A report this morning indicates that "more than 40 Labour MPs on Corbyn's front bench and in his shadow ministerial team" have quit.
Does it matter one jot if Momentum successfully retains Corbyn as leader if he does not command the confidence of the country? Of course not. Power often involves compromise. It was a hard lesson for Labour to learn but now apparently forgotten again. If they fluff it again they will have only themselves to blame.
Corbyn must make way for someone who is able to lead the Labour party as an effective Opposition and possibly into Government.
Jeremy Corbyn has lost a confidence vote by 172 votes to 40 with 4 abstentions.
