It would seem that a number of Labour MPs have been given the “black spot”.

They have been named in a list generated by the Jeremy Corbyn campaign team.

It would appear that Corbyn will win by a huge margin.

Their comments and actions over the campaign duration seem to have sealed their fate, if the Momentum group has anything to do with it.

Following the declaration of the result and prior to the Labour conference, it would seem it is going to be a tense time for them as they contemplate their political futures.

That contemplation will be the driving force to all that follows.

That is, if they have a future.

When the dust settles it is likely that the disenchanted MPs will be trying to build a new party, either inside or as a new structure outside of the existing framework.

If that division in the Labour Party happens it will cease to exist, and many Labour voters will be left in a massive quandary as to what to do when they come to vote next time around.

Or will they?

Many are already defecting in more and more numbers to what they rightly perceive as a party that is in tune with their concerns and thinking, which is what they should be doing.
