It’s not often that the SKWAWKBOX congratulates Andrew Neil. Most recently, we’ve been critical of his handling of Haringey council leader Claire Kober’s uninvestigated – and for that matter, unreported to the Labour Party – allegations of bullying and sexism, especially when she herself has been accused of bullying and has admitted preparing ‘dossiers’ against left-wing prospective candidates for Haringey council.
Judging by his reaction on Twitter, Mr Neil was less than happy.
However, it seems that Mr Neil agrees with us that recent smears by Tory front-benchers against Jeremy Corbyn have been beyond the pale – as they prompted him to ‘do a Paxman’ on Wednesday on a hapless Tory minister during the BBC’s Daily Politics programme:

The Tories and their media allies have allowed their desperation at Corbyn’s continued popularity – their own internal polling recently put Labour twelve points ahead – to push them into descending to frankly ridiculous depths to try to smear him.
It’s all unravelling – and now they’re bleating because Corbyn has warned them that change is coming, as he intends to hold the press barons to account for their behaviour and their misleading of the public once he’s in Downing Street.
Their ‘outrageous smear’ will win them little sympathy.
