Professional lefty and supporter of dodgy causes Shami Chakrabarti has refused to deny that she will bolster Jeremy Corbyn’s MP-lite shadow cabinet.
She said that if while on the red benches she can “do a little bit of something to help out [blocking Brexit legislation and generally being insufferable], then I will do my best.”
Shami also said that “there was nothing remotely transactional” about producing the lame ‘whitewash’ report on Labour’s anti-Semitism scandal. Of course not, the nice ermine robe she was rewarded shortly after it was published was a complete coincidence.
This seems to be one of the issues you have when a Leader of the Opposition has run out of democratically elected MPs willing to offer support.
