Another day and morning of criticism around Labour’s decision to abstain on the second reading of the Welfare Bill. Some of it around discipline and collegiality; Harman’s mandate is 9 years old, two elections ago. She has no more right to interpret the result than I do. Her brutal use of the Leader’s authority and power, in attempting to show that Labour ‘gets it’ on welfare is morally vacant and strategically inept. It’s also just asking for rule changes to re-establish the accountability of the PLP and Leadership to the Party membership.
