In case anybody has forgotten: Jeremy Corbyn has more support than any other UK political leader.

This Independent piece by Matthew Turner has it exactly right: If Jeremy Corbyn is to make any headway he must eliminate his critics within the party – who aren’t representative of members’ opinions anyway – and mount a strong ideological opposition to the Tories.

The vast majority of Corbyn’s critics are yet to come up with any meaningful solutions to the problems that we face – the few solutions that have been offered thus far are simply not grounded in reality.

The truth is that most of the so-called “moderates” in the Labour Party know what the solution is – they just don’t want to acknowledge it.

The only way Corbyn can succeed… is by taking the sharp left turn that he was elected to do.
The people also need to see an authoritative and relentless streak that has so far been absent from his leadership.

In short, Corbyn must fight back. He needs to take control of the party before he can take control of the country, otherwise he is nothing but a sitting duck.

One of the ways this can be achieved is through enabling the democratic right of CLPs to reselect and deselect their parliamentary candidates, and organising in order to ensure that young, up and coming, “fire in the belly” left wingers replace those who are actively seeking to undermine the Labour Party under Jeremy Corbyn.
