This is quite an interesting twist on the usual attempts to undermine Jeremy Corbyn.

Instead of demanding that Mr Corbyn must quit as leader, for the good of the Labour Party, they are implying that – if they quit instead – Labour must lose the 2020 general election.

This is real nonsense with no evidence to support it.

All that is to be achieved by any Labour MPs following Jamie Reed’s example is their own unemployment.

Still, some may see that as an end in itself, so perhaps it is as well that more of them are considering a leap onto their own (metaphorical) swords.

Blairite MPs may follow the recently resigned Jamie Reed by leaving Labour to sign up for jobs in private firms, it is rumored.

Reed, who was MP for Copeland, quit this week saying he could better help his community by taking a job in the nuclear industry which is centered in the area.

While he did not cite leader Jeremy Corbyn as a reason for quitting, Reed has been an outspoken critic of the socialist in the past, particularly during failed coup attempts in 2016.

In the tradition of recent coup bids, the person claiming that more resignations were likely has been identified only as an anonymous Labour source.

“They are looking at it from a pragmatic point of view: go on their own terms now rather than be defeated at the next election and go into a job pool full of other ex-Labour MPs,” a former politician told the Telegraph.
