Good to hear that the Lewes Labour Party voted overwhelmingly in a formal debate to support the leadership of Jeremy Corbyn last evening. Well over a 100 people attended the meeting.

Just so you know, the unions posted to all members reasons to stay in europe and what out out would mean for them during the EU referendum, that is labour, explaining to those who want to listen, what was likely to happen if we voted out. So they didn't do nothing.

Do you seriously believe that Corbyn doesn't bicker?? Corbyn is trying to destroy the Labour part in the hope that a schism will form and a new popular leftist movement will come out of it. He's just as cynical as the others. And I voted for him!

Jeremy Corbyn is a decent, honest individual.
That's probably why he's not popular with nest of vipers that is the PLP.

Seems a nice pleasant guy but can't stop thinking that he is an off shoot of a 1980's CND protester. There's nothing statesman about him really. Maybe his demeanour and dress sense is a true reflection of the state of our country ??

It's like the 80s all over again, with the grass roots Labour Party membership unable to see the wood for the trees. Yes, Jeremy is probably a lovely man, far more principled than many politicians, but it's all academic if the electorate don't like him. If the members really care about society, they should focus on getting into power, not maintaining an ideologically pure mass debating society (geddit?).

Labour MPs and Jeremy Corbyn/Momentum both support uncontrolled immigration, as do (for much more rational reasons) global multinationals and UK employers who want to keep wages low and workers subservient.
Actual Labour voters can see from their own experience that such immigration lets employers keep wages low and terms and conditions oppressive, undercutting non-unionised workers.
They get zero support from either Jeremy Corbyn and his acolytes or the Labour MPs who seek to displace him, who all agree that uncontrolled immigration should continue. The only people who seem to appreciate their position are Nigel Farage and Brexit Tories like Gove.
Does not look good for the future of the Labour Party in England and Wales, who are rightly losing the support of their core voters because they are ignoring their key interests.

@Fairmeadow - I've seen this at first hand at a workplace. Employers love it, because six quid seems like a decent whack if you come from Slovakia and migrant workers will work like the clappers without a word of complaint. It's capitalism at its worst, continually striving to improve the bottom line at the expense of its workforce. Freedom of movement might be fine if you're a middle class polyglot who knows their way around Tuscanny, but for many others it just feels like a souped-up version of Norman Tebbit's 'On your bike' strategy. People should be able to find meaningful paid work in their home town without having to change areas, let alone countries. If the EU was as philanthropic as people make out, it should have done more to create parity between the different economies.
