That is a very good question.

When they are all varying degrees of bad, vote tactically to make sure your least favourite doesn't get in.

If you can't bring yourself to vote for any of them, spoil your ballot paper and maybe consider running yourself next time around or getting someone else to step up.

First past the post is a bit crap, I'm sure lots of people will simply not bother.

Corbyn won't be able to stay on, because the Labour grandees won't let him, they will throw their weight behind one candidate, and the loss of the election and 100 odd seats means his followers will not have the heart for a battle (they might think they do but like football teams, there are always more followers when you're winning). He might have to be removed but he will not win a leadership contest post GE of that I'm sure.

The New Statesman posits he could be removed now, because he doesn't have the numbers as it stands (given people who said they'd support him but didn't think he'd get to the next general election) - but it would have to be the right candidate.

as the Wire put it "come at the king, you best not miss".

He will be taken down, when it's certain he will lose.

Isn't he certain to lose now? What are they waiting for if not, the exit poll?

If Cooper was in place with 4 weeks campaigning to go the Tories would shit themselves.

Cruella wants Britain 'to lead the world in preventing tourism' :-)

Isn't that taking hatred of Johnny Foreigner a tad too far?

TRO - not certain now - the polls imply that but not by much. If he won again would make it worse, hence I think they'll wait, and then lock the hard left out permanently.
