But some Labour MPs suggest even more drastic remedial action is required.
“In order to convince the public that you’ve moved on, you have to have a Clause Four-type moment,” one member told me. “Which would probably involve kicking John McDonnell out of the Labour Party or something like that.
“You have a purge. Ken Livingstone gone, maybe even Jeremy [Corbyn] gone. That’s the only way that you can persuade the public that you’re not like that.”
Here's an idea, Labour MPs! Stop being dicks, start co-operating. Make Corbyn effectiveley irrelevant by doing such a fantastic job of running all the shadow portfolios that. It. Stops. Being. About. Him.
So suddenly being leader is really almost a ceremonial role. Christ, Attlee was deried as being a little man surrounded by a cabinet of giants. Corbyn has a different problem. He's a little man surrounded by a party of microbes.
