Vox Political on the Unresignation of Sarah Champion

Mike posted up another interesting piece yesterday evening, reporting that Sarah Campion, a former member of Jeremy Corbyn’s shadow cabinet, who had resigned as part of the Blairite coup, has changed her mind. She was formerly in charge of preventing child abuse and domestic violence. Although she is currently on a foreign trip at the moment, she is expected to return to the shadow cabinet.

Mike states, rather magnanimously, that this shows that there were some people on the plotters’ side, who were motivated by more than selfish interests, and have the courage to reverse their decision when they realise that it is wrong. He also states that the fact that Corbyn has shown himself willing to take her back, reflects well on the head of the Labour party. He has shown that he is serious about promoting unity and reconciliation in the Labour party.

Not all of Mike’s readers agree with his positive appraisal of Champion’s character, with some finding her actions purely opportunistic. I think this incident does, however, still reflect very well on Corbyn for the above reasons. I also think that he’s probably far more sincere in his desire to promote unity and harmony than the Blairites. They seem to be motivated purely by spite and vengefulness, with an implacable desire to purge their opponents from any position of power, no matter how conciliatory they may be to them.
