To be honourable Neil Coyle, and those of his ilk, should resign from the Labour Party and as an MP and thus trigger a by-election standing as Independents against recognised Labour Party supported candidates.

Did I dream him winning the seat by c.4,000 votes just last year? For the Labour party? Or is your contention that he only won the seat because of an obscure, long-term back-bencher from North London that very few people at the time had ever even heard of (though quite a few people in the constituency probably knew his brother)?

IIRC he won the seat due to the previous MP having been a member of the ruling coalition. Not all voters were aware of his miserable track record as a councillor......

I know there's been some griping on here about the lack of responses from Neil Coyle, but he appears to have taken some time off today from undermining his party leadership to answer an e-mail I sent him a few weeks ago about CETA and TTIP.

The FT reported today that the local party has also voted for a motion of 'no confidence' in Jeremy Corbyn.

Right now, at the Elephant & Castle, there is a gathering expressing support for Corbyn.

Neil Coyle is not expected to attend...

Wot, no Socialist Worker banners?

I bet that the Socialist Worker would have checked that centre banner and realised that 'strength' contains two 't's.They're strong on the strength business, they are.

The SWP didn't attend, but the Socialist Party did. The set up at the margins of the demo, and didn't take part in the photo-ops, nor did they speak.

Out of curiosity I chatted with them, and they explained that they represent the Militant Tendency that was expelled from Labour in the 1980s, but they all seemed too young to have been a part of that movement. Perhaps they see themselves as political heirs of that group.

It was clear that the Labour Corbyn supporters didn't particularly like them being there.

That would have given completely the wrong idea. Many older people don't have fond memories of the militant tendency.
Goodness knows what their doctrine was, or why they tended to be militant about it.I guess that that particular era of uprisers have grown up, recounting their fond memories to their disbelieving grandchildren. Those days of attacking police with their placards, smashing shop windows and defacing statues ; they couldn't stir us up into a class war, but they had an awfully good time trying.
