The pre-Corbyn Labour Party, which has been out in force on the floor of the House of Commons this week, was as bankrupt morally as it was electorally. Only 18 MPs voted against Theresa May's 2014 Immigration Act, which has caused the scandal over the Windrush Generation. Ignore anything that any of the rest might now say about Syria or about anti-Semitism. By what authority do they presume to speak?
But those 18 included David Lammy, Diane Abbott, John McDonnell and Jeremy Corbyn. It has been clear for some time that Lammy was planning another bid for the position of Mayor of London. Good luck to him, say I. If he won that position, then even I might start to see the point of it.
