Jeremy Corbyn will not return as Labour MP, says Sir Keir Starmer

What’s the distinction?

He no longer has the party whip:-

Basically if you don’t have the authority of the party whip behind you there’s a chance you can still hold a set but you won’t be holding it as part of the party the whip is associated with. So Corbyn is now essentially an independent MP for the nonce. Whether that will go on and on well who knows.
