Perhaps Corbyn thinks that it is better to get his thumping loss over sooner rather than later. He might think he can face it down now, but after another three years in charge, he won't have the same appeal if he loses in a landslide.

Peter, the Monster Raving Loony Party definitely still exists. Whether they will put up a candidate to stand in your constituency I don't know.

Commie Corbyn lives in la la land! I think he actually believes that Labour may gain a majority and he may be Her Majesty's First Minister!

The suggestion makes a lot of sense, actually. With the frankly deranged way the Labour leader is currently elected, it is quite possible that Corbyn could survive in the post even if the worst predictions of the outcome (from the Labour point of view) are fulfilled, and then some. After another three years of chaos in the party, probably not, there would be no possibility of claiming that things will somehow turn around. It is notable that despite his instruction to vote in favour of yesterday's motion the bulk of those voting against were Labour MPs, nine in all, and plenty more abstained. His control over the wider party may be strong, but over the Parliamentary party is near non-existent, with little prospect of an improvement in that respect.

I'm still torn over voting. I didn't in the last election but had a pretty fair excuse then, as I was in hospital having recently emerged from a two-week coma and at the time couldn't even speak due to the breathing tube in my throat. Arranging a postal vote was not exactly the first thing on my extremely confused mind when I regained consciousness, and in fact I was only peripherally aware the election was even happening. I believe people should vote, which obviously means I should, I love where I'm living now and hope to be here for years and years, and am I really going to disenfranchise myself, local elections aside, until Duncan Smith retires? It'll probably come down to how I feel on the day.
