No, this is not a joke. What's more, Jeremy Corbyn's constituency also ignored leftist candidates in the deputy leadership race, opting for Angela Rayner. What an embarrassment for the Great Leader.

Islington North backed its MP for leader in both the 2015 and 2016 leadership elections and was expected to endorse his natural successor this time round - Rebecca Long-Bailey. Constituencies represented by other senior hard left MPs had already endorsed Long-Bailey, including Hayes and Harlington (John McDonnell), Hackney North and Stoke Newington (Diane Abbott), Leeds East (Richard Burgon) and Wansbeck (Ian Lavery).
This is a total humiliation for Corbyn.
