Provocations likely to continue over next few weeks. Labour supporters should ignore
A few Labour MPs intend to spend the next few weeks attempting to provoke reactions from Labour supporters in any way they can. Their allies in the media will do all they can to amplify.
It’s a scrabble for relevance, but even more those MPs fear that with Tory splits intensifying as their leadership contest progresses and Labour strengthened by the Peterborough by-election victory, Jeremy Corbyn and the party under him will benefit in polls and voter perception.
To prevent that, they’ll try any tactic to bait for a reaction. Engaging will give them what they’re looking for. Ignoring them – and focusing on Labour’s positive messages – won’t.
