THE SECOND WAY IS NOT FEASIBLE:

Second peer abandons Labour benches in Lords over Corbyn's leadership (Nicola Slawson, 24 October 2015 06.The Guardian)

Lord Grabiner has become the second peer to abandon Labour's benches in the House of Lords because of Jeremy Corbyn's leadership of the party, saying "I can't square [staying] with my conscience".

His decision comes five days after former junior health minister Lord Warner resigned the Labour whip, saying it was no longer "a credible party of government-in-waiting".

A third peer, the former cabinet minister Lord Adonis, left the Labour benches last month after being recruited by the chancellor, George Osborne, to head the new national infrastructure commission.
