Sarah Champion, who resigned as a shadow minister on 28 June during the Labour coup, has written to Jeremy Corbyn to ask for her job back:
From: Sarah Champion
To: Jeremy Corbyn
Subject: Shadow minister role
I would like to formally retract my resignation and ask to be reinstated to my role as Shadow Home Office minister for preventing abuse and domestic violence with immediate effect.
Will he accept her back into the fold? Guido understands he is minded to say yes…
CONFIRMED: Corbyn accepts her unresignation and reinstates her to the shadow frontbench. LOLabour…
UPDATE: On 29 June Sarah Champion tweeted: “Jeremys position is no longer tenable if we’re to be effective”
I can assure you I’ve not joined any coup, just think Jeremys position is no longer tenable if we’re to be effective https://t.co/EiNhp2KH14

Did she see Owen Smith’s polling and change her mind?
