Jeremy Corbyn refuses to say whether pre-election Jeremy Corbyn would step down for post-election Jeremy Corbyn

UK Politics

Jeremy Corbyn has refused to say whether he would stand down as Labour leader if the party lost the next general election.

Considering Jeremy told the media he expected to win the election, why should he answer “hypothetical” questions?

Such as, what’s his party’s “hypothetical” stance on remaining within, or leaving the EU?

Earlier this week, shadow chancellor and close ally John McDonnell said he “can’t see” how Mr Corbyn could stay on if Labour lost a general election.

That should be: if Labour lost ‘another’ general election.

Mr Corbyn saw off a leadership challenge from Owen Smith in 2016.

A senior source within the Labour Party explained: “Jeremy suggested we decide leadership issues with a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors, Block Vote.

Block Vote conquers all, and only Jeremy can use it.

Among the figures touted as potential future leaders are shadow foreign secretary Emily Thornberry and shadow business secretary Rebecca Long-Bailey. Backbench MP Jess Phillips has also said she “might” enter any contest.

With none of the Labour MP’s suggested as potential leaders having the name ‘Jeremy Corbyn’, it’s difficult to see the how the pre-election Jeremy Corbyn would approve of there not being a post-election Jeremy Corbyn – hypothetically.
