Jeremy Corbyn: He has been far too tolerant of the backstabbers on his back benches.

Theresa May’s Brexit deal is in serious trouble. She doesn’t have enough support in her own party – and her buddies-due-to-bribery, the DUP, won’t help because of her proposals for Northern Ireland – to get it past Parliament.

And it will be seen as a vote of confidence in her government. If she loses, the Tory government could fall.

But she does have a glimmer of hope. The so-called Labour “centrists” may roll through the “Aye” lobby to save her.

Let’s just have a think about that. Here’s Tom London to concentrate our minds:

That’s not just cynicism; it’s hypocrisy and – above all – treachery.

The Labour Party line on this crucial matter is that the proposed deal does not meet its six tests, so Labour MPs must oppose it.

So, what will happen?

I hope everybody can see the contradictions here. Labour “centrists” (they really belong to the far right of the party and would be far more at home in the Liberal Democrats if they can’t bear to join the Conservatives; the only reason they are in Labour is they think the party’s name carries a higher chance of them being elected into office and onto a government gravy train) have accused Jeremy Corbyn of facilitating Theresa May’s Brexit but seem set to launch it themselves – and are then likely to blame Mr Corbyn for their actions.

What do you think the party should do with these betrayers – if they go through with the plan as laid out above?

I agree with Bevan Boy:

Evolve Politics seems to think it’s all on, too:

But I have a doubt.

Labour’s internal procedures are a corrupt mess.

The party recently expelled me on a charge of anti-Semitism, having proved that one or two people had complained about content I posted on this website which they said may be regarded as abusive and offensive for reasons of their own which were not explored. As you can see, that is not proof of the charge. It is proof that somebody said something nasty about me.

Given that a valuable member of the Labour Party can be expelled for no valid reason, it seems logical to believe that members who actively work to harm the same organisation will find a way to remain in positions of power.

So the question arises: What can we do to stop it?

It seems clear that, as this is such a crucial matter, Labour MPs will be issued with a three-line whip – an order to vote against the Tory government. Those defying the whip need to be warned that, as this has the potential to bring down a Tory government and replace it with a Labour administration, any support for Theresa May should be considered an act of treachery against the party (and indeed the United Kingdom as a whole).

It is not enough to threaten MPs who express such support with temporary removal of the party whip, nor will the possibility of deselection be enough to deter them.

It should be considered to be unacceptable conduct for a Labour MP and anyone carrying out such an act should be expelled from the party.

Perhaps the possibility that they will be thrown off the Westminster gravy train will keep these traitors on the right track.
