Jeremy Corbyn will NOT stand down after more than 100,000 sign petition of support


I signed the petition calling for Jeremy Corbyn to ignore the neoliberals and Blairites who want him to stand down.

If you haven’t, please do. It may be found here.

Jeremy Corbyn has said he will not stand down if there is a challenge to his leadership of the Labour Party.

He is facing a vote of no confidence over what some of his MPs called his “lacklustre” campaigning for Remain in the EU referendum.

He cited a petition urging him to stay on and vowed to fight to protect workers’ rights in Brexit negotiations.

He also announced a review of immigration policy and ruled out a new EU referendum if Labour wins power.

    It seems unclear under current rules if Corbyn can stand for election in a leadership vote without being proposed and supported by Labour MPs.

    1. Mike Sivier Post author

      It’s perfectly clear; the problem is some Labour Party members trying to cloud the issue with inconsequentialities.

    we need Boris Johnson to stand as prime minister and then to call a general election
    this is the correct procedure

    Jeremy corbyn does not need to stand down but should do if he feels boris will have the upper hand over him

    this would mean that Boris would win that general election quite easily

    my daughter knows Boris well enough to say he is very easy with people and is an expert in small chit chat

    he is all things to all people a perfect man should you meet him especially after midnight in a crowded bar

    we are where we are so I’m going to stick my neck out and wish Boris well in becoming the conservative next leader

    as for becoming prime minister however corbyn will have to find some weakness in Boris’s philosophy if labour are going to lead this country

    Boris is a master of wit with a friendlily smile and labour will find that difficult to break through to win at a general election

        i through you would mike but Boris is very witty and i cant see how you could unseat him if he become prime minister ?

      2. Mike Sivier Post author

        Well, let’s see.
        How about the fact that he has no idea how to run a country?
        He just campaigned on the winning side in a referendum and has absolutely no clue about what to do with that victory. No plan for execution of the mandate given him by the UK’s population there – so why should we believe he has any kind of plan for governing the country?
        We shouldn’t.

    If these back bencher’s don’t like their boss (voted for by the public), perhaps they should quit and find another employer more to their liking!
    They obviously aren’t to keen on democracy!

    In the event of the pro-Blairs ousting Corbyn there will be so many people, like me, leaving the Labour Party and punishing the remaining Bliars so hard that they will be reduced to the same level of representation as the Liberals. Perhaps the time has come for a new Progressive Party that incorporates the Greens and rejects neoliberalism and austerity.

      I can’t wait for the exodus from the Labour Party of the three-quidders and 1980s throwbacks. As long as they’re calling the shots, the Tories can stay in power as long as they like.

      Game on.

      1. Mike Sivier Post author

        I can’t wait for the exodus of the red Tories, clueless bunch of champagne socialists that they are. How do they fight Tory policies? With weak Tory policies.
        No wonder the voters have given them a kicking, twice in a row.

    I signed it too. This is a time for unity against the real enemy, the nasty Tory Government.

  6. hayfords

    I signed it for times with four email addresses. I don’t want Corbyn to leave. He is a huge advantage to the Conservative Party. He is clearly a very nice and genuine guy, but so is my local greengrocer. Neither is capable of leading a political party.

    1. Mike Sivier Post author

      Were they different email addresses from those you used to support his nomination? Because, you know, those emails were all weeded out. 😉

      1. hayfords

        No. I have some software that generates new email addresses. I use a new email address for every new purpose. I rarely reuse email addresses, because that way I don’t get junk mail. I just keep a few for personal use. It would thus be difficult to weed out my email addresses.

      2. Nick

        he will only get voted in again by the labour members as the others are not like jo cox who would run Jeremy close and was respected by the conservatives

    >>I signed it for times with four email addresses. I don’t want Corbyn to leave. He is a huge advantage to the Conservative Party.

    Oh them who is the leader? haven#t seen much from him leading the country providing leadership oh that’s right he just to busy sulking after loosing a referendum he called and you say Corbyn is a advantage. Or maybe your waiting for saint Boris the clueless to save your party….

      having said the above’ sometimes in life you may have to step down for a person not necessarily more qualified for the job but for someone who has a more engaging personality ?

      my eldest daughter for example has just secured a better position at a London airport who has always worked mainly with women as cabin staff

      she has now got a position as ground staff (apron tarmac) working mainly with man and although not qualified for the role management prefer her personality over all the other people seeking this position

      and that could quite well be in that we’ll see and that’s Jeremy stepping down to make way for a better suited personality

      jo cox for example would have been ideal and i think Jeremy might well have agreed on that and stood down for her

      we the public did not know jo very well but her 20 years prior to being a mp was very insightful being pushed along by all who got to know her

      maybe there is another jo kicking around in the background of the labour party that would be ideal to take over in how i believe Jo would of if Jeremy decides to stand down ?
