ES Views Letter of the Day: Why is Corbyn still Labour leader?

Time's up? Jeremy Corbyn has struggled to impress during his time at the Labour helm

Jeremy Corbyn has once again failed to score when presented with an open goal after the Government’s back-tracking on National Insurance.

Winning the Stoke Central by-election gave him a lifeline but his position as Leader of the Opposition is rapidly becoming untenable. His union paymasters should not stand for his inability to challenge the Government. At a time when this country needs accountability, questioning and an effective Opposition, there is none.

For the sake of our country’s future, for the Labour Party, and for our own sensibilities, he needs to be cut adrift.
James West


I can’t be the only one who noticed that when Jeremy Corbyn failed to bring the Chancellor to account over National Insurance contributions, Yvette Cooper stepped in.

Perhaps she might be next in line as Labour leader if, as expected, Corbyn is eventually ousted?
