At a time when the country is facing its biggest political crisis in a generation, we should have a united Labour party to hold the government to account as it negotiates a withdrawal from the EU. Instead, we have self-obsessed MPs who are so far removed from the lives of ordinary people that they feel this is the right time to play political games. There could be no worse time.
Jeremy Corbyn has a huge mandate from Labour party members having won a stunning 60% of first preference votes in the leadership election just last September. At best, the organised coup against him is undemocratic. At worst, it is outright treachery.
