In July, the SKWAWKBOX predicted that centrists were lining up behind the idea of a ‘government of national unity’ in a desperate attempt to prevent a Corbyn-led Labour government.
The very next day, deputy Labour leader and so-called ‘moderate’ Tom Watson told a bemused television interviewer that he considered it Labour’s job to prevent the Tory government from ‘bringing itself down’:
