What shameless hypocrites are the numerous abstentionist Labour MPs attacking George Osborne in the House, on the airwaves, on Twitter, and elsewhere.
If any of them had been Leader, then even abstention would have been a mercy.
Rachel Reeves, for example, consistently attacked Iain Duncan Smith for not going far enough.
And Yvette Cooper started all this trouble in the first place. Too little cannot possibly be heard from her.
