Tom Watson backstabs every leader he wants the job himself

The Telegraph in 2009 reported:

Tom Watson to resign from Government

Mr Watson is set to stand down from the Government when Mr Brown's reshuffle takes place.

His departure is unexpected and is a further blow to the Prime Minister on a day when it became clear that Jacqui Smith, the Home Secretary, had told Mr Brown that she also wanted to stand down at the reshuffle.

Mr Watson was no stranger to controversy. He resigned as a junior defence minister in September 2006 as part of a concerted effort to force Tony Blair from office.

Mr Blair was furious at Mr Watson’s central role in organising a letter signed by other key allies of Mr Brown demanding Mr Blair indicated when he was going to stand down. Mr Watson achieved that aim and Mr Blair was forced to say he would be gone from Number 10 within a year – opening the way for Mr Brown to take over.

A former union fixer, Mr Watson was key figure in Mr Brown’s inner circle. But he was dragged into the Damian McBride affair – although he was not copied into the email sent by Mr Brown’s spin doctor.

It seems Tom Watson stabs every leader (Not just Corbyn) in the back he's obviously after the job himself, he is totally in it for himself.
