Why Corbyn will win

The attempted coup against Jeremy Corbyn will fail despite the vote of no confidence by 172 Labour members of parliament against 40 in his support.
The reason why they will fail in removing Corbyn as leader was highlighted by the recently released report into the Iraq war by Sir John Chilcot. This disastrous and unpopular war was forced onto the British people by Tony Blair as the then Labour prime Minister. The vast majority of those who voted for war are among the 172. Corbyn and his supporters did not support the war and their opposition has been justified by history.
