I hope he knows what he’s doing, as a former head of the CPS he probably feel confident that the Police (who have already investigated the incident and found that no rules were broken) will do so again, exonerated him and then putting the pressure back on the Tory party for insisting the police, that refused to investiga Cummins visit to Barnard Castle, to reinvestigate the incident.
If his gamble doesn’t pay off then it’s interesting times ahead for labour - Raynor would have to go as well (as she was also present), Corbin still has allies in the party (unfortunately), but I’d be happy with a leadership contest involving Wes Streeting, Lisa Nandy and I would hope that Andy Burnham could be persuaded to join any contest, interestingly all 3 are from the North, where the electorate have been promised so much in the last general election by the Tories (levelling up) only to then get a much watered down version.

It really is a shame that he's now being smeared by the right wing press for apparently putting pressure on Durham Police. As one twitter poster said, if he donated a kidney, the right wing press would complain that he'd kept one for himself.

I forgot that he had to give up is position as an MP to become mayor of Manchester, that’s a huge shame.

That’s true, but it would be a very good test of his ability to connect with the electorate and to put forward his visions for the country and the direction of the Labour Party under his stewardship.
