But in his letter to Mr Corbyn, the former MP for West Bromwich, thanked the leader "for the decency and courtesy you have shown me over the last four years, even in difficult times".
Good letter. I’ve heard it genuinely is for personal reasons.

It’s a shame, he has been a great supporter of the arts, which are hugely important in British life and its economy. Ed Vaizey going as well - bad day for culture.

I voted for Tom to be Deputy Leader but I'm pleased he's gone. Without his influence I might still be a Labour member/voter.

So when exactly did you resign from the party?

I appreciate that this has not been a vintage Parliament and Brexit has been divisive but there are an alarming number not restanding including a fair few front benchers. Seems either things are polarising or its just a shit job (or both)

Very sad. May have a different position on Brexit to him, but agree with his position on so much more. Assuming Labour fail on Dec 12th Tom would have my vote as a new leader

The voters of West Bromwich East deserve a candidate like the winner of Coventry South, who is far more representative of Corbyn's labour and the views of the local electorate.

Corbyn's 'New Labour' finishing Hitler's dream!

Vote all those anti-Semites in and turn 5 eyes to 4.

At least it is at the start of the campaign, which he has done deliberately.

An inactive, detached person cannot think of anything he has done.

Stood up to leadership’s utter failure to deal with anti-semitism. Fought the membership’s position for a sane Brexit policy. Acted as a conduit between leadership and the PLP which I suspect has had a lot to do with the fact that that relationship did not completely breakdown into open warfare (I strongly suspect he’s the reason the defections by the PLP were limited to single figures).

Took on the Murdoch empire re hacking when so many politicians cowered at the thought.

Maybe I am missing something - really wouldn't be even the 1000th time - but can I take it that you are mainstream Labour but also a Leaver, who has left the UK to live in Spain?
