Labour’s summer of madness continues over the battle for the leadership:
Jeremy Corbyn: Labour MPs are plotting a coup against the potential leader if he is elected
Labour MPs are plotting to mount a coup against Jeremy Corbyn before Christmas, if he wins the leadership in September.
The left-wing MP for Islington North has staged a stunning raid on support among constituency labour party (CLP) organisations in the past week, prompting panic among supporters of the three mainstream candidates, Andy Burnham, Yvette Cooper and Liz Kendall. Two internal polls also suggested a surge in support for Mr Corbyn, with one even suggesting he could win on 12 September.
