Another day, another demonstration that Jeremy Corbyn has to resign as Labour leader. Over the past few days the Labour frontbench has resigned almost en masse. The resignations have come from the left and right of the party, from figures both well-known and obscure. All have said the same thing: that Corbyn cannot win an election. The Leader’s response was defiant: he will not stand down, he has a mandate from the members. And he and his supporters have rallied the revolutionary left in their hundreds, for example at a rally in Parliament square last night, to bray their support and “prove” Corbyn’s popularity.
