Within hours of Richard Leonard being declared the new leader of the Labour Party Scottish Branch, there were a few issues, regarding his leadership techniques:

Then we had this - Richard Leonard saying that Keiza Dugdale will be suspended for appearing on "I'm a Celebrity..... Get Me Out Of Here":

Will Richard Leonard do a good job, as the leader of the Scottish Branch of the Labour Party? 

Is Richard Leanord even in charge of the Scottish Branch of the Labour Party?

So, according to the guardian today, Sadiq Khan thinks the Labour Party cannot win under Corbyn and is going to vote for Owen Smith.

In last years' General Election, there were only 30.7 million people that voted, and the Conservatives got 11.3 million votes.  15.7 million people did not vote. 

What about the 15.7 million registered voters? Are they not worth trying to capture, to engage them in politics? Or perhaps they think that the political system is so insidious, that voting will make no difference?

How about all coming together to become the opposition that is needed, and engage the millions that did not vote, instead of trying to bullying your leader into resigning and disengaging thousands of your members?

At the last count, I heard that the Labour party had over 600,000 members. Over 180,000 members signed up in the two-day window deadline the other week.

If Jeremy Corbyn is so unelectable, why has the membership soared? Where have these people come from? Why were they not members of the Labour Party before, under previous leaders? Why are hundreds, if not thousands of people attending his rallies?

It seems to me that the real reason that they are all saying that Jeremy Corbyn is not electable is because he is not for sale to the highest bidder.
