Former Labour MP Tom Harris has hit out at the delusion of the party's hard left and suggested that they would keep Corbyn as leader given the chance.  Given the complete failure of the leadership to accept responsibility for the election defeat, why should their followers be any different?  The news that Rebecca Long-Bailey has appointed a committed Stalinist to run her leaadership campaign vindicates everything that Tom Harris told LBC's Matt Stadlen on Saturday (see below).  Stadlen himself later tweeted that the election of Long-Bailey as Corbyn's successor would write off Labour's chances in 2024 and that we were witnessing the "destruction of a party".
