Lisa Nandy’s attacks on the left only betray her own repulsiveness

Nandy: a mouthpiece for Labour attack lines without any apparent intelligence to filter out the offensive nonsense.

A confrontation between Labour MPs has won an inordinate amount of attention on the social media, considering the failures of one of the participants.

I refer of course to the argument between right-winger Lisa Nandy and left-wing former Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell over their party’s current line of attack adverts – in particular the one accusing Rishi Sunak of wanting child sex offenders to escape prison.

Here’s the relevant part of the discussion on Robert Peston’s ITV show:

Both of them were wrong, in different ways.

Mr McDonnell was mistaken to suggest that Nandy would not make personal attacks – quite clearly, because her response to his reasonable assertion that Labour should not have made an unsupportable personal attack was to make an unsupportable personal attack.

And Nandy was wrong in her entire approach – supporting the advert and attacking Mr McDonnell with the old line about anti-Semitism.

For the record, the manufactured anti-Semitism crisis, in which people like Nandy persuaded much of the country that under Jeremy Corbyn, two-thirds of their party were anti-Semites (in fact, I believe the true figure was found to be fewer than one per cent), was not the worst stain on Labour’s history.

But don’t take my words on it. Here’s Cornish Damo with a detailed breakdown of the incident, the issues, and why Nandy is as vile as she undoubtedly is:

This Writer wonders whether she’s happy now, having done what seems to be her real job – propping up the Tories.

They will get a sympathy bounce because the claims against Rishi Sunak are not supportable, and thinking right-wingers will support them because they will see Labour as divided.
