    If that was a response to my post above yours, you didn't really read what I wrote.

    This internal conflict has been going on for years now within Labour. The problem is Watson and his faction only now have criticism and smears to offer. Even to the point of deliberately briefing against Labour in the last general election and continuing in that vein ever since. This is stopping the party working fully on opposing the government and directly impacting the lives of the poorest and most vulnerable Labour was formed to represent. Watson would not survive a leadership contest and should have followed the example set by Cooper, Benn etc. who are doing the difficult, tough work real politics is about.

    He can't be it is an elected post - deputy leader. That is why he is free to speak out.

    Even if you thought the Panorama programme was reaching a bit, the response of the high command has been catastrophic and looks like its going to get worse. They've actually openly bullied and defamed the whistleblowers who appeared on the programme, it's a scale of ineptness that hasn't been seen before but worse it actually shows the true make up of those who make up the leaders party, a little glimpse of their true soul, breathtaking. Cock and balls on the next election paper I think.

    The Labour Leader does not have the power to dismiss the Labour deputy leader. Also worth bearing in mind the deputy is in a role and not the deputy in the literal sense.

    Is it ridiculous to not tolerate racism?

    What is appalling are the extremists at both ends using this to promote their own political agenda enabling various types of intolerance without a care for the actual people this is affecting. All they do is criticise and provide poisonous rhetoric never explaining how to de escalate, bring people back together and resolve the situation. Instead continually pouring fuel on the fire.

    It's very easy to de-escalate.

    1) Expel anyone who has said racist things, supported others who are racist or excused racism. None of this "Ah but, Israel" nonsense.
    2) Fire the staff who failed to act
    3) Remove the whip and de-select any MP who has done any of the above.
    4) Clear out the "leadership" who have allowed Labour to be dragged into the gutter like this.
    5) Apologise and set up clear rules to ensure this cannot happen again.

    I don’t think you appreciate what you have just suggested and it’s historical context.

    Is that where Seamus Milne models his tactics on?

    There is most likely some attempt to discredit Labour in all these accusations, but that task is made easier when Labour keeps supplying the ammunition.

    As we have seen with this whole furore it is easy to throw accusations around, both those of anti-semitism and an Israeli plot, but much more difficult to prove anything conclusively.

    I await the EHRC investigation and report for a more balanced commentary.
