The fallout over the “Revenge Reshuffle” goes on
What a day. First there was the news that Cameron is to allow ministers freedom to campaign for LEAVE in EURef campaign… and Corbyn’s reshuffle is sending our reverberations that look set to make any form of reconciliation in the party nigh on impossible.
From the information that’s coming out the notion of a “revenge reshuffle” came from Corbyn’s close advisors while the leader was on holiday in Malta. It is that term and all it say that’s driving this.
All is not helped by the fact that 93.5% of Labour MPs did not support the eventual winner in the leadership contest. The numbers alone point to a massive divide.
It’s very hard to predict where this will go. We don’t even know yet what is in the reshuffle.
