How can Corbyn stay with any support when his MPs voted 172 to 40 against ? If a general election takes place now, Labour will get massacred with internal division.
He can't. He's lost the support of about 80% of his MPs. He either needs to resign by lunchtime tomorrow or someone in the PLP needs to challenge for leadership. The rot needs to be stopped.
The problems in Labour are greater than Corbyn though. He needs to go from the leadership and go off to do the grassroots work, but needs to play ball with whoever is the next leader. Not sure he can do that.
Andy Burnham needs to do what he was thinking of doing and go and run for Mayor of Manchester because someone in the party needs to reconnect with the North, but from outwith Westminster.
From within the PLP they need someone who can stop the rot and unite the party. Ideally that needs to come from the soft left middle of the party. Whether that person is there for the long term to stand for PM in a GE I don't know. There are people who could unite the party but probably won't been keen on running for PM.
