Labour rebels believe they can topple Jeremy Corbyn after the EU referendum in a 24-hour blitz by jumping on a media storm of his own making.
Moderate MPs who believe Mr Corbyn can never win back power think his failure to close down public rows which flare up and dominate the news channels leaves him vulnerable.
By fanning the flames with front bench resignations and public criticism they think the signatures needed to trigger a leadership race can be gathered within a day.
They see the tactic as a way of securing public support for the move while targeting what is perceived as one of the Labour leader’s major flaws – indecision.
To paraphrase Bucks Fizz the anti-Corbyn MPs are hoping his indecision takes his leadership from him, but whilst Corbyn retains the support of the membership, Labour MPs are living in The Land Of Make Believe if they think they will topple him. Until we see polling that the membership won’t re-elect Corbyn, Labour MPs would be wise to delay any plans to topple Corbyn.
