This response perfectly sums up the problem with the Labour Party.
Messrs Kinnock and Miliband concede that Corbyn has the support of the members and supporters. However, they argue that, as he does not command the confidence of the PLP, he should resign. But we can very easily turn Kinnock’s and Miliband’s logic against them. As the PLP does not command the confidence of the party members and supporters, they should do the logical thing – they should put themselves up for reselection. This would, it can be guaranteed, solve all the problems of the present situation, for the outcome of this democratic process would then give us a PLP that would command the confidence of the members and supporters, and Corbyn would then command the confidence of the PLP. Two birds killed with one stone. I ask you, which logic is the democratic one: Kinnock’s and Miliband’s, or democracy’s?
