Corbyn is in fine health – should we be concerned for his critics?

Side-eye: The look Jeremy Corbyn bestows on those he deems to have behaved below standard seems likely to be awarded to those who have suggested he is in poor health - if only those people weren't too scared to admit who they are.

It would be funny if his critics weren’t so serious about it: Having failed to gain traction by attacking his politics, Labour’s ‘intolerant’ MPs are now attacking his health.

But while groundless claims that he fainted in his office are easily batted away, perhaps more concern should be shown for those who are creating and circulating these rumours.

We should be concerned that the stress has, indeed, been too much for people on the right wing of the Parliamentary Labour Party.

It seems clear that some – possibly many – of them may have had nervous breakdowns either during Mr Corbyn’s campaign for the leadership or after he won.

Perhaps it is time they retired on medical grounds, and cleared the way for fresher minds to take over their Parliamentary seats.

Mr Corbyn’s team has been left incensed by continuing attacks on his leadership by moderate Labour MPs and has decided to break its silence on the abuse.

Sources close to the Labour leader have revealed that he has been forced to reassure MPs in private that he is not going to quit after being made aware of “smears” circulating Parliament about his fitness for the job – including the “categorically untrue” allegation that he briefly “passed out” under stress in his office last month.

    Dr Corbyn seems to have a better skill at political diagnosis and winning elections than his critics. The Blarites need a sedative they are on the road to mental collapse.

    Jeremy Corbyn may not be fit at the next election but i don’t see that a problem with a likeminded person standing by to take over form him

    Having said that he and i are very similar in all of our views so if I were a mp I would be the natural choice to take over from him but to get another mp who shares the same views may well indeed be complexed as the age difference and background are not there at this time

    I hope that a more natural labour mp will come about who is much younger but who naturally shares corbyn views just in case corbyn is unable to take the labour party forward through ill health

    This is not a difficult job after all in running a country for a decent person who is proactive already in their local community will find it us tiring as a walk in the park

    The only reason the likes of Cameron find it difficult is because he like so many other leaders of the past and mp’s are not the real deal and like we all see make a hash of doing even the most basic of things like affordable housing for all or making students pay sky high tuition fees so that the next generation of citizens can live in a secure framework

    If you can’t get the very basis right your country is always going to be out on a limb with many suffering like we see today as a result
