So far 6 Croydon Labour Councillors have signed the letter calling for Jeremy Corbyn to resign as Party Leader. They are Andrew Rendle, Patrick Ryan, John Wentworth, Louisa Woodley, Oliver Lewis and Maggie Mansell.
The question has to be asked, how many people who are joining the attempted coup d’etat against the democratically elected Leader of the Labour Party, may not realise that one of the unspoken reasons for trying to get him to resign is the forthcoming potential bombshell of the Chilcot Report.
Corbyn only has three more days to hang on so that he delivers the official Opposition response to the report.
The fall-out for those MPs, ex-MPs and former controllers of the Party, who backed the War, could be massive. Possible Leadership contender Angela Eagle, for example, voted for the Iraq War and against an independent inquiry.
Let us hope that anyone who was opposed to the War who has signed up to the attempt to force Corbyn to resign will realise that they may be being conned.
Although I am not a Labour Party member I have posted a comment on the Chilcot issue on the Labour List website.
On Thursday night Croydon Central Labour Party met. It discussed the Labour Party crisis but no resolutions were proposed. On Friday the Croydon UNITE retired members branch gave its backing to Corbyn. Members were staggered at what they regarded as the undemocratic action of the MPs.
