    Bunch of traitors. Enemies of the People. Blairites. Chancers. Betrayers.
    That’s just me being nice covering what I really think. They’ve let the Tories win to the next ejection. They will never be forgiven.

    I had this same thought. Nor should they be forgiven.

    You seem to be confirming what they said at their press conference.
    (I don't think John Smith would endorse your words either).

    They didn't belong in a socialist party anyway Good riddance. Into the political wilderness with them - rather like 'the Gang of Four'.

    Well - they will achieve two things at least.

    1. They will give May and the Tories a huge boost in the opinion polls

    2. They have ended their political careers

    So well done.

    It will be interesting to see who Labour fields against them.

    Shuker was going to be deselected anyway apparently.

    I want to dissociate myself from red's intemperate words about "traitors" and "enemies of the people", but I accept they are written in high dudgeon and frustration. I am saddened that the Labour Party can't all get behind the manifesto and the leader. However, now they have resigned, these 7 MUST resign and put themselves up for re-election. They owe it to their constituents.

    I trust they enjoy their moment in the spotlight.

    It won't last very long

    I don't get the arrogance of these people. Have they no sense of history? It did not work for the "gang of four" (and I can only remember three of them). Of this lot, I have heard of only one. Instant hasbeens. Maybe Cameron can join them, he is looking for a way to slither back in.

    It would be an interesting 2 horse race. One of the 7 v a Labour candidate.

    Given that each of the MP's constituencies voted to remain in the EU, how well do you think the Labour Party is serving them by not putting to put a 'people's referendum' on the table? Particularly as the leadership are ignoring party policy voted on at the last party conference after failing to get a GE.

    Isn't it comments like this that is the reason for them leaving. Too much intolerances of differences.

    I'm just hoping @red_observer fitted a clear plastic TV screen protector before 10am this morning. Mental image of a metal bust of Lenin being hurled with venom in the telly's general direction. :)

    Makes me glad I gave my Lenin bust to my Union activist daughter a few weeks ago.

    Or it just might be the start of a new party.

    It is a sign of a healthy democracy when MPs have a mind of their own. Blindly following a leader and a dreary movement is not. Since Labour are now red kippers, enabling a right wing Brexit, they are giving hope to the 48% plus.

    My head says New Independent is a good compromise, my heart says Corbyn Labour, my dues go to the Green Party.

    And the anti-semitic problem must be a real problem. I assumed it was a Jewish tory smear. How embarrassingly cynical is that? The votes of the racist end of the Islamic community and whoever else it is with the knee-jerk bigots aren't worth that much compared to holding decent principles.

    Good luck to them.

    And Red, is that irony? I do hope so. Abusing people for their holding onto their principles is not a good look.

    probably wrong

    If the party is anti-semitic it deserves a good kicking.
    And I bet it won't convert into Tory votes.

    Their careers are safe enough too.
    Do you think Soubery, Morgan, and Grieve have destroyed their careers?

    With the exception of the Angela Smith constituency, the result is a foregone conclusion, which is precisely why the proponents of a "People's Vote" will avoid one at all costs.
