#SaveJez: Get Behind the Leader!

save+jezGuido is very alarmed that senior Labour MPs are now openly calling for Jeremy Corbyn’s resignation, including ex-minister John Spellar. Speaking to Radio 5 Live about the cabinet ministers who support Syrian intervention, Spellar said “they should not resign…if anyone should resign after this incident it should be Jeremy Corbyn.” Spellar isn’t the only one baying for Corbyn’s blood however, another ex-minister Fiona Mactaggart told BBC Radio Berkshire that Corbyn’s leadership was “weak” and “unsustainable”. When asked whether Jeremy Corbyn should quit she replied:

“I think that would be a sensible strategy because I think that the division at the moment is causing real problems.”

It is in the light of such treacherous disunity that Guido is calling on comrades in Momentum and elsewhere to ensure that Jeremy Corbyn retains his rightful place as leader of the opposition. Isn’t that what socialism’s all about? The only time we want to hear someone tell Corbyn to “go” is if it’s sung in Spanish to the tune of the the Gypsy Kings’ “Bambeleo”…

Quote of the Day

Stephen Bush writing in the New Statesman‘s morning briefing…

“The terrifying truth is that the Opposition is too divided – within the parliamentary party, within the trades unions, within the Shadow Cabinet and even within the leader’s office – to be anything other than a veto player as far as Brexit goes, and the party’s whole gambit is really about trying to make that weakness look like a strength. Keir Starmer saying that Labour is “increasingly likely” to vote down the deal is simply a reflection of the fact that the one thing the Labour party will be able to agree on as far as Brexit goes is that Theresa May’s deal is no good.”
