Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

The ghost of Blair continues to loom large. I personally hope Corbyn defeats the malcontents and gets on with leading the party. Hundreds of thousands of people joined or rejoined Labour (myself included) because we liked Corbyn's vision of equality and fairness for all. To have that usurped by political skulduggery is frankly appalling. The press were reporting that Hilary Benn was sacked by Corbyn in a phone call, but what seems to have been forgotten is the fact that Benn was orchestrating a coup at the time.

Its depressing that at a time when the conservatives are at their most divided and incapable of governing, a core of Blairite MPs are desperate to sabotage their own party. Just like John Mann did by haranguing Ken Livingstone a week before the elections and plunging the party into turmoil.

Perhaps the best way forward would be for the Blairite contingent to form a breakaway party or better still join he LibDems. They clearly seem at odds with core Labour voters and have nothing but contempt for the Trade Unions (which overwhelming support Corbyn).
How dare John Mann go against Corbynite values of Antisemitism, supporting Terror while not having much to say about Brexit ?
