Op-ed; Labour party members have been under tight scrutiny from the upper echelons of the party since Jeremy Corbyn was elected party leader. Supported by some of its own MPs creating division has appeared at times to be the order of the day.
But now with a general election looking likely to be scheduled for June 8 is the time for unity.
However it is hard to ignore and fail to respond to one bitter self-serving Labour MP John Woodcock.
Mr Woodcock is no stranger to acting the petulant child. He may or may not serve his constituents well but he is now failing the party, its members and its voters around the UK.
As the election was called Mr Woodcock put in place what looks like an existing plan to undermine the party, its leader Jeremy Corbyn and us all.

He has acted like the very worst kind of MP a self-servative usually a term reserved for a Conservative MP.
Calling Mr Woodcock what he has now shown himself to be, a traitor, could result in the expulsion or suspension of a party member but how else can this Yorkshire woman call a spade a spade?
In politics timing is everything and Mr Woodcock timed his work for the government to perfection. The problem is he is not a Tory MP or is he?
Woodcock could yet "cross the floor" and join the Tory party or opt to stand as an independent. The footage and its wide-scale reporting in right-wing sections of the mainstream media includes a veiled threat.
Well John if you are about to quit or switch to your true political party or whatever please get on with it.
People around the country need real political change. They have more to worry about than an MP with an over-inflated ego playing politics so close to a snap election.
Labour Party supporters and voters want real change and the party's main pledges will be a great start. If you cannot see that how can you call yourself Labour?
In the final analysis "Hiding behind working for his constituents Mr Woodcock is giving the Tories a helping hand."
To quote another Bitterite or was it David Cameron "for god's sake man go now."
All things Corbyn
