'Even Corbyn Would Struggle To Name His Shadow Cabinet'

Nick Ferrari points out the key flaw in Jeremy Corbyn's latest shadow cabinet reshuffle: he's gone through so many Labour MPs, even he would struggle to identify some of them.
In the wake of Brexit vote in the Commons, Jeremy Corbyn has reshuffled his shadow cabinet and the new names have left Nick scratching his head.
"Only the Labour party could go from a couple of days ago absolutely trouncing the Prime Minister at PMQs...and then within hours, it all started to unravel.
"Four of his top team resigning because they voted against Article 50.
"In comes: Peter Dowd. Nope.
"Sue Hayman? No, don't know that one either.
"What about Rebecca Long-Bailey? Yes, these are phenomenal! He's probably struggling to work out who they all are. That's his biggest problem now, recognising them!"
And about Clive Lewis, rumoured as a potential leadership challenger after he quit the shadow front bench.
"He'll be handed a role that will keep him close to Jeremy Corbyn's office," said Nick. "Obviously it's a good idea: keep your friends close and your enemies even closer."
