It's obvious from the outset that he needed to say something, since the last few days have been particularly damaging for the party. The fact is, he won't be able to hang on for another year even if he tried; Labour is becoming split. If he allows the divisions to become any more open, it'll just provide Cameron with a bigger advantage.

best Labour could do is ditch the dodo. That way they'll be able to save at least SOME face before the next elections. Otherwise they may nearly cease to exist as a political influence.

Besides that I agree with steerpike, he had to say SOMETHING in order to 'survive'
