The Labour Party will be fighting itself today.
Ostensibly the issue is Gaza.
Actually, the issue is that the Labour leadership think that they cannot cooperate with the SNP on any issue, and so they would rather vote against a ceasefire in Gaza rather than admit that the SNP were right to call for one before they did.
This is not just pathetic. It shows three other things.
The first is that labour remains totally tribal in its thinking - which is of absolutely no benefit to anyone in the UK. We live in a vastly more nuanced world than that. It's time labour admitted that fact. It is possible for people outside Labour to be right.
Second, it shows them as irrational. I watched Yvette Cooper squirm on this issue in an interview at the weekend and her tortuous language only revealed that fact.
Third, it shows that they care more about fighting the SNP than they do about people in Gaza. And that is unforgivable.
It really is time that this lot grew up. We need grown-ups in government and they very clearly have not reached that low bar as yet.
