Reading about the Chris Williamson controversy, and can't help thinking:
1. Why did Williamson think acting like a racist would make him popular with Corbyn?
2. Why did it (seemingly) work?
3. Why did Keith Vaz think readmitting an antisemite would make him popular with Corbym?
You can answer 1 and 3 by saying 'They thought Corbyn would like it, but they were wrong'. That doesn't work for 2.
