    I would be open to replacing Corbyn tbh, but two objections. First is the lack of an obvious contender, Benn? Eagle? None stick out as someone to shake things up.

    Additionally, the PLP behaviour is disgraceful, anyone who resigned in protest against Corbyn was petty and frankly lost all my respect. Tom Watson is another who deserves criticism for that.

    I'd be open to a split of some kind.

    When did you become a UKIP supporter? There are only two winners from a split: the Tories and UKIP.

    Not necessarily, if they split but have an agreement they can fight in different seats.

    Or, we can continue with our MPs saying we should ignore the Labour members who vote in their leader.

    If they're splitting do you really expect such an agreement? And hey, why don't we keep the current parliament indefinitely, after all they were voted in last year, how could we possibly ignore that and dare suggest that the support is not the same any more?

    Ah, so you don't think the result is being used an excuse to remove him? Other than being planned 6 months ago?

    I still suspect Labour members back Corbyn, if that isn't the case then the correct thing would be to vote him out, note though that they are begging for his resignation.

    Things are much better for the party if he resigns because it leads to a much more open leadership battle. In terms of those that want him in and out it is roughly tied, those that think he should go now and stay until 2020 are roughly tied, with about s tenth saying he should go before the election but not yet (see the bar for the polls)

    Should the co-operative party leave labour due to the no confidence vote.
    It's hard to say - I presume you're asking this from the perspective that Jeremy Corbyn and particularly John McDonnell are the first senior MPs to take the cooperative movement seriously in a very long time. On the other hand, many of the Labour & Co-operative MPs appear to be towards the right of the party and some of the most likely to openly oppose Corbyn and undermine him.

    It's all very peculiar, my views line up very well of those of the Co-operative Party and I struggled to find anything I disagreed with on their 2015 manifesto, but I consider myself fairly far left (although much like the Co-operative Party I advocate a gradual/persuasive push to my ideals rather than forcing radical immediate change) and I'm a big supporter of Corbyn. I have seen little evidence that any of the Labour Co-op MPs actually do much to push the cooperative movement up the agenda in parliament. I can only assume that they go down that route because the Co-op party provides extra help for its members to gain selection as a candidate in their constituency's.

    So to answer your question, I have no idea. Whilst I question their claims that the relationship with Labour has helped to push their agenda to the forefront over the years, I very much doubt there is much of a gap in the market for them to go it alone, especially with the FPTP electoral system; the Green Party also has extensive policy on cooperatives.

    Over a week on with no news of a reshuffle, does this mean that the leader of the opposition is carrying on their other ministerial roles, or that key parts of the opposition do not exist?

    With the grammar boy having now assassinated no less than three Bullingdon boys (Osbourne, Cameron, Boris), when will you declare him your champion.

    Being serious, does it embarrass you that in 3 months Gove has done what none of your leaders have been able to do in more than 6 years.

    Gove is a slimy snake who shouldn't be admired in any way, shape or form. Has that answered your question?

    Seems a standard method of appointing Sith Lords.

    I think he's referring to the requests he's been making in here.
