Just after last year’s General Election, as ‘centrists’ and the Establishment reeled at Labour’s huge ‘surprise’ surge – though we and others said all along it would happen – the SKWAWKBOX pointed out six ‘desperation tactics‘ Labour insiders had predicted that the Labour right would use to try to undermine the Corbyn-led, continuing impetus toward government.
All six were duly used.
In the wake of Owen Smith’s sacking for breaking Shadow Cabinet ‘collective responsibility’, as centrists complained of a purge (of a single person), social media users took centrists to task for hypocrisy and identified what they believe are the motives for the behaviour of so-called ‘moderates’ and its timing.
And a few people remembered this blog’s prediction and pointed out its relevance to the current local election campaign period:

Many Labour supporters clearly believe the behaviour of Labour ‘moderates’ now is similarly intended to damage Labour’s expected dominance in this May’s local elections.
