Hard left journalist turned activist Paul Mason has thrown the Catholic among the pigeons by condemning Rebecca Long-Bailey's views on abortion.  Many on the left had been keen to overlook her Catholic sympathies and she herself had distanced herself from previous remarks adding that politics comes before faith.  However, hothead Mason couldn't let it go.

Long-Bailey has since committed herself to the open letter signed by Mason, but the row was already unleashed and Mason was vilified by many who would have previously been comrades.  Our Twitter account was blocked by Mason a long time ago, but now he's begun blocking those from his own side, including Aaron 'Boring' Bastani.

Labour's new leader won't be announced until April 4, so we have almost two and a half months of fun and games like this as Labour tears itself apart.  Glorious!
