Owen Smith's Leadership challenge is a long-planned attempt by the giant American pharmaceutical companies to remove the principal obstacle to their taking control of the NHS, at least in England.
After this appointment, that should be clear even to anyone who had not already been able to see it.
Take out the Labour frontbench opposition to NHS privatisation, and what such opposition would there be? 20 to 40 Labour backbenchers, and the minor parties.
There is one flaw in this scheme, however.
Owen Smith is not going to win.
