A new rift has opened between the unofficial parliamentary Labour Party leader, Hilary Benn and the head of the student protest group that has taken the party over, Jeremy Corbyn in regard to Corbyn’s idea of holding talks with Daesh.
After Corbyn’s group had discussed it in college refectories up and down the country, Shadow foreign secretary Mr Benn dismissed the idea as a think-tank event. He said: “I don’t think there’s much to negotiate with Daesh about, unless someone’s going to take a different view. There are times where groups like that have to be defeated.”
Comrade Corbyn wanted to oust Benn from his cabinet. The only reason he kept Benn in is that Hillary Benn is popular amongst grown up people. He is one of the few Labour MP’s a significant number of grown ups would consider voting for.
