Jeremy Corbyn Will Be Challenged In Coup If Labour Fails At Local Elections, MP Simon Danczuk Says

A Labour backbencher has said he will try to oust Jeremy Corbyn as leader, to give more prominent colleagues a chance, if the party flops in May's elections.

Simon Danczuk, one of the left-winger's most vocal internal critics who supported Liz Kendall in the leadership election, said he would seek to stand as a "stalking horse" to force a contest.

He said his aim would be to open the door to colleagues such as Chuka Umunna, Dan Jarvis and Emma Reynolds to mount a challenge and "give us some chance of winning the next general election", The Press Association reports.
