Blue-tick hack who trashed his credibility supporting Starmer has a go and it doesn’t end well – but your support for this site will really rub salt in
Paul Mason, the ‘left’ journalist who was caught during Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership discussing running the party without him – and who decided to back Keir Starmer to replace Corbyn – launched an attack on Skwawkbox on Friday afternoon, after this site called for Starmer and Angela Rayner to show some integrity in politics by resigning for their own ‘partygate’.
It didn’t go well.
Mason tweeted comparing Skwawkbox to the hard-right Daily Mail, as if pointing out the misdeeds of politicians and calling for a move to restore faith in political decency is the same as the Tories’ factional manoeuvres:
