Why is it that some JC backers are such nasty pieces of work?
One feature that has characterised this LAB leadership campaign has been the sheer nastiness that we have seen on social media. The above Tweet this afternoon is just the latest example.
It seems that female LAB MPs have received more of it and those, like Ruth Smeeth, who happen to be Jewish as well now have special police protection.
This didn’t before Corbyn came on the scene you wonder what has happened to the party that now that this is so prevalent.
Maybe Twitter and other social media have created channels whereby it’s easy to make such attacks and not pay a price.
I fear that it will continue in this manner after Saturday.
