As fuuny as it is the real scandal is that an unelected peer can be selected as a member of the cabinet or shadow cabinet, i take it Corbyn has dropped his view of an elected upper chamber then.

As ktv suggested at the top of this page, i don't think it will be long before Corbyn falls into line with the party, and to select Watson shows how out of touch he is with the feelings of the people of Scotland.

Politics is the 'art of the possible'. It's early days yet. Old Latin proverb : 'Hasten slowly'.

Brexit: 'Half' of Labour top team set to resign

Up to half of the shadow cabinet is set to resign in a bid to oust Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, it is understood.
It follows shadow foreign secretary Hilary Benn's sacking after he told the leader he had "lost confidence" in him.
Hours later, shadow health secretary Heidi Alexander said she would resign.
Mr Corbyn faces a vote of no confidence over claims he was "lacklustre" during the EU referendum - but shadow chancellor John McDonnell said Mr Corbyn was "not going anywhere".
Sources close to the Labour leader have said he would stand again in the event of any leadership election - and Mr McDonnell said he would chair his campaign again, as he ruled out ever standing for the leadership himself.
Meanwhile, a shadow cabinet member told the BBC: "I imagine that there'll be a leadership election and Jeremy will win. But this is a total distraction."
Iain Murray, shadow Scottish secretary and Labour's only Scottish MP, and Lillian Greenwood, who holds the shadow transport brief, are also expected to resign from the Labour front bench later on Sunday, BBC political editor Laura Kuennssberg said.

On the sacking of Hilary Benn, a Labour source told the BBC Mr Corbyn had "lost confidence" in the shadow foreign secretary.
Newspaper reports suggested Mr Benn had been encouraging shadow ministers to resign if Mr Corbyn ignored a motion of no confidence.
Mr Benn said there was concern about Mr Corbyn's "leadership and his ability to win an election".
He said he had phoned the Labour leader to tell him "I had lost confidence in his ability to lead the party and he dismissed me".

Speaking on the BBC's Andrew Marr Show, Mr Benn said: "At this absolutely critical time for our country following the EU referendum result, the Labour Party needs strong and effective leadership to hold the government to account.
"We don't currently have that and there is also no confidence we would be able to win a general election as long as Jeremy remains leader. And I felt it was important to say that."
Asked if he thought Mr Corbyn should resign, he said he did but added "that is a matter for him".
Mr Benn also ruled out standing for the Labour leadership.

Looks like Corbyn doesn't have the backing of the Westminster politicians but is still popular amongst the Labour public, if he wins another vote does that mean that those Labour MP's opposed to him should stand down..

The majority of Labour voters voted leave; he was opposed to leaving. Like his mentors in socialism who saw Europe as a united "World Order" he had his eye like all Stalinists on the big picture.

A leadership of Europe, under a benevolent dictatorship. What is the E.U. but that. I think there may be a split forming a new "New Labour" as not all Labour voters are extreme leftist revolutionaries. That is until they get into a parliamentary affluent life style and then the "working Class" can kiss their %$## and use the red flag to wipe it.
