Jeremy Corbyn has said he will not lead Labour into the next election, following a “very disappointing night” but says he will stay on as leader during a “process of reflection”.
Basically, the allotment owner and part-time Labour ‘leader’ has promised to stand down from the Labour leadership but not before he’s done enough to extend the Tories power for another five years from 2024.
The news has already resulted in a massive spending cut from the Conservative’s next election campaign.
Mr Corbyn blamed Brexit saying it had polarised politics.
At 33%, Labour’s share of the vote is lower than even Neil Kinnock achieved in 1992.
It’s clear that this campaign was a complete and total abject failure.
Corbyn says he did “everything he could” to get Labour into power and he will not “walk away” until another leader is elected
As such, Labour promise to continue to do exactly the same thing for the next few years to ensure an as-good, if not much, much worse, performance at the next elections in 5 years’ time.
Obviously, campaigning against the one-party state by then may very well be a criminal offence, but no more criminal than not standing down when your strategy has completely and totally failed.
Labour members now face a tough choice about whether to vote Conservative again like they did just now.
