Rift within Labour Widens

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.

    What are Benn’s differences with Corbyn on domestic issues? His speech on the necessity of airstrikes against ISIS was really a magnificent defense of internationalism but as an American I know nothing about him or where he fits in to the Labour Party generally.

      He is considerably more sensible than Corbyn

        Obviously! I was hoping for some information or quality reading material. I don’t have hours and hours to spend sorting through the worldwide web and trying to make heads and tails of competing claims and sources so I was hoping you might be able to provide some guidance on where to start looking.
