I Read The Maddeningly Vague And Badly Worded Labour Leadership Rules So You Don't Have To

    The Labour leader suffered a heavy defeat in the confidence vote, with 172 MPs voting against him and only 40 backing him. But what does the result mean in practice?

    The vote does not remove Jeremy Corbyn as Labour leader.

    Why doesn't Corbyn call his MPs' bluff and announce a leadership election?

    So what can Corbyn's MPs do to force him out?

    What do the rules say about whether a standing leader automatically gets on the ballot?

    If Corbyn gets his name on the ballot, will he win?

    How long will all of this take?
