If Angela Eagle wants to be Labour leader, she might want to avoid repeating mistakes like this

When Angela Eagle, Shadow First Secretary of State and Shadow Secretary of State for Business, Innovation, and Skills handed in her resignation letter to Jeremy Corbyn, she made her misgivings with his leadership clear.

In particular, she cited his performance in the Remain campaign as a reason why she had lost faith in him.

“I was devastated by the result of the EU referendum. Too many of our supporters were taken in by right-wing arguments and I believe this happened, in part, because under your leadership the case to remain in the EU was made with half-hearted ambivalence rather than full-throated clarity.”

Unfortunately for Eagle, just two weeks ago, she was singing a very different tune:

If Eagle does have designs on the party leadership, she may want to avoid publicly contradicting herself in future.

      Let’s have a think about this: The ‘Angela4leader.org’ website name was bought on Saturday but she is adamant that she knew nothing about it. This is possible, if others decided they wanted her to be the stalking horse, but didn’t tell her until after they, or someone they instructed, encouraged her to resign from the Shadow Cabinet. If they approached and convinced her afterwards, then there’s deniability.

      Of course, that would make Angela Eagle a gullible dupe, unfit to lead in any case because she’s having her strings pulled by someone in the background. I’d like to know who encouraged her to resign and who asked her to stand for the leadership.

    I think it fair to say that I would trust Angela Eagle about as far as I could throw her(which would be in the nearest refuse dump).

    63% of Labour voters were remain, 64% of SNP supporters were remain, nobody is suggesting that Nicola Sturgeon failed so badly she should resign. The Labour coup is nothing at all to do with the referendum at all, anybody stupid enough to pretend it does should be regarded as a self interested liar and disregarded completely.
