    The trouble with Jeremy Corbyn.

    Shadow cabinet: The comings and goings under Corbyn, and the current line-up

    It's been a torrid 18 months for Jeremy Corbyn, at least in terms of shadow cabinet manoeuvres.

    A flurry of resignations in the run-up to the recent Brexit Bill forced the Labour leader to announce his fourth re-shuffle since taking charge.

    Four roles in particular have seen the greatest turnover, each with four MPs filling these positions since September 2015, when Mr Corbyn took charge.

    The latest re-shuffle puts newcomers Rebecca Long-Bailey and Christina Rees into two of these roles.

    Get the full reshuffle at The BBC HERE




    As Corbyn pulls as many left-wingers as he can into the shadow cabinet, all he is doing is dragging the party further and further to the left when we all know that a hard-left party will never get re-elected under Corbyn.

    Sadly, the last leader to do this successfully was Tony Blair when he drew the Labour party firmly to the right in order to attract anybody from the middle-ground and even a few previous Tory voters.

    Has anybody any idea what has to happen to the Labour party to make it electable again ?

    Yes, with the Labour party lurching to the far left, it is virtually unelectable now.

    With a leader who is left of Karl Marx he cannot do anything to make a grab at the middle-of-the-road voters.

    As a Socialist myself I find it heart-wrenching that the modern Labour party cannot do what will need to be done to make it electable again.

    I think that Corbyn will eventually be forced to stand down in favour of a more middle-of-the-road leader who will look more statesman-like and can rally all of the Labour party together again.

    This is what is going to have to be done to give the Party a chance of getting back into power.

    He fluffed it for me with Brexit - 16m votes going begging and he stuck two fingers up at them

    I hate to agree with you Gandhi, but on that you are right.

    That was a serious mistake which will be remembered for a very long time.
