Territorial, Indeed

I never understood why anyone other than Clive Lewis, who did sterling work for Jeremy Corbyn's Leadership campaign, was made Shadow Defence Secretary in the first place.

Even before the recent event that made his position morally untenable, Michael Fallon was a lifelong political apparatchik.

More broadly, Labour combat veterans always disconcert the many of the other side who parade the regimental ties of their long ago Short Service Commissions.

One who had arrived at the right views on the issues themselves, unlike the frankly entryist Dan Jarvis, will drive them up the wall.
