If J Corbyn does eventually step aside from the Labour leadership surely the first name on the new ballot will be John McConnel.
He would soak up the same hard left membership vote as Corbyn, leaving the party in much the same position if he won.
Stop flying in the face of reality. There has to be some kind of split and all the PLP and the membership can do is fight over when, along what precise fault line and who gets the only prize – the Labour name!
