Jeremy Mallin, writing from Solihull, firmly admonishes the FT

ft nikkeiSir, You argue in your editorial “Labour must now act to remove Corbyn as leader” (June 28) that Jeremy Corbyn should go.

Why? And why should you say so?

I am not a fan of Mr Corbyn or the Labour party, but its constitution vests the selection of its leader, whether you like it or not, in the whole party membership, paid-up supporters and affiliated trade unions.

It is all very well for an ever-increasing number of Labour MPs to state that they want him to resign, and although it is obvious that trying to continue without their support is impossible, I admire Mr Corbyn for standing by the rules of his party’s constitution.

The attitude articulated by Labour MPs in this instance, and by the FT and others on issues such as the EU referendum, that the rules of the game should be ignored in order to satisfy the whims of a self-appointed and laughably called “elite,” is one of the reasons Leave won last week’s referendum, and the ongoing uprising against the west’s “elite” will continue to resonate.
