I fail to see how deselection is deemed a form of Martyrdom on these neoliberal times.
Out in the real world, jobs are becoming increasingly precarious.
Let this man of independent thought run as an independent.
Ok Bones rule 1. Don't use the word neo-liberal with me. Second he would say I've been forced out by these awful lefties look at me, look at me.
I've looked at him. He's a mess. Need to take better care of himself. Needs a rest form the rigours of media whoredom.

People would be better off ignoring him, or telling him that if he doesn't like it he should fuck off. The ball is then in his court to decide whether he wants to stay or go, and keep using the line when he inevitably doesn't (too much of a chance he'll end up losing out for him to risk it) just point out that he had the chance to leave but didn't.

Enforcing his departure is the very worst thing that Labour can do with him right now.
You may well be right.
My career experience has seen me develop a very low tolerance for the "shits on the inside".

Understandable, however giving them exactly what they want is never the best way of dealing with them, however objectionable a little shit they may be.

Resign, defect to UKIP and stand for Rochdale dragging the whole abuse thing back into the spotlight and painting it as being Labour in cahoots with paedos?

They might as well call these Corbyn PLP meeting stories 'Jess Phillips reporting'

I was looking at the side story. DM's welcome to return and seek a seat but to stand in Tooting will turn the by-election into a media circus which will be all about him and 'Labour civil war'.
IS DAVID MILIBAND PLOTTING A COMEBACK IN THE CAPITAL?
David Miliband’s return to Britain this week has prompted speculation that he could try to return to Parliament as Labour MP for Tooting.

There will be a by-election on June 9 after the South London seat was vacated by the capital’s new mayor Sadiq Khan.

Mr Miliband is back after taking a break from his job heading an international charity in New York to warn against leaving the EU.

The deadline for applications to stand for Labour in the poll is 10am today and any party member can apply. Candidates will be grilled by Labour’s ruling NEC body tomorrow and the successful representative will be selected by Saturday.

Now we know what he wants: teen-poontang.
