And what about the fact that this suggestion was made about a political leader whose mandate from his membership was overwhelming?
If a military coup was within the bounds of reason here, surely it should be directed against the Conservatives, whose wafer-thin majority was based on the votes of just 24 per cent of the population and built on a tissue of lies.

An unnamed British army general told the Sunday Times newspaper last month that the Labour leader could face a “munity” from senior military officers, “by whatever means possible, fair or foul”.
But a YouGov poll found that only nine per cent of the population would be sympathetic to a coup if Mr Corbyn became Prime Minister.
