Corbyn: Labour Purge “Absolutely” Could Happen mdi-fullscreen

Back in August, Team Corbyn told the Staggers he was opposed to mandatory reselection, the policy of enabling his Corbynista supporters to take out moderate MPs. They vowed:

“he will not introduce mandatory reselection if elected and will not not endorse moves to “depose sitting MPs””

Now he is leader, Corbyn isn’t exactly committing to stopping left-wingers from unseating centrist candidates:

“Corbyn has spoken out against mandatory reselection, the mechanism that some on the left of Labour hope to deploy to unseat right-leaning MPs, but he concedes that it would “absolutely” become “party rules” if activists voted in favour of the process at conference.”

Well that’s going to go down like a cup of cold sick among the parliamentary Labour party…
