Hostility towards Corbyn within the Labour Party
Given the recent resignation of Iain Duncan Smith and the apparent schism within the Conservative Party over the topic of European Union membership, it may be easy to forget that the Labour Party has been a very divided group since their crushing defeat in the May 2015 General Election.
Factionalism within the Labour Party seems to be growing rather than diminishing, even though it would appear to be less divided over the EU question. This has been compounded by a leaked list that has emerged over the last few days showing how the group of Labour MPs can be split in terms of their degree of hostility towards their leader, Jeremy Corbyn. The list attempts to categorise MPs as either Core (very loyal), Core Group Plus (loyal), Neutral but not hostile (indifferent to Corbyn's leadership), Core Group Negative (openly hostile to Corbyn), and Hostile. The provenance of the list is uncertain - some claim that Corbyn's inside group have created this whilst others have suggested that rival factions have created the list to enable them to draw up battle lines. A deeper analysis of the list can be found in this Guardian article.
