He must keep up the pressure
IF there were an early election, Labour would win and we’d hail Prime Minister Jeremy Corbyn.
So his warring Tory rivals will kill each other over Brexit and put Theresa May out of her misery... but will bribe, bung and battle to avoid a suicide poll before 2022.
Mr Corbyn scents Downing Street and the faithful believe he will be in No10 by next September.
But the tough part is engineering that election.
If this Parliament goes the distance, the odds are Labour will fight next time under a new leader.
Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell demonstrated his importance as the architect of bold plans to remould the economy.
But the party’s new darling is Angela Rayner, an education spokeswoman of the old school, who this week emerged as one of Labour’s best TV performers.
