    Then by extension, does he reject the entire notion of collective responsibility?
    The shadow cabinet is *technically* not bound by collective responsibility, since they do not play any role in policy implementation.

    But most shadow cabinets do exercise it.

    Why on earth would Corbyn sack his most loyal supporter? That, and he's a beta male leftist cuck who will never betray the woman who he once went out with.

    For all his many, many faults I don't think Corbyn is a weak person. The amount of abuse he gets from even his own supporters shows a fair bit of steel. I remember Cameron saying he was impressed that Corbyn appears un put off by his PMQs performances which is often s daunting experience. I see myself as quite a steadfast person but I dont think I could put up with what Corbyn has.

    He has in this instance rightly concluded that he can't really credibly discipline people overly harshly when he was a serial rebel.

    Heh, first time I've defended Corbyn.
