Yet again, Corbyn is right and his rebellious backbenchers are wrong.
Not only that, but by making a song and dance about it in public they are courting disciplinary action. Corbyn has made it clear that such behaviour is not acceptable.
Austin in particular deserves to be flung into the political wilderness for his arse-headed tweets, which say more about him than his party leader.
Challenged by a fellow Labour member as to why he thinks it is acceptable to fight terror with terror instead of relying on international justice, he responded sarcastically that the other gentleman was “volunteering to round up the posse and head to Syria to arrest the rest of them. Please form an orderly queue.”
After such a vile display, that’s exactly what Ian Austin can do. He and any like-minded friends can form an orderly queue to leave politics for good.
Jeremy Corbyn is facing a backlash from his own Labour MPs after saying it would have been “far better” if the Isis executioner Jihadi John had been tried in court rather than killed by a US drone strike.
Ian Austin and John Woodcock welcomed the news that Mohammed Emwazi was suspected dead after an air strike targeted him on Thursday night and rounded on their leader’s critical response.
Mr Austin took to Twitter to mock Mr Corbyn’s suggestion that Mr Emwazi should have been put on trial, while Mr Woodcock said the suspected killing of the British militant “sends a clear message”.
Mr Woodcock, who chairs the internal Labour party defence committee, also criticised those opposed to Britain bombing Isis targets in Syria – a position held by Mr Corbyn.
