Margaret Hodge and Ann Coffey – what a pair of idiots.

Many members of the Parliamentary Labour Party will probably jump at the chance to rid itself of a leader that was imposed on it by the party membership – a membership that has more than doubled since he announced his candidacy a year ago.

If the vote goes ahead and he is ousted, though, the same party membership will be outraged and the result could be a split that will render Labour impotent for decades.

It is electoral suicide.

And these two creatures can’t – or won’t – see it.

This Writer takes solace in the fact that Mr Corbyn has said he will stand for re-election if a leadership challenge takes place, and the vastly Corbyn-supporting Labour membership will put him back on top automatically.

What then for his opponents in the party? Will they do the decent thing and quit – not just as Labour MPs but as MPs altogether, clearing the way for candidates who are more able to follow the will of their party?

Or will they carry on making a bloody nuisance of themselves?

This challenge could not have come at a worse time.

The UK needs unity and strong direction but these fake-Labour fools are offering nothing but division and dissent.

Two Labour MPs have submitted a motion of no confidence in Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

Margaret Hodge and Ann Coffey confirmed the move in a letter to the chairman of the Parliamentary Labour Party.

The motion has no formal constitutional force but calls for a discussion at their next PLP meeting on Monday.

It will be up to the PLP chairman to decide whether it is debated. If accepted it would be followed by a secret ballot of Labour MPs on Tuesday.
