Few MPs at last night’s ‘PLP’ meeting outraged that Corbyn spent more time on environment than on Brexit
A handful of Labour MPs gave away just how deeply they are embedded in their own ‘bubble’ last night when they reacted with outrage to the fact that Jeremy Corbyn prioritised climate change during Monday’s meeting of the ‘PLP’ – the parliamentary Labour party.
Politics Home’s Kevin Schofield tweeted the news, apparently without irony and without comment on the appropriateness of such a response.
But others didn’t miss the obvious: that climate change is a far more important topic than the Brexit obsession of the ‘Westminster bubble’.
One Labour figure retorted:
There are no MPs on a dead planet.
Others – hundreds of them – responded on social media:
The exaggeration of the anonymous MP’s ‘disbelief in the room’ also speaks volumes of the inflated sense of importance on the part of the small but vocal band of MPs who never miss an opportunity to attack Corbyn and his team.
Could anything more clearly demonstrate the wilful delusion – and monomaniacal focus on undermining their party’s leadership – of the thankfully dwindling cadre of hardcore right-wingers in the Labour Party?
