This one reckons he has nothing in common with Jeremy Corbyn. Corbyn became Labour leader because he has reconnected with people who share his traditional Labour values. So this one can’t hold Labour values and the Party is better-off without him.
His claim that Labour is no longer a credible opposition says everything you need to know; Labour is far more credible now than it has been since Tony Blair’s time.
Much has been made of claims that Corbyn followers want to launch a ‘purge’ of the Party, to rid it of right-wingers. It seems all they really have to do is wait – and they’ll leave of their own accord.
Lord Grabiner [who?] has become the second peer to abandon Labour’s benches in the House of Lords because of Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership of the party, saying “I can’t square [staying] with my conscience”.
His decision comes five days after former junior health minister Lord Warner resigned the Labour whip, saying it was no longer “a credible party of government-in-waiting”.
Explaining his decision, he said: “I have nothing in common whatever with Mr Corbyn – and I don’t believe we are ever going to win an election.”
