Well I suppose we should be thankful for small mercies. At least the Labour leader, however much he feet drags, appears to be more aware of the problem than Len McCluskey. Eevery so often there is a prominent figure on the fringes of the Labour Party with more influence than they should have, and with a higher opinion of themselves than others have of them. There was Harold Laski in the 1940s and Clive Jenkins in the 1970s and 1980s, perhaps, now that Corbyn has made clear that he publicly disagrees with the Unite official, McCluskey should recall to himself the advice Clement Attlee gave Harold Laski, "A period of silence on your part will be welcome!"
