    I voted for Corbyn. I don't think he has covered himself in glory over the past few months and was virtually absent on the eu debate. This has possibly cost a lot of remain votes. His time is up. He should go. Give the party time to elect a leader and sort themselves out before the next election.

    Wouldn't surprise me at all if the Blairites make an attempt to oust Corbyn with a potential GE in mind. David Milliband ?

    Corbyn is a principled man with some good ideas. But he doesn't have the skills to lead Labour.

    He's not an effective Opposition leader and I think Labour are unelectable with him in charge

    Apparently he's facing a call to resign. Because this is such a perfect time to do this guys, I mean the Tories are on the ropes, the UK is a quagmire of unemployed austerity struck anti-immigration voters.

    Yep, an articulate urban chap like him is bound to hoover up all the votes in depressed northern heartlands that are leaning UKIP.

    Blairites are that stupid, aren't they?

    I liked corbyn, hated Blair but rubbershoes has a point.
    With Tories in turmoil, labour should be going for the jugular, but can they, will they?

    Corbyn has kept himself at arms length to much of the tory driven pantomime and not got involved in too much hyperbole. Was this part of a long to exploit a result either way ? I have heard this from a couple of labourites today, suggesting he is clever strategic man.

    Not convinced myself

    If Labour cannot gain any advantage out of this & quickly with or without Corbyn in charge then they are certainly fucked.

    Already hapening, but they are fucked and lined up with the Tories and other establishment types. All depends what the Group around Watson decide to do.

    I think he just likes to keep himself at arms length full stop.

    They'd have to find a safe seat for DM first.

    Maybe the Blairites will blot their copybook so badly they'll hand JC a handy stick to beat them with?

    I love how Labour areas voting in ways that are in line with Corbyn's long held beliefs are evidence how out of touch he is.

    How can they gain advantage with a working class clearly at odds with them over the biggest issue in decades?

    ViolentPanda Hardly getting over it.

    I think that if you believe that, you're so politically-naive that you aren't old enough to vote. That, or you're just plain stupid.

    You "don't think" this, and you believe he's "possibly cost" that. So what? Nail those accusations down with some facts, rather than with your opinions.

    If you'd thought before posting, you'd have asked some more logical questions, such as:

    Who could replace Corbyn, who'd have such broad-based appeal as Corbyn does?
    How easily could a new leadership election be gerrymandered by the right of the party?
    Who would benefit from a leadership election?

    Should have just openly came out for leave. Would have been basis for The Great Reconciliation. Politically/electorally at least.

    I actually thought Corbyn's position on this was the only sensible position a remain supporting politician could take. Would him wholeheartedly lying like the rest of them shifted any votes? Unlikely. Or, in the other direction at least.

    Corbyn probably doesn't want to pick up this mess, it'd be toxic once the P45s are flying out. Let the tories deal with the consequences of their stupidity.
