Former Corbyn speechwriter Alex Nunns sums it up best
The constituency party of Coventry South MP Zarah Sultana, who has been appallingly treated by the party leadership and the Labour right, held its first trigger ballot meeting this evening. It was a romp for the left-winger, with a 20-1 result in her favour.
This will have been a matter of some bitterness to right-wing libel-hack Lee Harpin, who has been criticised for an apparent obsession with seeing the Muslim woman MP ousted – and was a matter of some merriment on the left at his expense.
Harpin, who has tweeted extensively about the prospects for the removal of Ms Sultana and other left-wing MPs, responded to the result by grasping at some kind of deferred gratification, claiming that a source said the real ‘first big test is next Tuesday’.
But others joined in admirably:
No doubt the Labour right, which considers the West Midlands its particular fiefdom, will now be rigging and breaking every rule it can think of to rig the next meeting against her, but for tonight the congratulations belong to Zarah Sultana.
