Does anyone seriously believe that a Corbyn-supporting candidate at Richmond Park would have taken fewer votes than there were members of the Constituency Labour Party?
For example, might no Barnaby Marder, who got Labour to contest the seat at all, have done better than that?
Ho, hum. Believe in Labour losses either to the Lib Dems or to UKIP when such a thing actually happens.
And look at all those Remain-voting constituencies across the South that are currently blue on the electoral map.
Theresa May's number one electoral priority is now to stop them from turning yellow.
Not purple. Not red, come to that. Yellow.
