But that’s not the problem she faces:
One of the MPs tipped to replace Jeremy Corbyn as Labour leader has been accused of calling northern voters “stupid” in a row over who was to blame for the party’s election defeat.
Emily Thornberry, who represents a Remain-voting constituency next to Mr Corbyn’s in north London, is alleged to have told a fellow MP in a Leave-voting seat: “I’m glad my constituents aren’t as stupid as yours”.
Absolutely everyone thinks she could have said it so it will stick. More, everyone thinks she believes it even if she didn’t say it.
