But in the days of the other leader with JC as his initials, workers did not have the backing of thousands of lefties who work as a massive bloc who create division and controvertial decisions when the average workers do not agree with "the Party line". I think that the present JC has the support of his equally mad disrupters and far left Union leaders. Probably most Labour supporters are against the actions of the JC Few, but have no way of influencing possible changes in the direction the party is going. Corbyn may well be a highly educated thinker, but not a practical or flexible man who would listen to, never mind consider, the wishes of the majority of his own party. The Reds in the east must be laughing at the antics of JC/2 and his few, to the extent that the commies in Russia hope this comedy continues. Roll on the next revolution... That is me bound for the Russian version of hell....

Watching his interview on Marr on Sunday I was amazed at how he was portraying himself ,even his posture was so laid back ,me thinks he thought he was the chosen one . I suppose after so many years as a protesting back bench MP now that a lot of £3 members voted for him that his time has come ,BUT you have to lead not be a protester ,give the people/party activists something worthwhile to follow,new ideas not dredge up far left crap that not got any previlance in today's modern world

A deluded Leftie, Corbyn is "yesterday's man" with a thick skin who will forever be remembered as the one who not only split the Labour Party, but also failed to provide any credible  Opposition. Trouble is,  Angela Eagle isn't much better (also "bats for the other side" !) , the LibDums have failed miserably to mount any effort whatsoever to fill the vacuum created by the maelstrom in current British politics, whilst the Tory's are taking far too long with the election of the new Leader / PM - why is it September before the (inevitable ?) announcement is made ? Hillary Benn or David Miliband are the only one's I can see with the ability to bring Labour back from the abyss to mount any sort of Opposition - any chance of that happening ? Interesting times ahead methinks ! John (JKW)

JKW, As the undertaker in Dads Army kept saying, "we're doomed, we're all doomed, I tell ye" should be the motto for the present Labour Party, which at the rate they operate means at least a century..... BUT I do agree with your idea that Benn and/or Miliband are the only rational people to replace Corbyn (the Has Bin) -the labour way of saying "been". It is about time the leading contenders to replace Corbyn should now use their powers of persuasion to replace the present encumbant.....Even Mickey Mouse would be a better leader than Corbyn, or even the Muppets.  Tom

I'm still not sure he won't stay in office if he is allowed to go on the ballot paper automatically as the incumbent leader. Ms Eagle is the least uninspiring challenger anyone could come up with and listening to the many Party members decrying the whole process and castigating the Labour PLP I would not be at all surprised if he is not usurped. That in itself might lead to a major split in the Labour Party but there again I'm not sure there are enough stout hearted MPs with enough courage and conviction to do that, look what happened to the last lot, the now infamous "gang of four" who formed the SDP. My head tells me common  sense will prevail and Corbyn will go, my heart tells me differently!

one should remember that the long term objective is to get the labour party back into power, this is not feasible with the bearded wonder at the helm, the batswoman is only a stalking horse to get shut of JC. In the general election it is the voters, not the party members who elect the government. The media are prattling on about 100,000 extra new members in the last few weeks, and are assuming that they are all JC supporters, it will be interesting to see if this is the case. Now that Andrea Leadsom   has stood down this leaves the way open for  Theresa May to step up to the plate, I don't hold much hope for the country forbye the fact she has been the longest serving home secretary for years, she says that she is the best equipped person for the job. Hmm, immigration failed,
