I'd consider voting for Labour if Chuka was in charge. He seems to be the only one who talks any sense, although voting for a party that contains Abbott, Harman, Corbyn, Watson, McDonnell et al would be difficult to stomach. For a long time they've been a party of jokers who are almost impossible to take seriously, which is a shame as we need a decent opposition. Tim Farron - despite the BBC's attempts to shoehorn him into every discussion - just doesn't cut it and the Lib Dems feel more irrelevant than ever.

I really wished that Norman Lamb had won that leadership election.

With the Copeland result, will Corbyn look to step aside?

You have to go back to 28th March 1878 for a like for like seat like Copeland to have swung from Opposition to Government. John Derby Allcroft took Worcester for the Conservatives from the Liberals who had a 7.6% majority.

I don't think you can just claim the nuclear issue on this. Anyone who actually wants Labour to win should want Corbyn to go.

If he stays, I wouldn't be surprised to see further Labour MPs resign since they'll expect no possibility of being in government to at least 2025.

I missed John McDonald on the radio this morning as he was supposed to be on after I'd got out the car but I can pretty much guarantee he'd have passed Copeland off as being a local issue on nuclear. The world and his aunt know it isn't but that'll be the message coming out of party HQ. They're going to get absolutely decimated at the next GE if they carry on down this course.
