Lord Grabiner

Sam Coates (The Times):  Lord Grabiner, the leading barrister, has quit Labour in the Lords over Corbyn... Lord Grabiner told The Times: “I have nothing in common whatever with Mr Corbyn - and I don’t believe we are ever going to win an election.”  Lord Grabiner says John McDonnell's proposals and views “are terribly damaging and there is no effective opposition” to the Conservatives.

Is this an isolated incident?  Is Lord Grabiner acting on his own?  Or is it part of a planned sequence, a death by a thousand cuts rebellion against Jeremy Corbyn (since open revolt is impossible given the scale of his election victory)?
