Jeremy will win the vote. The MPs hold the key to what happens next. If they all ask for their jobs back he is home safe because they are dependent on him to be reselected for the next election but if there are enough willing to tough it out there will be a split. Nobody has tested the whole electorate as to whether he is as popular with them as he is with Labour Party members. It's scarey to think he could be in charge of the country.
40,000 people have had their applications to vote in the Labour leadership election rejected. They were rejected if: they previously supported a rival party candidate were not on the electoral register their payments bounced. made racist, sexist or anti-Semitic remarks -there's a database!
But here's the sting
People deemed ineligible do not receive refunds, meaning Labour will enjoy up to £4 million of extra funds from the £25 fees paid by each supporter.
