Jeremy Corbyn has also welcomed back leadership rival Owen Smith.
The newly-elected Labour MP in Gordon Brown’s former seat has been appointed Shadow Scottish Secretary. Former Fife Council
I've served on Labour's frontbench for much of the last 20 years, under four leaders. They all had flaws. And when I spoke to Jeremy today he agreed that that he, and we all, must do better. However, all four were elected leaders of our Party. Jeremy Corbyn's re-election earns him the right to lead Labour again, and the right to expect backing from Labour MPs. We must now pull together. Our task is to take on the Tories and win over the public.
Jeremy Corbyn has been lambasted by his former shadow culture secretary over Labour's "barmy" plan to scrap Britain's Trident
We had a leadership election that inspired hundreds of thousands, a leader that has opposed the government effectively, and the chance to do politics differently. Those who want to squabble over minor reshuffles can do so. The rest of us will be busy working to win hearts, minds and elections.
Jeremy Corbyn mounted a strident defence of last week’s reshuffle on Sunday, despite several high profile resignations from
Work and Pensions is a difficult brief. But hey, it's difficult caring for the most vulnerable people when you get little reward and little recognition. It's difficult getting rejection letters for every job you apply for. It's difficult being sanctioned when you are ten minutes late for a JobCentre appointment. We are all determined to make life just as difficult for the Tories now.
Did anyone else watch the Shadow Cabinet reshuffle with incredulity over the past 2 days? I surely did, as it seemed to contradict the core values of Corbyn's leadership and the promises he made for a 'straight talking, more honest politics' and the principles of open debate.
As it is, the official policy of Labour is to support the renewal. So again, Corbyn could be forced to rebel against his own party. Not that he is unused to that, but rebelling as leader? That would be something special. If he tries to force his Shadow Cabinet to vote against renewal, or even backs a free vote, people will walk. The blocks will fall. Corbyn will be left with a very small Jenga tower indeed...
