I’ve been mobbed by Labour MPs who don’t understand why a) @jeremycorbyn has delayed their ability to regain momentum against surging LibDems and Greens by delaying for at least a fortnight a decision to adopt a referendum-and-remain position. They regard as comic his riposte...
in shadow cabinet to @EmilyThornberry that he “needs time to bring the movement with him” - which they interpret as “@LenMcCluskey won’t let me move”. And b) why @jeremycorbyn has started the process of reselecting Labour candidates, which is forcing many of them to return...
to their constituencies to save themselves from deselection rather than fighting a disunited Tory Party. One said to me: “this is institutional self-harm of monstrous proportions”. As I understand it Thornberry warned Corbyn that - just like his foot-dragging on adopting...
the IHRA antisemitism position - if he does eventually sign Labour up to campaign for a referendum in all circumstances and to stay in the EU, by that late stage voters would no longer believe he and the party actually mean it.
