Just so we're clear, does that mean we aren't allowed to criticise him, his election or anything he does?

Only I have a few criticisms of him and I need to know whether I would be deemed as "not getting behind him" if I were to air them.
Who said no criticism? Maybe just don't stick the boot in the second he's been elected, I dunno.
Tell that to his more fanatical followers

Criticism is essential. The left will need to be prepared to criticise Corbyn when it has to, while at the same time defending him against the right. But for Christ's sake let's have some political criticism instead of this shit sensationalism we've had so far.

Of course he's to be subjected to scrutiny and criticism, but having been elected with no need for second choice counts, maybe - in the interests of that fairer society that we all claim to seek - it's time to accept that members and supporters have spoken, and that maybe it's time to start sticking it to the tories and kippers instead of each other.

I see the character assassinations of those who don't want to serve in a Corbyn cabinet are already in full swing on social media. Given how utterly awful "Blairism" apparently is according to them it's amazing it's the only thing to have won Labour any General Elections at all in the last 4 decades, isn't it?

I know pathetic we've got five more years of this. Remember when Corbyn didn't support Blair that was principled when they refuse to serve in his shadow cabinet there traitors.

Admirably candid. Probably grounds for expulsion, though. If this petulance is typical of the right's response they're going to make themselves a lot easier to sideline.

London FBU ‏@LondonFBU 45m45 minutes ago
With Corbyn's victory, the London region of the FBU will now begin a debate about the merits of reaffiliating our union to the Labour party.
Good stuff. RMT and PCS next...
