game, therefore they can't attack him on the usual battlefield.
So they make shit up and their buddies in the MSM throw it at the wall and try make it stick...
