Time to grow up - and Step Up

Chi Onwurah MP has moaned that she had her role jiggled around a bit after the chicken coup started, and was then left to get on with her job by herself with no help from the leader's office. 

Owen Smith has made it central to his campaign that he was left alone to do his new job taking on the DWP with no help from the leader's office - he also claims for himself the successes in turning around Tory legislation (largely thanks to labour lords, I thought?) but says in the same breath this is a failure of Corbyn's. 

A pattern is starting to emerge. People who were parachuted in to safe seats by the previous Labour administrations are expected to step up and do a real job on their own initiative like a proper grownup - and when no-one from central office turns up to do their job for them they claim racism, sexism, incompetence, any damn thing to cover up their panic at having to do something more than wear a shiny suit and nod through Tory policy.

Not good enough. And we can see through this.
