Another Vox Political prediction comes true. This Writer stated that claims that Clive Lewis was preparing a leadership challenge against Jeremy Corbyn were fake and it is good to see them laid to rest so quickly.

Of course this means the Daily Telegraph has an explanation to make.

Do you think we’ll ever see one?

Stories started circulating after [Clive Lewis’s] resignation that he was ringing around Labour MPs to sound them out as part of a coup against the veteran left-winger.

“There has been speculation about that, and it is just that. You can quote me on this. It is total ********,”, he said. He insisted he would still be “working hard to support the leadership and the party from the backbenches”.

He claimed any talk that he was preparing for the top Labour job was part of a “game of fantasy politics in Westminster”, insisting that “nothing could be further from my mind”.

“I have been in parliament for just over two years, I still have a lot to learn, my plan consists of getting back into a backbench routine. Working hard for my constituents and helping my party hold the government to account,” he said.
