Jeremy Corbyn has spoken about the splinter-sized group of MPs who are in the process of whingeing and wittering their way out of the Labour Party.
I am disappointed that these MPs have felt unable to continue to work together for the Labour policies that inspired millions at the last election and saw us increase our vote by the largest share since 1945.
Labour won people over on a programme for the many not the few – redistributing wealth and power, taking vital resources into public ownership, investing in every region and nation, and tackling climate change.
The Conservative Government is bungling Brexit, while Labour has set out a unifying and credible alternative plan. When millions are facing the misery of Universal Credit, rising crime, homelessness and poverty, now more than ever is the time to bring people together to build a better future for us all.
While claiming to put country before party, this tiny group is putting ego before the wellbeing of millions.
Local members in their constituencies, who will miss the leavers like toothache and in many cases had already voted no confidence in them or wanted to, will already be preparing to select their replacements.
