Quote# 132726

The coup against Jeremy Corbyn is an orchestrated attack planned and executed by rogue MP’s and a PR firm connected to Blair that has numerous ties deep within the centre-right faction of the Labour party and its media backing. It is not happening because of ‘incompetence’ or a ‘failed’ referendum campaign as the media would have us believe.

It is a last-ditch attempt at overthrowing an individual perceived as a threat to the neoliberal establishment and it is happening not only with contempt and utter disregard for democratic process, but at the expense of the party members they are supposed to represent, who elected him leader with the largest mandate of any political party leader in UK history.

Blimey, if it was a coup, Owen Smith could have brought in the heavies instead of causing a leadership challenge, which seemed like reasonable democratic discourse to me, especially when the leader had lost the trust of the MPs.

I wonder if you will be as vocal about the potential leadership challenge coup orchestrated against Theresa May by rogue Conservative MPs.

Just because they elected him leader doesn't mean he can't be replaced if he loses the confidence of the MPs.
