In the week of the Labour Party conference, we thought it would be useful to look at what various prominent Labour MPs really think about Jeremy Corbyn in their own words.
This morning Sir Keir Starmer, the Shadow Brexit Secretary, spoke of Corbyn’s Labour Party as a potential government.
But just last year, he resigned from Corbyn’s front bench, writing:
‘I have maintained my support for you, notwithstanding my reservations…It is simply untenable now to suggest that we can offer an effective opposition without a change of leader.’
After the Copeland by-election, Starmer said:
“A number of things came up, including the direction of travel of the Labour party, Labour’s ability to communicate and understand what people are saying to them and of course the leadership of the Labour party, and we all know that.”
