Jeremy Corbyn has the support of the party members.


 I will not be forced out by my own MP's.


The MP's who are considering staging a "revolt" should also consider that Jeremy Corbyn received over 251,000 votes, or 60% of the votes cast by the membership of the party. In addition to this, around 78,000 people have joined the Labour party since 12th September and many of those, I would suggest, joined because of their support for Jeremy Corbyn.
Many Constituency Parties (the CLP's) endorsed Corbyn's nomination on the ballot paper, and of the others who chose to endorse another candidate or not to make any endorsement, many have a significant number of members who do support the new leader. The Parliamentary Labour Party (the PLP) MP's would do well to recognise, whether they like it or not, that there is a new way of doing things in the Labour Party and that perhaps of equal importance, Jeremy Corbyn has overwhelming support amongst the membership of the party.
