    Oh right. I didn't know anything at all about its existence in the first place.

    Was in his original shadow cabinet, when he was creating non positions so he could put women in them because they're women so he could claim to be progressive, it has mysteriously disappeared since.

    That's because the only reason it stopped existing was that the holder of the post resigned from the Shadow Cabinet during the crap coup. Corbyn subsequently didn't have enough support to nominate anyone else to the position.

    This is Corbyn having his photo taken with the Labour campaign group on mental health, who probably made this placard so they could wave it at Corbyn himself, and will have been delighted with the leader's attention. The alternative interpretation, of course not preferred by the hard-right hacks at Guido, is that Corbyn was photographed holding the placard to show he acknowledges the campaign group's concerns and will endeavour to bring back the position.

    I'm not sure how any of that justifies him protesting against his own decision. It's not other people's fault that he's such an inadequate leader that he can't even convince one third of his own parliamentary party to take up a shadow ministerial position

    Lean leave it vacant, leaving it vacant means you can at least say nobody wanted it, getting rid of it says "I don't really care that much"
