Bombs Away

As we all know, MPs last night voted for airstrikes in Syria, but even before the vote was passed, Labour MPs who backed the governments motion had abuse hurled at them from their own side.

Stella Creasy, MP for Walthamstow, was trolled by misogynistic, sad trolls, who cannot accept that we live in a democracy, which means not everyone within the same party, necessarily have the same views on everything.

Hilary Benn, who gave the most impassioned speech of the debate before the vote, has also had abuse hurled at him, one of the abusers was ex-SNP leader Alex Salmond, who dared use Benn's fathers legacy against him.

But the abuse wasn't just from other MPs or the electorate, it was from Corbyn himself, who tried to intimidate his MPs into voting against the government by threatening deselection if they defied him.

This from a man who has spent the last 30 plus years rebelling against every single Labour leader up until he had been voted in as the new leader after Ed Miliband.

The left has shown it's ugly head again, the abuse they've dished out is nothing short of sad, and unsightly.

By all means, disagree, argue, debate, get passionate, but hurling abuse like you're throwing confetti at a wedding is pathetic.
