DIGNITY?:

Labour Leader Corbyn Loses No-Confidence Vote As Brexit Crisis Deepens (REUTERS,  06/28/16)

Britain's Brexit political crisis deepened Tuesday when lawmakers in the opposition Labour Party passed a motion of no confidence in its leader Jeremy Corbyn by an overwhelming margin, but Corbyn said he would not resign.

In the nonbinding vote, Labour lawmakers voted 172-40 against Corbyn, the 67-year old left-wing activist behind a socialist rebranding of Britain's main opposition party. [...]

"It is now clear that Jeremy Corbyn has lost the support of the overwhelming majority of the Parliamentary Labour Party," Labour lawmaker Wes Streeting told Reuters.

"He's now just got to do the decent thing and accept he is not up to the job and resign with dignity so we can move on and draw a line under this sorry episode," Streeting said.

If the bitter-clinging advocates of the First and Second Ways had any dignity they'd all retire from the field. Mr. Corbyn wanted to drag Labour back to the party it was prior to Tony Blair.
