As Labour membership reach 600,000 Blairites give up

On a very important day in our history, Tony Blair has been proven a liar and a terrorist and most likely faces trial, whilst the Blairites give up fighting Corbyn as Labour membership surges to 600,000.



New Labour Blairites are in retreat after admitting that Jeremy Corbyn cannot be removed and would win easily if a leadership election is triggered.

One senior MP told The Telegraph: "It's finished. He will win easily in a second contest if he is on the ballot, it's everything we wanted to avoid."

Labour membership is on course to hit 600,000, a half-century peak, after a second successive day in which more than 100,000 people have applied to become party members.


In the ongoing struggle over Jeremy Corbyn's position, both loyalists and rebels have been recruiting. Corbyn's allies have done so via Momentum, the continuation of his leadership campaign, while  “Saving Labour”, an anti-Corbyn group, has secured the support of several high-profile celebrity supporters, including Jason Isaacs and JK Rowling. As far as social media presence is concerned, Saving Labour has over 4,000 likes at the time of writing, while Momentum has 53,808. 

Local parties – who are responsible for vetting new members in the first instance – report that the bulk of joiners who have responded to welcome emails or messages from MPs are strongly opposed to any attempt to remove Corbyn, in a boost to the Labour leader after a prolonged attempt to dislodge him.
