Leaked List undermines Corbyn and lets Cameron of the ropes.
We can only wonder what kind of Allies of Jeremy Corbyn it was that have allegedly drew up a list of which Labour MPs are naughty and nice, listing his own Chief Whip as being 'hostile' to his leadership.
Labour saw a chance to score points on David Cameron who was already on the ropes in yesterdays PMQ's , But the Prime Minister won most of the battle by constantly quoting from the list.
The sheet ranking MPs in five categories, from 'Core', through 'Neutral' to 'Hostile' has been handed to the Daily Mirror
I suppose it could be worse. Only four are deemed hostile and I actually suspect although Tony Blair for example would have have seen less neutrals and a number in the Core group there would have been less neutrals and more in the hostile group.
The same could be said of every Party , with possibly ambition being a bigger factor than disagreements over policy.
But maybe the real question is Who drew up the list? and "Who leaked it.
It clearly has damaged Labour, during a period when the Tories were been vulnerable and some in Labours ranks must be wondering, if there is a deliberate attempt to undermine the Leader from people claiming to be his strongest supporters.
Mind you anyone with a little bit of know how could have drawn up the list and unless the Mirror discloses the source, we are left to wonder whether its a potential hit list of Labour MPs hostile to Corbyn liable to deselection, a mole in the Corbyn ranks there to undermine him and his sources or simply (and I lean to this) a single entity just being a mischief.
