Activists – angered by being called a “rabble” by Mr Watson – believe he is a threat to their growing power base,

Plotters are also considering creating a second deputy leadership role for a woman to clip Mr Watson’s wings, according to The Times.

Pro-Corbyn blog Skwawkbox talked up Ms Thornberry’s chances of a challenge this week.

But the signatures of 52 Labour MPs are required to trigger a contest.

  1. I love the way we’re described as Hard Left, to Tom Watson’s Centrist position! Lol
    Jeremy Corbyn is not Hard Left.
    To me, he seems to be more slightly left of central, and it’s only the tories and their hard right friends, in whichever party they happen to be in, who would consider him to be anything else!
