Corbyn is not going anywhere anytime soon unless there is a defeat at a general election at the earliest. But even after Corbyn leaves his supporters will stay and they will remain active, so what needs to be done is not fight with them and add to the wall brick by brick but to try and reach out to them.
Labour's highly successful conference has given us the term "21st Century Socialism" as a label to describe Corbyn's new political strategy. Cynics and plotters may observe that this term, rhetorically, performs the same role as "New Labour" - it looks back, but moves forward. But I really like it. Restoring socialism to the centre of public policy is a smart move that will advance political debate in this country.
Repeating over and over again that you want to win elections does not constitute a strategy, a vision, or a project. On the contrary, the primary objective is to make party members understand that they can only aspire to affect positive change on the world if they defer to the experts and professionalised political actors who make up the Parliamentary Labour Party and their assorted entourage.
The 2016 Labour Party Conference in Liverpool validated that last year's in-fighting resulted in a bruised and divided party that will take time to come together again. It was a year wasted and should not be repeated. Thankfully, there was a glimmer of hope for the future.
Following the announcement of Jeremy Corbyn's second Labour leadership victory over the weekend, moderates in the party have now been left at a crossroads - do they stay or do they go? With Labour embroiled in a civil war that has turned ideological disagreements in to chasms of discontent, the temptation must be there for 'moderates' in the Labour Party to jump ship.
Labour is clear on the long-term direction of travel of the British economy. The Tories are trying to lock the country into the old, dirty technologies that harm our communities and the people who are forced to live with disruption on their doorstep... By contrast, Labour will back the clean technologies of the future, and make sure the opportunities for good jobs, investment and a safe environment are shared across the whole of the UK.
Each year Labour's governing body, the National Executive Committee, can propose changes to the party's rules to be voted on at Labour Party Conference. Recently there has been increased interest in what any potential rule changes might be. People have speculated about whether these changes will be used to pursue various factional agendas or "settle scores". In reality, the rule changes we have spent the past year working on are designed to improve campaigning, communications and engagement through digital technology and Party Reform.
Denis will be remembered by all in politics, regardless of affiliation with affection. He was simply the best of politicians. A socialist, a man of firm conviction, a heavyweight intellectual, a mischievous wit and story teller, a patriot and someone the British public felt they could trust. Ultimately, a dreadnought class politician who helped rescue our economy and saved the Labour Party in its darkest hour. I am grateful to have known him and to have had my life enriched by his company.
Let's offer a hand of friendship to the Labour right: get behind our new leader for his sins, stop this sniping from the sidelines and bring your voice to the table. If Jeremy Corbyn's "new politics" is to mean anything at all, it is a voice that will be most welcome.
In the midst of party conference season, there can be no doubt that charities are well and truly on the political agenda.
I reiterate today what I said to Labour conference earlier this week: we will fight as hard as we can to protect and preserve the Human Rights Act and we will do everything in our power to stop the Government walking away from the European Convention on Human Rights. Standing up for human rights is not just an essential part of Labour's values. It's part of our character and identity as a country.
The first Labour Party conference under Jeremy Corbyn's leadership has to be considered a resounding success. In fact considering the circumstances in which it took place Corbyn and his shadow chancellor, John McDonell, played a blinder...
Broadcasters seem to relish the opportunity to play the Robin Hood theme song whenever the Robin Hood Tax is in the news, as it has been over the past few days... So as City lobbyists are hastily dusting off their crib sheets on why we should oppose an FTT, it's worth tackling their main charges head on
We were promised fireworks and until the final day all we really got was sparklers. Labour is having a proper row over whether it should ditch the Trident nuclear weapons system after Jeremy Corbyn said he would never push the button. But until then, it was all going relatively well. Labour civil war? Not yet.
It is no secret that Jeremy Corbyn won the social media battle among his party leader challengers over the summer. Having appealed to a younger and more tech-savvy audience, Corbyn had a bigger social media presence and was even the source of several social media trends (such as #Jezwecan). But could this strong start on social media continue once he was in the top job?
Like most people I attended the Labour Party Conference in Brighton not really knowing what to expect. Would the mood feel like a celebration or a wake? What policy positions would emerge? And what would Jeremy Corbyn focus on in his first speech?
